Roam around India’s own tropical gem, Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep offers the best of both worlds: your peaceful, nature-loving side as well as your adventurous soul.

In Malayalam, the term Lakshadweep means “a hundred thousand islands.” The region is rich with spectacular beautiful vistas, the greatest of the quiet beaches from across the world. The corals of Lakshadweep are the major attractions, and they will make you appreciate marine life even more than you probably already do. There are lots of activities for the adventurous, from scuba and snorkeling to kayaking, parasailing, and fishing. One thing to keep in mind is that a permit is required to visit this island.

Agatti Island: The highlight is the crystal blue lagoons, friendly people, and excellent seafood. However, obtaining a permit is a monumental undertaking. To apply for permission, you’ll need a police verification certificate, which might be difficult to obtain depending on the state you live in, and then you’ll need to apply for a municipal permit. Make a plan ahead of time.

Bangaram Island: Bangaram is a teeny-tiny teardrop-shaped island located near Agatti and Kavaratti. A speed boat can take you there in less than 20 minutes from Agatti Island. Phosphorescent plankton washing ashore on the coral sands throughout the night gives the beach a lovely bluish hue. Its allure stems from the fact that it is Lakshadweep’s lone deserted island.

Kadmat Island: Kadmat Island, also known as Cardamom Island, is a small island off the coast of India. Agatti’s airport is roughly 77 kilometers away. You may go to the beach, go snorkeling, or go scuba diving. All of the regular water activities are offered as well. The Kadmat Island Beach Resort is the only place to stay and offers breathtaking dawn and sunset views.

Kalpeni Island: When compared to the other Lakshadweep islands, this one has the biggest lagoon. The Sait Moinuddin Mosque is another tourist destination. The Koomel Beach Resort, which is run by Lakshadweep tourism, is the only location to stay.

Kavaratti Island: It is Lakshadweep’s capital and by far the most developed city. On this island, in addition to wildlife, you may visit aquariums and museums. Here, you may quench your need for adventure by participating in a variety of sports activities. The Urja mosque, built by Sheik Mohammad Kasim, is another popular tourist attraction in Kavaratti. The beach resort on Kavaratti Island offers a pleasant stay.

Minicoy Island: Minicoy Island is a prominent tourist destination that is surrounded by natural beauty and pure water. Minicoy Island is Lakshadweep’s second-largest island. It’s a romantic retreat famed for its high-end beach resorts. The main activities are tuna canning and tuna fishing.
