Boating by the mangroves is attraction in poovar. Poovar beach is very rough and not advisable for playing. You can get unique experience by dining in floating restaurants in back water.

Your car/ taxi will drop you to one of the service providers for the backwater boat cruise, during which you will be taken through lush green backwaters and narrow creeks, which are picturesque and lively with many...

Poovar Island is a must visit in Kerala, you get motor boats who take you around mangrove and coconut Islands. Motor boat prices depends upon the hours and the number of people. one and Half hour is sufficient to see both the islands including the lunch/snacks on the floating restaurants. We spotted two different types of Kingfishers.
