Wellington Island is one of the regions that comes under the city of Kochi. Today, the island stands on the part that was reclaimed from the lake of Kochi. A lot of effort went into creating this island since the lake required filling up with dredged soil. This island holds a lot of significance for the city of Kochi since it is the main site for the Port of Kochi. The Kochi Naval Base of the Indian Navy also owns a significant part of the Wellington Island.
