Have you ever tasted coconut ice cream or coconut-based honey, or even tried a ride on a bull-drawn cart? The newly opened Coconut Cultural Park in Passikudah brings to you all these wonders.
The Coconut Cultural Park is situated just opposite the beautiful Passikudah Beach and stretches over an expanse of more than 238 acres, of which 25 acres have been developed as a tourist zone. Managed by the Coconut Development Board, the friendly staff will demonstrate to you how they grow coconut and how they make varieties of coconut products. You can also learn how to cultivate the fruit and vegetables.
If you are tired of walking around, just get on the bull drawn cart for a relaxed and exciting car ride. To double your excitement, the staff will serve you a fresh papaya or pineapple or coconut water and be sure not to miss having the best ever coconut ice cream! The small souvenir shop offers fabulous handmade coconut products and souvenirs at reasonable prices for you to buy for your loved ones.
The cultural dance show in the evening will make your stay fun and unforgettable.
