About Willingdon Island
Accessible by road and Railway Bridge, Willingdon Island contains the modern port that today links it with other seaports. The port was used by the British and its use has increased since Independence. On a sunny day the island makes a pleasant sight, modern buildings and palm trees across the lapping blue water. You can take a boat ride and if lucky, watch the dolphins.
There are warehouses, business and trade offices, and a couple of hotels on this artificial island. However, it is definitely worth a visit for a history lesson since Willingdon Island was a popular stop in the spice trade route. The Venduruthy Bridge, which connects it to the mainland, is also an architectural sight to see.
