2. Experience Houseboats: There are a few house boat companies operating out of Kodi Bengre. Last year I had a breakfast ride with Panchajanya Cruise. Detailed experience here. Tirumala Cruise is another operator

3. Visit Temples: Multiple small but beautiful temples have come up in the area. If interested you can visit them.

4. Ferry ride to Hangarakatte: There is a commuter ferry to Hangarakatte. If interested you can enjoy a ride across the backwater to Hangarakatte, which is a mini fishing and ship building hub and closer to NH66

5. Enjoy a Scenic drive: The drive between Hoode Beach and Kodi Bengre delta is nice, with coconut trees on both sides, ocean or rivers visible at regular intervals. Be careful as the road is narrow.

6. Go to Thonse Health Center: Thonse Health center in Kodi Bengre provides ayurvedic therapy and massages. You may plan a stay for a few nights there or check if they have any walk in services

7. Visit Hoode beach: Hoode beach is a normal beach located closer to the mainland, just where we turn right to go to Kodi Bengre Delta beach. Nothing exceptional here, but you can pause and take a look.

8. Walk on the Suspension Bridge: Kemmannu has a suspension bridge. You can walk across the bridge and explore the island (Beware of private properties there). Access road is a bit narrow for the last 1 km hence be careful if going in a car, SUV or bigger vehicles.

9. Indulge in Kayaking Adventure:  One entrepreneurial youth is operating a Kayaking service near Kemmannu Suspension Bridge. Read a detailed report here.
