Take a canoe ride through the mangrove banks of Mida Creek, a large saline lagoon and tidal creek merging with a huge mangrove forest. This UNESCO-listed biosphere reserve provides a safe haven for national waterfowl and a number of migratory species, including large flamingos and crab-plovers, greenshanks and sacred ibises. Spanning 1,600 hectares (3,954 acres), these wetlands feature 11 types of seagrass and 33 seaweed species, as well six varieties of mangrove. Follow the long boardwalk deep into the forest and take a dip in one of the lagoons surrounded by dense vegetation.

The canoe ride was peaceful, learnt a lot from the locals. Saw different types of Crabs and a Frogfish for the first time. Worth the visit and time more »
