Best Places in Trivandrum for a Weekend Getaway

Trivandrum is the coastal capital city of the ever-green Kerala state and nestles over seven undulating hills. Trivandrum is expanding rapidly and has a robust real estate industry. There is no shortage of homes for those who want to buy flats in Trivandrum. The amazing number of attractive weekend getaways close to Trivandrum further adds to the attraction of setting up home in Trivandrum. Here’s a look at some of them:


The natural beauty of the largely-unexplored Poovar beach, mangrove forests in the backwaters and the point where Neyyar River meets the ocean, makes Poovar the perfect weekend getaway. Stay over at one of the many resorts here and go for a sunset boat ride through the mangrove-riddled backwaters for the perfect evening!


Kovalam is on the global map for its beautiful beaches including the Lighthouse beach, Samudra beach and the Hawa beach, all of which are crescent-shaped and fun for swimming and other watersports. Ayurvedic massages, cultural events and shopping for spices and artisan handicrafts are some of the other activities here.


Known as the ‘Golden peak of Trivandrum’ Ponmudi forms the tail-end of the rolling Western Ghats. Covered with lush tea plantations, ayurveda herb gardens and greenery, Ponmudi features numerous gems in the form of deer parks, waterfalls and streams too. It’s a popular trekking and mountain climbing destination with Agasthayakoodam forming the highest peak in this region.

Happy Land Water Theme Park

Tucked into a hillside at Vembayam, Happy Land Water theme park is the perfect location for fun activities for the entire family. Enjoy the thrill of the wave pool, the bizarre uphill water rides, mini waterfalls, crazy cruises and of course the slides at the family pool.

Neyyar Dam & Wildlife Sanctuary

Neyyar dam is the ideal destination to commune with mother nature, go for a cruise across the sprawling reservoir, visit the Lion Safari on an island in the middle of the dam or get intrigued by the crocodile farm. And for a more benign experience, you can visit the Elephant Rehabilitation Center nearby.


Varkala is famous for its pristine beaches, cliffs, forts, ayurvedic spas and beach resorts. Popular with tourists, Varkala makes an ideal weekend getaway from city life.
