Ponnumthuruthu Island - Review
Love photography? Want to explore the unexplored? Want to visit a place which is no less than a hidden gem? Well, Ponnumthuruthu Island will satisfy all such craving of yours. The location is great, hence some great pictures. Also, it is little away from the main town, hence a lesser known destination. If you love bird watching, then the island is a good place to do that. There is a temple too. Slides for children, space for couples and peace for singletons, this place has got it all!

Ponnumthuruthu Island, Varkala Reviews
It's a pretty nice island with nature surrounded over. Jelly Fishes are most abundantly seen in the water. The Sky Temple was too religious and very calm place. A place near the island has fish farming constructed. It's worth giving it a shot. #Adventurous
It's a serene and tranquil place. There are temples of Indian God/Goddess. You have to pay Rs 50 per person on island to the person who is taking care of the island. However, the localites who take you on a boat/motorboat to that place doesn't allow you to spend more than 15-30 minutes on the island. You will have to pay then more to spend time on the island. Moreover you will see a different type of fruit on the island, please do not eat it is poisonous and can also kill you.
