Chunnambar Boat House
Reviewed 19 August 2014

you have to go there to take boat to paradise beach. the boat house has nothing to boast about. there is a cafe but we did not visit it as when we reached there we were in a hurry to take a boat to the beach and while coming back, were too tired to take a look.
boats are available at a reasonable price. it takes 10 minutes or so to reach the beach. they provide you with life jackets in the boat. but they are really old and worn . they dont have proper size life jacket for 4 year old kids!!! but its a small ride so we were not bothered.
boats are available at regular interval. so you dont have to wait for long to get a boat to and from the beach.

This is a ploy by the PTDC to extort money from gullible tourists. Paradise Island is a must visit but not at the expense of Rs.150/pax. We were in a group and ended up paying a large sum of money for a long wait in the queue and a large boat ride.

The alternative, which no one tells you is that there's a road which would take you to near the LePondy resort and then you can just park and walk to the beach. Also if you're using the boat ride they make you leave early and the make you wait in a long queue for an hour to get back.

Don't use this service.

They are the only ones to take you from Paradise beach to Paradise Island so they charge 150/- per head for slow ferries, 1200/- for 4-seater speed boat and 1600/- for 6-seater speed boat. Rides are all covered so you don't have to worry about scorching sun. They operate till 5 pm towards island after that you have to return back.

Indian tourism just reflects the state of our government.This place could have earned more revenue if proper marketing - canoeing rafting - were there.
