The Valiyaparamba backwaters at Kottappuram, a large body of scenic backwaters is fed by four rivers. The backwaters get their name from Valiyaparamba Island, which is about 10 km south of Nileswaram by road. This island separated from the mainland is also a prominent fishing centre.
The four rivers include River Tejaswini and a houseboat cruise through its waters, with views of arecanut groves and coconut palms, is pure delight. You will also be able to see the beaches. One of the beautiful little islands that you encounter on your way is Idayilakkadu. The presence of serpent groves and the presence of monkeys here add to its appeal.
