Of Beaches & Backwaters – Part II (Poovar)

As promised, the second part from my Kerala vacation is here. I visited Poovar, which is a small estuary island, located about 14-15 kilometers away from Kovalam and 30 kilometers from Trivandrum. You can easily do a day outing if you’re putting up at Kovalam or even stay at Poovar for a day. However, if you’re planning to stay for a couple of days at Poovar, there are quite a few amazing properties to choose from too. Poovar Island Resort and Estuary Island Resort are a couple of good places you could opt to stay at. I would suggest you opt for a floating resort like Poovar Island resort to get the experience of the stay. They also have land cottages. One day at Poovar should be enough to explore the place but you can, obviously, relax for a couple of more days if that is your motive behind the trip.

When you’re in Poovar, you must hire a motor-boat and pilot it through the beautiful mangroove forest. The beauty that nature has bestowed upon us is beyond my imagination at times. While on the boat, you would also spot a lot of beautiful birds.  You must also visit the Golden Sand beach where because of the high tide, you will not be able to swim but the beach is treat to sore eyes. Going there at sunset or sunrise is definitely recommended.

Coming to my look for the the visit, I opted for a slit and pleated orange skirt from my Koovs mini sale haul. The pleated maxi skirts are a must for your wardrobe as they flatter almost all body-type. You can team them up with anything casual or also dress up a tad with some plain shirt and jewellery or a glamorous blouse. I decided to pair the skirt with a polka dot crop shirt, one which I also happened to buy from Koovs long time back. A bucket bag from New Look (which had been my constant companion during the travel), reflectors from Stylefiesta and Fedora Hat (also from New Look) completed my look. A hat is a must for me when I’m vacationing at a tropical land like Kerala. I wore the same gold thongs from Shopnineteen for the outing, which you would have spotted in my earlier pictures too. (wink)

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the post. Do tell me your thoughts on my “Follow me around” posts like these as I’m only striving to get better. The next post will be up tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Until then,

Stay Stylish, Stay Fabulous,

Reitu
