This island is situated 5 km from Oyster Opera. A long time before a couple of monkeys migrated here and since then they were being treated as kings and gods by the islanders. There is a small Temple inside the jungle. Now 200 of them live in a small jungle and are being fed by one family daily. They believe their prosperity lies on the blessings of these monkeys.

This is an island situated about 4 km from Oyster Opera. This island plays an important role in the eco-system by sustaining and balancing the water bodies of our backwaters. They do this through mainly by the abundant mangroves living there. They grow with their roots on top of the water. This is the breeding place of fishes.
It is spread over 30km long in backwater and engaged about 6000 farmers. In the year 2008-09 the total production was 20000 tonnes. Collection of clam and Oyster are worth watching.
This man made estuary has a story to tell. The islanders themselves created the estuary to flush out the excess water to the sea from their fields being flooded by monsoon. But they didn't know that the high tide would push the water back many fold and take away their paddy fields .
This is a very pretty and unexploited beach 14 km away from the resort. The width of this island is only 40mtr, one side ocean and the other side backwater. We also make arrangements for camping at this beach. The beach is almost vacant all the time as no one lives nearby and is free of tourists as this beach hasn't yet come to the tourist map.
