Willingdon Island - Kochi | Kerala Backwater


Willingdon Island is one of the most beautiful places in the Kochi area. This man-made island, named after a former Viceroy, is one of India's biggest of its kind. It is a major shopping center with some of the city's best hotels. It is also home to the Indian Navy's Kochi Naval Base, the Central Fisheries Technology Institute, and the Kochi Port. It handles millions of tons of freight every year. The Venduruthy Bridge connects the island to the mainland. The ferry ride is loved by all, and boat trips around the island give you a spectacular view of the place. 


Known after Lord Willingdon who was a British Viceroy of India, Willingdon Island is one of India's largest artificial man-made islands located in Kochi City, Kerala. It connects Kochi with other world seaports and houses some of the district's best hotels and commercial & industrial buildings. This beautiful island is surrounded by Kerala's beautiful backwaters.

It is considered the habitat of the Kochi port and the Indian Navy and Central Fisheries Technology Institute's Kochi Naval Base. One who wants to feel the serene atmosphere and the natural beauty can visit here and enjoy the holiday with pleasure. This island is a heart of the Cochin Shipyard area where luxury hotels are located; some also offer views of the Arabia Sea.

HISTORY

The legend says that the first building on the island had been purchased by Robert Bristow, who was the chief protagonist and engineer for the project, but now the entire land is under Cochin Port Trust and Indian Navy. This island was created with the soil trench during the construction of the modern Kochi Port in 1936, while deepening the Vembanad Lake for the new Kochi Port.
