#8 of 8 in Nature in Kochi (Cochin)
The Gundu Island is one of the many islands that make up the city of Kochi, Kerala, India. The November 1967 amalgamation order of the Kerala Legislative Assembly declared Gundu Island as part of Kochi. Gundu is the smallest island around Kochi with an area of 5acre completely surrounded by coconut trees. The island can be reached from Vypin island only by boat.
The cool breeze and the calm atmosphere of the island attract a lot of visitors.
The only building on the island belongs to a privately owned coir factory that produces ropes and carpets with handmade looms.

  • Good place to visit. Roads are narrow. Not a tourist place...
  • Spread across an area of 5 acres, this is the smallest island around Cochin. The only building here is a Coir Factory run by a co-operative society. Here can be observed the process of manufacturing Coir from coconut fibre, with weavers making colourfully designed doormats and floor coverings
