Poovar is a small coastal village in the Trivandrum district of Kerala state, South India. This village is almost at the southern tip of Trivandrum and there is only one last village. Pozhiyoor which mark the end of kerala. This village has a beautiful beach and backwater which attracts tourists. There are also some good tourist resorts. Unspoiled and amazingly unexplored.

This cruise is a must for any tourist visiting Kerala. It is really a God's gift. It is so natural and cruising through mangrove and then reaching the beach dividing the sea and river is an out of the World experience. Rates are negotiable.
