Our next plan was to visit Chettuva Backwater, which is about 8-9 kms away from Chavakkad Beach.
There were buses, taxis and autorikshaws available to take you to Chettuva. As we were waiting for a taxi, an autorikshaw came and we hopped into it.
A good part of Chettuva River meanders through Chettuva village. It is Azhimugham, where the Chettuva River meets the Arabian Sea.
Chettuva Backwater is a great tourist destination of Kerala. It is located in Chettuva village, in Thrissur Dist. Like many other tourists, we too loved to experience a Houseboat cruise in the backwater in Chettuva, enjoying the dense mangrove thickets on the banks, which enhance their beauty.
We were told that those who can have an overnight stay in one of the House Boats will give an unforgettable experience.
The boatman was very helpful and patiently he took us to whole area and explained everything.
When he saw a fisherman catching the lobsters, he reduced the speed of the boat further so that we could see it properly.
There were many people who had come there just to enjoy the backwater cruise and some foreigners who were also keen to stay in the nearby Raja Islands for an ayurvedic massage.
The other major attractions on the river are Chettuva Bungalow, Raja Islands and Chettuva Harbour.
