Crashing Waves, Coral Reefs And Vacation Time At Aqua Outback


    Dive deep and reconnect with nature, or sign up for adventure sports at Aqua Outback in Tuticorin, where gorgeous waves, coral reefs and lush mangrove forests await you.

    Pearl Port

    Off the beaten track, Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu has never been on anyone’s list of favourite beach destinations, though a stay at Aqua Outback will change that. An old port town, Tuticorin gained fame centuries ago as the ‘Pearl City’ because of its thriving economy that depended on pearl fishing.

    Today, it has transformed into a modern town, but its rich history {it has been ruled by the Cholas, the Vijayanagar Empire, the Portuguese and many others in the past} remains intact. And all of it is worth exploring from your base at Aqua Outback.

    Calling All Adventurists

    Considering you just arrived at the beach, drop your bags at Aqua Outback and head out. Pick and choose from many water-based activities and spread them out over your vacation days. If you’ve ever fancied fishing, get a nice and early start to the day so you can try and catch ’em all. We suggest a day for snorkelling – bump into a few jelly fish, marvel at the coral reefs and swim through a school of fish.

    Make sure you don’t fall off the workout wagon while on vacay and come on down for Aqua Outback’s boot camp. The workouts will take your breath away, but the the views will make up for the sweat sesh.

    One Holiday Suits All

    If you like your escape to be relaxing, serene, and lazy, Aqua Outback is ideal. There’s a deck from where you can gaze at the sea; beer in hand. Or you can check into The AquaSpa for a full-body massage and treatments that harness the goodness of sea salts and natural minerals.

    You can also skip into town to gaze at Tuticorin’s historical sites, including the Our Lady of Snow Basilica, built in the 16th century. On the way back, dive into the local bakeries to gorge on Tuticorin’s signature macarons and cakes.


    Aqua Outback is a lone shack that stands right on the Coromandel Coast and the rooms are limited {just four}, so block your dates as soon as possible.
