    Not Toursisty as few go there but you can take ferry from fort or town to see the man made Island built a long time ago

    The boat ride from marine drive to bolgatty was a nice experience. Now it's mostly resort /private property so public access restricted.

    It is situated in very near to Ernakulam City. Earlier this island was accessible only through machine boats and rowing boats. Later the island was connected through Gosree bridges and now it is connected with Vallarpadam container terminal highway (NH966A). There you can see Bolgatty palace, prawns farming and fishing. A nice place to enjoy some times.

    Gundu (the island is also known as Perl Island now) is a tiny island, virtually at the mouth of Cochin Harbour, surrounded by—literally floating on— backwaters, tucked between Vallarpadom Island and Vypeen Island. The man-made Wellington Island and Fort Cochin are within close vicinity. The island is accessible only by boat even today.

    The Aspinwall and Company owned this island from the early 1900s. A coir factory, a cottage industry, functioned there for long. When the company was about to close the factory, a workers’ co-operative took over and continued for years.

    For a number of years today, the pristine island is on long-term lease to the Taj Group, the Tata’s hotel business. Its potential is huge, by virtue of its exquisite locality and wonderful ambiance. However, the place is under utilised. The Taj offers to host private parties, lunch or dinner there.
