Good place to have fun

I visited this place recently with my friends. And this place is "just down the kanakadurga temple" and island is located in the river of krishna. This can be reached through paid boats just at a fare of 40/- per each. And the boat ride is super. And we took photos too from the boat. And the ride goes for upto 10min from the bank of krishna to the island. And when reached island it looked so beautiful with beautiful nature. And this also contained awesome food restaurant inside which contained all varieties of food veg and non veg. And this also contained little adventure activities like "rope climbing, rope jumping, high climbing, rubber jumping. And this "place also has good resorts of A/c and non-A/c".

Good Island for relaxation purpose

This island is just "3kms far from the Kanakadurga Temple" and so it is called as "Bhavani Island. "The main attractions here are the "Wood Resorts", "Adventure equipments and park", "Rope sliding from one tree to another", this park is "not well maintained". It is "recommended for the couple" to stay for a day and for the "relaxation purpose it is pleasant island". This island can be reached by "boat ride from the Haritha Resorts" which cover island for once and drop us in island. The price not more just 50/- per each. Overall great experience with boat ride.

Best Island

Bhavani Island is located beside the Kanakadurga Temple and is reachable by the boat ride for a ticket rate of 30/- per. The boat ride lasts for 20 min and it takes a circle to the island and land us to the gate of the island and no fee is there in the island. The main attractions are "Wooden cottages" unlike the city cement building and adventure arrangements like rope climbing, tree squirting, rope sliding between trees, is the highlight of the adventure side and unbreathing. The food rates are also reasonable in the restaurants and taste is also good. It is suggestible to go the island during Summer for better experience with the kids

Really beautiful island

The ride to the island by steamer on Krishna river is really beautiful. The island is not that well maintained, though you have rooms which can be booked via APTDC (cottages and treehouses - the tree houses are not equipped with ACs). There is not much food facilities on the island and the fun activities are also not that greatly maintained, needs a lot of revamp. Good place to relax for a few hours, it closes by 6PM, so beware of the timings when you visit.

Pleasant place to visit

I visited Bhavani Islands with my friends, it is situated in the midst of the River Krishna. We can see the full view of Prakasam Barrage which makes you feel awesome. Retiring rooms are available in the Bhavani Islands to stay there. You can go through the boat from the shore to the islands.

One of the best picnic spots in Andhra Pradesh

Bhavani island located on the river Krishna near Vijayawada. To reach the island, we have to take boat/streamer from Krishna river at Vijayawada to the island. This(boat) is the only mode of transportation to reach island. The island is spread over an area of about nearly 130 acres. This is one of the best picnic spots in Andhra Pradesh. On July 10th, Sunday, my family planned for a Bhavani island tour. The island is very neat and full of greenery. We liked the place very much. In the island, wooden houses are very interesting. It was a great experience of swimming in the island for my family. There is also a rope-way, there. There is a big tower in the island, which is very nice. There are plenty of hotels there, in the island.
