Kavvayi Stories

Located on the coconut island of Kavvayi, this island eco-campsite is high on experiential tourism. Here you get to stay (one night only) on small adventure camps with sleeping bags offering a true human powered camping experience.

Kavvayi itself, is a small group of islands in the Kannur district of Kerala. The Kavvayi river makes for the most spectacular kayaking experience, through the Kavvayi backwaters replete with mangroves and all the wildlife associated with it. The waters are shallow and the mangroves are spread across the riverbed.

This is one of Kerala's most scenic spots, and the fragile ecosystem of the mangroves makes it a conserved area. The campsite offers kayaking trips twice a day, with other activities such as live barbecues and music. Don't miss the night kayaking experience and the bio-luminance, much like the Life of Pi. Of special mention is the laterite hill trek, which conceals patches of biodiversity rich small groves.


Your visit to this place is sure to create a positive impact on the environment as your entire stay is responsibly managed by Kavvayi Stories.

Located in Kannur Kavvayi Island.

I spent a day with my friends here. It's a small island. Hosts are warm. Lunch was cool. Amenities are basic. Kayaking was real cool. The beach is fantastic.

The kayaking experience was really good. The homely meal that was offered was a delight.
Had a good time and felt like we owned the island.
