The transit to paradise!

Accommodation is not allowed on Agatti unless your flight is cancelled, which is not unheard of. Its beautiful, blue and the admin island for the group of Lakshadweep isles. Govt Offices, Port authorities, airport, maintenance and repair and the suchlike. Usually its what you can see while driving from or to the airport from & to the jetty which will transport you.

A mind blowing experience

Lakshdweep rightly called the emerald of the Arabian sea, is simply awesome and a mind blowing experience to visit. We took the samudram tour and went to three different islands and stayed onboard the ship MV Kavaratti. The entire tour and the experience was simply awesome to say the least. The SPORTS, authority for tourism of Lakshdweep government have excelled in operating this tour. The quality of the ship, the cabins, food and the onshore Tours with various activities have been superb. This is one tour everyone ought to take to visit the isles and do some activities there. A very good experience of the cruise and the onshore activities, SPORTS do easily qualify to compete with any other cruises.
Overall a windblown experience.

I am heading to Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep Overview

Lakshadweep is an archipelago located 200-400 km west of the coast of Kerala in the Arabian Sea. The archipelago consists of 36 main islands, many smaller islands, coral atolls and coral reefs. It is the smallest union territory in India. Lakshadweep means a hundred thousand islands in the local language, Malayalam. Earlier the name Lakshadweepa referred to the three archipelagos in the Indian Ocean the present Lakshadweep, Maldives and Suvadives.   Only ten of the Lakshadweep islands are inhabited and more than 90 percent of the indigenous population is Muslim. The main economic activities are fishing, coconut cultivation and coir twisting. Tourism is an emerging industry. Tourists require an entry permit to visit Lakshadweep; the permit is issued at Kochi (in Kerala). Foreign nationals are allowed only in Kadmat, Bangaram and Agatti islands. Agatti is connected to Kochi by air and sea; in fact Agatti is the gateway to Lakshadweep Islands with the only airport of the archipelago.   Kavaratti, the administrative headquarter is the most developed island. Its attractions include the Ujra mosque, marine aquarium, beaches and water sports. Kalpeni is known for the largest lagoon among Lakshadweep islands; the lagoon is good for kayaking and boating. Minicoy is located in southern Lakshadwep and its culture has affinity to that of Maldives. The language here is Mahl, which is a form of Divehi, the language of Maldives. Kadmat has lagoons both on its western and eastern peripheries. The island boasts of a water sports institute and a diving school. Bangaram is the only uninhabited island open to tourists.
