Kuruva Dweep or Kuruva Island (popular name) is situated in Kerala, India
Dweep means an island; it is a group of 7 islands on the tributaries of Kabini River flowing into the forests. It makes an ideal picnic spot with trees, animals, birds and exotic orchids and herbs. From the mainland, a ferryboat will transport to one of the islands, and from the other side of this island a bamboo raft facility is provided to go to another island. Standing on the raft and drifting on the river is very adventurous and exciting. At some places the river is shallow and runs between rocks and creeks with beautifully shaped driftwood jutting out to make their presence felt. One can just sit on these rocks forever in the shade of huge trees with the water lapping the feet gently or one can hop from rock to rock and explore the other islands.
Kuruva Island is situated 17kms East of Mananthavady and 44kms from Kalpetta on 950 acress of uninhabited evergreen forests.
