  • About our Motel, we have booked this tour with a fisherman. Until it passed through the Dutch Canal, many fishing boats. The lagoons were beautiful to see, we stopped in the water, and while we stomp through the shallow water, our fisherman prepared fresh fruit and coconuts. Great experience. Unfortunately much cleaner, but somehow you would expect here not different

  • Extraordinary visit of this lagoon. Travel in the middle of the fishing vessels for start then departure for the mangrove Islands. Unfortunately the banks are more than polluted by waste plastic of all kinds. Unfortunately we here become aware of the ecological disaster. Still, it was a wonderful time. More ride of 1:30. Count 6000 rupees for the boat rental.
