Poovar Island, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.
