Nindakara (Neendakara) is an open roadstead port at the entrance to Ashtamudi Backwaters.
At the entrance of that fishing port, two breakwaters shelter a shallow basin, with jetties on its N side where barges load ilmenite sand.
The entrance can be identified from seaward by a break in the palms fringing the shore, and by a bridge, which is prominent, spanning the outlet.
The port is seasonal, operating from mid-November to mid-April.
Pilotage is not available.
Storm signals are displayed; the Brief System is used.
The port can be contacted from 0800 to 2200, only when a vessel is loading, as follows:
