Neendakara is a suburb of Kollam city in Kerala, India. The twin harbours, Neendakara and Shakthikulangara are located here. Neendakara harbour is the largest fishing harbour in the state. Trawling ban and withdrawal of the state official start from Neendakara harbour. It is about 10km away from the city center.
When Portuguese traders settled in Kollam (then Quilon) in the early 16th century, their ships passed through the Neenadakara bar, now the site of Neendakara Bridge, part of National Highway 66, which connects the village to Sakthikulangara across Ashtamudi Lake.
