Take A Vacay To This Island Where You Can Go Parasailing, Kayaking & Live In Tree Top Cottages


    Is city life getting to you? Ditch everything and escape to this island 4Kms away from Vijayawada for a thrilling weekend with water sports or for a relaxing stay amidst natural beauty.

    What Makes It Awesome

    Although Bhavani Island has nothing much to see, it’s got tons to do. Considered as one of the largest river islands in India, this is in the centre of Krishna river. So, if boating amidst clear waters, lazying out in hammocks, and fishing is your thing, this might excite you. With a few tourist attractions like a rural museum, Kanaka Durga temple, Undavalli Caves and a larger than life structure (more of a sculpture) encompassing life around a waterbody, this place offers more adventure activities like parasailing, kayak riding, Ringo rides, stand-up pedalling, and zorb ball (apparently, there are more than 17 exciting activities that you can participate in). If you want to stay away from water, try your hand at archery, paintball or go on an off-road adventure in a two-seat buggy, or play cricket with the squad. Makes for a fun-filled picnic, doesn’t it? For some quality time with your special someone too, you can opt to go on a swan boat ride that will slow down time, or take them to a floating restaurant on a fancy cruise that serves multi-cuisine delicacies and drinkies too.

    Sorting your accommodation woes is Haritha Resort, a modern hotel located on the island. Rustic wooden architecture, treetop cottages, spacious rooms as well as a function hall and restaurant are a part of the resort. Equipped with AC, television, and telephone, these rooms are surrounded by impressive exteriors too. There are 28 treetop cottages in all {Just in case you’re looking for a massive party} and they can be availed for just INR 2,000 a night.

    Pro Tip

    Since it only takes five hours to get to Vijayawada by road, we totally recommend a road trip. Book a jeep, or take your own car and with it your entire fam or daredevil gang, and get here for a weekend. You can also take a train, bus or flight to Vijayawada and drive to Bhavani Island in 25 mins from there.
