Lakshadweep, located off the Kerala coast in the Arabian sea, is a cluster of majestic islands. Out of 35 islands, 10 are inhabited and only a few are accessible to tourists. These restrictions have helped preserve the true beauty of this union territory. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Lakshadweep is paradise for beach lovers and offbeat travelers. Its picturesque islands and adventurous water sports fascinates every ardent traveler.
Note: An entry permit issued by Lakshadweep Administration is mandatory to visit the islands. Also, foreign nationals, only with a tourist visa are permitted to Lakshadweep islands.
Lakshadweep can be explored within 7 days. You can start off your trip at Agatti Island and spend a day or two exploring the beaches and markets. You could also go shopping and buy some unique handicrafts. Water Sports are available in nearly every island open for tourism but it's especially famous in Kavaratti, Kadmat and Agatti. You can spend a day in Kavaratti visiting the Ujra Mosque and Marine Museum. Later, you can explore the turquoise lagoons or simply take a peaceful walk on the beaches to rejuvenate and relax.
