Poovar can only be reached by water and is perfect for couples looking for absolute solitude with abundant well-preserved flora and fauna.

Apart from all the natural blessings that Poovar has, it was once a bustling trading centre for spices, ivory, timber and sandalwood.'Poovar' was once called Pokkumoosapuram. The town gets the name 'Poovar' because in the spring season flowers bloom on both sides of the river Neyyar and when these flowers fall into the river Neyyar, it makes the river more attractive.
One factor which separates Poovar from other places is that it has the blessing of the estuary which is among the natural wonders where lake, sea, river and beach meet the land.
