“Island”
Review of Willingdon Island

Willingdon Island
Ranked #44 of 193 things to do in Kochi (Cochin)
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 February 2018

popularly known as the Island by the locals, I used to work at the Trident Cochin which is located on this Island apart from the Taj hotel, hence lot of beautiful memories.
we took the Ferry ride from Ernakulam jetty and got down on our way to Fort Kochi
Nothin much to do at the Island, just walk around and enjoy the nature
the roads and buildings have been quite well maintained and its a treat to walk around and explore ...

Very nice hotels on the Island. Interesting because it is man made. Otherwise not a tourist spot...very little to see.

We were staying at the north end of Willington Island (Taj Malabar) during September. The island seems to be occupied by a cement factory, the Indian Navy and other maritime related industries. There really isn't much to see here, large areas of the island are wasteland, and other occupied by ugly warehouses and crumpling buildings. There are a few buildings, but these should be observed from the sea, perhaps take a cruise around the island from fort cochin or the mainland!

I was surprised in my first entry, this place is looking awesome and it is different comparing to other places in Kochi. I felt to take my family to this place for relaxation. Wish to visit again….!
