Nileswaram is not quite a tourist hub, but its delightful backwaters, meandering rivers and tranquil beaches draw visitors. A quiet, peaceful little town, it is also known for some unique attractions, such as the forest that has been created out of nothing, and the family that holds sway over an entire village. Situated 40 km south of Kasaragod town in Hosdurg taluk, this town is very close to the Nileswar River. The bridge across the river roughly marks its northern boundary, and is followed by the town centre with a bus depot, auto stand, and a cluster of shops and hotels.

Delightful Backwaters:

Roads lead westwards into a delightful stretch of backwaters. Just 2 km west is Kottapuram on the banks of the rivet-. The rivers, Tejaswini and Nileswar, meet a short distance away before spilling jointly into the sea at Taikadappuram. Ferry boats run at regular intervals from Kottapuram, providing basic transport to the numerous jetties on either side of the banks as bridges are few and far between. One of them, a long slender wooden structure, barely a couple of feet wide, connects Kottapuram to Achan Thuruthu, an islet across the river that houses 35 families amid dense green groves of palms and tropical foliage.

Alluring Beaches:

The nearest beach is at Thaikandapuram, 5 km away. A small fishing harbour is located here, close to the estuary.Another beach at the mouth of the estuary at Azhithala is also worth a visit. Haves lashing the shore at high tide carve out large sections of the beach, literally altering its topography overnight.
