One of the most scenic backwater stretch in Kerala, Valiyaparamba is an
ideal picnic spot and a fishing center, at a distance of 4kms from Nileswaram.
The place derived its name from Valiyaparamba Island, the longest in this
region, stretching 24kms from Azhithala to Ezhimala. Tourists can enjoy
the backwater cruise by riding the Kettuvallam (Kerala Houseboats) through
the lush green palm groves and the paddy fields. Scores of little islands,
narrow beaches, thick groves of coconut and areca-nut and four rapidly
flowing rivers make the backwaters a lasting experience. House boat cruises
are organised by Bekal Resorts Development Corporation (BRDC) in the Tejeswini
river from Kottappuram to Kannur. They also arrange bonfire dinners on
nearby islands, canoeing, visits to temples, forts and tribal villages.
