  • Address: Indira Gandhi Road, Willingdon Island
One of India’s major seaports, Kochi’s harbour is up there with the world’s most scenic waterways, providing one of the few all-weather safe harbours on India’s west coast.

In the center of the harbour, between Fort Cochin’s promontory and the mainland, is man-made Wellington Island, the area’s main seaport and transport terminal.

The harbour’s channels and reclaimed developments were carried out in the early 20th century, establishing the infrastructure that makes it Kerala’s commercial capital and major port city today.

The massive container cranes, cargo docks, marinas, shipyards, cruise facilities and Indian Navy operations are in sharp contrast to the traditional fishing boats that dot the harbour, and Chinese fishing nets that trawl the waters.

Catching a ferry across the harbour is a must-do while in Kochi, sailing from Fort Kochi jetty to Wellington Island and Ernakulam. Another way to see the harbour is by taking a stroll along the waterfront promenade, Marine Drive, fringing the peninsula.

Practical Info

Kochi Harbour takes in the Fort Cochin peninsula and Wellington Island. Ferries and bridges provide links to the Ernakulam mainland.
