While returning from Kanyakumari, we stopped for spectacular Poovar Island. It was not included in our checklist but on our guide’s suggestion we went for it. Had we not been there, we would have missed the jewel in the crown. If you are a camera lover this place is meant for you. I bet your camera would not sit idle for a single moment. You are bound to get mesmerized by its flora and fauna. Even Kingfishers had got freedom from bottles and were busy satiating their own thirst. The sound of rowing boat and intermittent birdsong were adding music to the tranquility of the place. Golden beach is one of the highlights of this place. This beach is privileged to embrace Arabian Sea with one arm and Neyyar river with other.
