Poovar is a tourist town in the Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala state, South India. This village is almost at the southern tip of Thiruvananthapuram while the next village, Pozhiyoor, marks the end of Kerala. This village beach attracts tourists.
The most beguiling Poovar Island in Kerala or the God's own country, is the abode of natural beauty. Known for its pristine charm, the island is flocked by peace-lovers. Also known as a fishing village, the tranquil island lies between the Arabian Sea and the Neyyar River. The point where the sea, river and the land meets is a rare find in Kerala and is a natural wonder.
Flanked by the Arabian Sea, Neyyar River and Kerala backwaters, you will find swaying coconut trees, banana vegetation, and a lot of other examples of flora and fauna. The island has golden coloured sand and the bewitching sunset gives a perfect background for a romantic date. Since the water is not suitable for swimming, there are no beach activities here. However a cruise to neighboring village amid the clear blue water is possible and could be an unforgettable experience. Poovar is mainly inhabited by the fishing community and it is an ideal getaway to explore the intriguing culture and traditions of the locals. An estuary located adjacent to the Poovar Island is an admiring natural wonder with only the sounds of birds chirping and waves roaring.
