Veli Tourist village (8°30’33″N 76°53’21″E) , sandwiched between the Veli lagoon and the Arabian Sea in Thiruvananthapuram, is an ideal place to see the lake meeting the Arabian Sea. During monsoon season, the locals keep a close eye on the water level of the fresh water lake. As the level climbs, they are ready with showels to remove a tiny line of sea-sand that separates the sea from the lagoon away. Rest is taken care of by the huge sea waves and the rising waters of Veli lake. Imbibing in the colourful sunset from the floating restaurant maintained by the State Tourism Department should be the highlight of the trip.
