Nature is beautiful and one can enjoy it in this poovar island with backwaters leading to beach. The area is so good and we can go for boating either early morning or in the evening to completely get immersed in it. Backwaters leading to beach is so good. But Boating cost is way too high and makes it less deserving. If you have seen a mudhaliyarkuppam or a pichavaram boating in tamilnadu or even the aleppey boating is cheaper compared to boating in Poovar and there are several private operators who show fancy pamphlets for the sightseeing but they are all highly overrated. If you are okay to spend money on it, go for it.. else stay in poovar island to enjoy and relax near backwaters. There are many options for the stay and some are decently priced as well.Also, there are so much of plastic and littering everywhere around the backwaters which needs to be taken care and tourists should have some concern over littering as such. Its a habitat for so many birds and other living creatures and we shouldnt spoil the living in the name of tourism.

We visited Poovar island in Nov 2019. It is a nice place which is approximately 20 km from Kovlam and 40 km from Trivandrum. One can reach here in a taxi or public transport. Poovar island is on the bank of neyyar river. The sight of Neyyar river meeting the sea is wonderful. A must visit.
