Kuruva Island is situated on the tributaries of the river Kabani with serene silence and a wide expanse of the evergreen forest leaves. It is beautiful in its isolation, holding an array of uncommon species of birds, herbs and orchids.
Lying 17 km east of Mananthavady, Kuruva Island is a vast expanse of rich green forests spanning over 950 acres. Far from the turbulence of city life, this island offers a relaxing, exotic holiday. It is closed during the monsoon months of June to September.
