beautiful experience in the backwaters. Dont miss this experience of watching the birds in the serene neyyar river. The cruise itself is 1.5 hours long, and a bit expensive, but worth the expereince of a ride through the marshes, mangroves and river.

Poovar backwater boating is a must have experience. From a basic 1 hour round trip to 2 hour plus trip that covers floating restaurant and golden sand beach, the experience is memorable. Motor boats offer a capacity up to 7 PAX including the driver. Slow speed boats generally ply on the Poovar waters. Ride through the mangrove forests could get one close with a variety of birds. The water from the Neyyar river is clean. Snacks and tea could be had from the floating restaurants, though the boat would have their favorite place. Lunch can be ordered and the boat would take you to the restaurant on the way back. If you would like to spend more time at the beach, prefer to have an afternoon trip. Generally the rates are fixed but be aware of those who charge more.

Choose any of the boating companies and do a 1-2 hr boat ride. Take the evening ride so as to be on golden sands beach for sunset. The beach is amazing. One side is the river and the other side sea. It is v rough and u can't enter the water. If u have done mangrove boad cruise earlier at similar places, 1 hr to beach and back is good enough. We took the 2 hr ride for 2000/- from a boat company adjoining Geetu International hotel. Boat man spoke good English and was very friendly.

Overall it was good. The entrance to the place was bad. About 15 minutes of the cruise was smelly and slow because there wasn't must water, but after that it was beautiful. Poovar Beach is very tiny but it is amazing to see the location where Neyyar River joins with the Arabian Sea.

We took an early morning boat cruise from Club Mahindra and it was a beautiful and a tranquil experience to silently row through the calm waters of Neyyatinkara. The ideal time would be to go early in the morning to witness the water come alive with aquatic birds and plants. Do look out for bald eagle and other beautiful water creatures if you are keen on bird photography.

There is plenty of thick vegetation surrounding the river and at times, it would appear like you are entering into a dark forest deep inside the river. An amazing and wonderful experience that everyone must go through when in Poovar island. The boating ends near the golden beach of Poovar.

P.S. Do bring a good DSLR or mobile camera to take some picturesque shots. One boat ride would cost around Rs 1200-1500 and is usually lasts an hour.
