Anchorage lies about two km offshore, where three vessels can work at a time. The port was developed during the 18th century. During the early part of the 20th century, a regular passenger cum cargo steamer service from here to Mumbai was introduced. The vessels from here sailed to Ceylon, Arabia and ports on Indian coast-Mangalore, Malabar and Mumbai. Visitors can see the fishing vessels of all sizes, built completely by hand.
