Went for a backwater cruise. It was amazing and worth the cost. The beach is pristine and waters so blue.

Yes a very good place for first timers and honeymooners and people bred in concrete jungles and also for people who want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A must visit place for all you loves travelling & are locatedin Trivandrum. Its a nice get away which is 30km away from trivandrum.

You will find good food in Estuary Island and also food on the floating cafe. You can take a boat ride in the backwater & enjoy the scene. I would suggest to take a ride during the sunset so you can enjoy the view & the cool breeze also.

The access to beach closes by 5pm or until sunset.

The best time to visit is Dec as you can see lots of migrating bird in along the backwater route. Photographer will have an awesome time.

We hired a man and boat from Kingfisher boats. Well worth it. No canopy on the boat so excellent view of the trees, to see eagles, hawks etc, and a black and white spotted kingfisher. Marvellous.
The boat engine was also very much quieter than some other boats. So important, the less noise the more one is likely to see .

Very good backwater trip. Kingfisher bird was the highlight not the beer or Airline. Coconut plantation.
