Situated at the southern tip of Ashtamudi Lake, Sambranikodi is a picturesque island that invites you to experience the virgin beauty of God’s Own Country. The District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC), Kollam, offers boating facilities here.
It is believed that during ancient times, small ships from China anchored along this coast. Local people referred to these ships as 'chambrani' and later the place came to be known as Sambranikodi.
