If you like to explore the hidden beauty of Kerala Backwaters, then you should visit the Paravur Backwaters. The waterbody is relatively cleaner than many others in the state and provides a safer & sheltered paddling environment. The Paravur Backwaters is free from motorboats and other commericial houseboat operators. The waterbody is also easy for beginners since effects of tidal changes are not much influenced due to the spillway shutter system that controls the freshwater discharge into sea during low tide and sea water ingress during high tide.
A trip on the Paravur Backwaters will give you the opportunity to explore the marine life, mangrove forests, islands, indigenous sustainable fishing methods, temple island, sandbar, etc.
Choose a short trip or a long trip to explore the backwaters in the morning or evening.
