  • Beautifully adorned with mangroves and a host of feathery plumes. A bird watchers delight. One can surely see a fish leap into the air if you have the patience and even catch a kingfisher dive in for a bite. peaceful ,tranquil and the ferry ride is breathtaking...please do not litter...
  • Very beautiful place. Different types of mangroves trees The way to go there is trough ferry ride which is very beautiful experience. Good for excursion and other environmental study. Different birds are also seen but you require proper observation and Time to see them.
