An ideal backwater location - Muttukadu, Chennai

Muttukadu is a small village located at a distance of around 36 kms from Chennai on the most popular East Coast Road (ECR). It is an ideal backwater location and excellent picnic spot for a lazy weekend for Chennai people. Even travellers from outside Chennai too visit Muttukadu. Muttukadu is the best boating option available in and around Chennai.

The backwaters of Muttukadu have been developed as a picturesque picnic spot and a centre for water sports. Every year a lot of watersports lovers gather at this village in the month of February to watch windsurfing regatta. Some of the attractions that are available here are windsurfing, boating, kayaking and canoeing. Water scooters are a recent attraction. Speed boats have always been favorite for families. TamilNadu Tourism Development Corporation maintains the site and takes care of boat houses.

Muttukadu is well connected by buses from Chennai. You can otherwise reach the place in taxi/your own transport. There are other attractions such MGM Dizzie World, Kovalam Beach, and Dakshin Chitra, which you can visit along with Muttukadu.

Happy Travelling.
