Kuruva Island


At a distance of 13 km from our homestay, Kuruva Island is also known as Kuruva Dweep. It is a protected river delta in the Wayanad district of Kerala. Kuruva Dweep is being developed as an eco-tourism project and is one of the popular places to visit in Wayanad.

Kuruva Island is a cluster of small islands formed by the delta in the River Kabini and is spread over 950 acres of uninhabited area. These are true natural islands with no other activities. Kuruva Island is densely populated with rich flora and fauna. Rare species of birds, orchids, and herbs are the main attraction of the island apart from its breathtaking natural beauty. Several migratory birds are also seen on the island. The main island contains two small freshwater lakes. Other unique features of these islands are the bridges made of bamboo and rare species of trees. The island is famous for Bird Watching, and Bamboo Rafting.

Anywhere in the area, you may simply take a walk for your pleasure. There are many beautiful homes, exotic plants and flowers, and lush landscapes that will mesmerize anyone. The locals are curious and extremely friendly, many of whom speak enough English to hold pleasant conversations as you trade ideas and cultures with each other.
