The backwaters of Kerala are an essential part of the state’s tourism and Valiyaparamba is one such backwater. It is fed by four rivers, the major one being Thejaswini. Valiyaparamba island is the largest among the islands spread across this backwater. It is bordered by the Arabian Sea on one end and covers an area of 16km. The main activities of the island’s inhabitants, which also provide a major source of income, are fishing and agriculture.

This picturesque region can be enjoyed thoroughly on a boat ride along the backwater stretch. The traditional boats called ‘kettuvallam’ are famous among tourists. The boat ride is a very thrilling and refreshing experience. One can see several small islands along the backwaters with a rich plantation of areca nuts and coconut trees. The Thejaswini River contains a footbridge built across the river to connect the small island called Achanthuruthu and Cheruvathur panchayat. The bridge is 400m long and is the longest footbridge in Kerala.
