Island Nature / Park
Poovar Island is a relatively small spit of land lapped by serene waters and overgrown with swaying coconut palms, banana groves, exotic flowers, and many species of spices. Listen to the sounds of waves and rare birds chirping, or take a boat ride to Kerala--an ancient martial arts village that will make you feel like you are in an open-air museum. You can also board one of the floating cafes, which offer basic food and provide unparalleled views of the ocean and the lush mangroves.

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

The main accommodations in Thiruvananthapuram proper lie to the north of the main train station. Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range. However, plenty of visitors to Thiruvananthapuram choose to stay closer to the coast instead, arranging day trips to the city itself. Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
