Bhavani Island

Last week end I was busy spending time with my family for three straight days.We went to Vijayawada, my in laws place and had a great fun.This is the first time I visited Kanaka Durga temple on Indra keeladri.On our return from temple I planned to visit Bhavani Island, a wonderful lush,scenic estuary island in River Krishna .Being one of the largest islands on river it extends more than 130 acres near to the Prakasam Barrage.

A marvelous picnic spot, Bhavani Island has nicely maintained facilities for enjoying amazing boat riding in Krishna River. Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation makes very good arrangements of boats for boating and is available from the place known as Durga ghat. 4 tree houses are also available to stay.It has a park with rope bridges etc, where it's fun for people of all ages to monkey around ;) Even otherwise, it's really peaceful to walk around early in the morning. A pleasant walk down the barrage with the gentle breeze on your face and a beautiful view of the shimmering lake can be a great way to spend your evening. 

In my opinion one of the most awesome places to go for holidays. Who does not wants to go to a beautiful island with a gorgeous environment situated in the Krishna River?
