We were always looking for a getaway somewhere in Tamil Nadu. We also wanted to do something different and also de stress ourselves. So myself and my friend came to know about 'Cabana Coral Reef'. We started from Chennai on 15th March, boarded the bus at 10PM and reached Ramnad at 5.30AM on 16th March. From Ramnad we had to take another bus to reach Mandapam. Mandapam is the place where the beach resort 'Cabana Coral Reef' is located. This place offers kayaking, snorkeling, boating, bicycle for rent and various activities. We planned to stay there for one day and try snorkeling and kayaking. The food thar was served was lip smacking and tasty. We had a guide named Mr. Jensun who was friendly and took us for kayaking and snorkeling. The coral reef was not colorful. But all those different colored fishes in the sea made it totally worthy. The puffer fish, star fishes and other types of marine creatures under the sea takes us to a whole new level. Gives us a different level of satisfaction. After that we snorkeled upto the Pamban bridge which was memerizing at dusk. And we kayaked back to the resort seeing the sunset which gave us a whole new experiance. It was truly an amazing experiance indeed.
