Poovar is a popular tourist town in the Trivandrum district of Kerala state, South India. This village is almost at the southern tip of Trivandrum while the next village, Pozhiyoor, marks the end of Kerala. This village has a beautiful beach which attracts tourists.
 
1-2 hours boat ride (Approx 2 - 2.5K INR per boat) at this river which goes via Mangroves, which they all similar to Amazon forest where Anaconda (film) was filmed.
