Located off the coast of the Indian state of Kerala, approximately 400 kilometres away, Lakshadweep is a group of 36 islands, of which only 10 are inhabited. Out of these 36 islands, one, Parali, is lost to sea erosion. These are exclusive coral atolls, with none of them being more than 2 kilometres wide and having fantastic beaches and lagoons. The bluish waters and the white sands with shallow waters make up great beach stations. In the islands of Agatti, Bangaram, and Kadmat, the coconut trees lining up the beaches form a graceful and charming backdrop, enticing a sunbath. Don the scuba gear or the snorkel mask and go for a dive, visiting the ecologically important living corals that hold together these land masses and protect them from sea erosion. Swim with the colourful fishes and other aquatic creatures. Take a cruise of the islands, enjoying the food, views, and local lifestyle in one of the cleanest waters, all packaged to make it a memorable and enjoyable holiday.
Nearby Places to See
One of the most beautiful beaches in all of Lakshadweep can be found on Kadmat Island, which is about 8 kilometres long and less than 1 kilometres wide. The main attractions consist primarily of snorkelling and scuba diving. Coral reefs are ecologically significant because they hold these land masses together. Taking part in some deep-sea fishing is a great way to get some exercise while also relaxing and taking in the sights and sounds of the open ocean.
It is on Agatti Island, one of the Lakshadweep Islands, that you will find the region’s lone airport. There are some stunning beaches on this 7-kilometre-long island. The island is well-known for its abundance of water sports such as sailing on glass-bottom boats, scuba diving, snorkelling, and fishing.
You can stay on the only uninhabited island in Lakshadweep, Bangaram Island. The only people living on this tiny island are tourists and resort employees. Like the other two islands, this one offers a full range of water sports. From Agatti to Bangaram, visitors can take a boat or a helicopter (if one is available).
