Munroe Island, Kollam

4.0
#1 of 8 in Parks in Kollam
Enjoy lush greenery and tranquility of Munroe Island, an archipelago of eight islands at the confluence of the Ashtamudi Lake and the Kallada River. Named by a British colonel who abolished slavery on the island in 1835 and built canals, the island makes a great retreat for nature lovers with its combination of waterways and diverse vegetation. Watch fishermen push their long traditional boats and see women make ropes from coconut fiber. The island makes a good spot for bird watching with many migratory birds. Take a boat tour and watch mangrove plants and coconut trees from the water. To visit Munroe Island on your trip to Kollam, use our Kollam vacation planning website .

  • We did this tour, recommended by Lonely Planet. The price is really cheap, 600rp per person. The drive lasts 1 hour to go, Ditto to return, on site we were ds a boat very basic wooden with a helmsman and a guide who preferred to sleep on the bench and be on his cell phone. 2 hours is a little monotonous, not much to see. We're staying on our hunger...

Since the guide of undisturbed nature than polite descriptions hush, quiet sajeev and sannidhi family is recommended. Us designated it please. January dry season because what mosquito is also not particularly warm and comfortable. Tropical flowers did, of course, beef, duck and squirrel, egrets and eagles. Where the narrow river and shrimp farms and roadside life and mangrove River a little wider nature, such as street and finally came to a wide sea of while watching the sunset Lake.
