Munroe Island Canal Cruise & Village Visit
Join me on an exciting journey to Munroe Island, the 'Hidden Venice of India'. Munroe Island is a hidden pearl in the backwaters formed by a cluster of eight tiny islands. This scenic island is surrounded by the Kallada River and Ashtamudi Lake and offers stunning views of the lush green coconut plantation, fewer crowds, and most importantly, peacefulness. The journey begins with a canal cruise through Munroe Island, a unique experience. The canal cruise is one of the most popular things to do on Munroe Island. The canal cruise is a 2.5-hour ride on a canoe (a local country boat) with the boatsman who guides the canoe with his stick. You’ll be sailing through narrow canals that surround themselves with palm and coconut trees. Due to the calm water, you'll be able to see many reflections of nature surrounding you like birds growing around the region, fish and prawn farms, and locals roping coconut coir. Along the way, you'll also see people on Munroe Island going about their daily lives. As you pass through several canals, you'll enter Ashtamudi lake, which opens up a different landscape. The lake is vast and you’ll occasionally encounter other boats. The highlight of the canoe ride is the mangrove plantation you pass through on this lake. While enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, sit back and let the time pass by slowly on this 2.5 hours canoe ride.
