This is a sure bet if you are fond of seeing nature in its true form. You could still see those fallen coconut trees, crystal clear water, and the reef. The sand is fine like powder, a great place to enjoy the beach, swimming and...More

The sand feels like talcum powder at Thinnakara, so soft that we ended up walking around the island without footwear. Its really a luxury tent stay with a green toilet (that's spotlessly clean!) and a cooler and fan for the hot afternoons. The evenings are...More

We transferred to Thinakkara island from Bangaram and thought nothing can top Bangaram. Boy, were we proved wrong. The island is robinson crusoe island and if you're lucky you could be inhabiting this entire island by yourself. This is a tourist island and utterly charming....More
