This island is the gateway to the Lakshadweep Union Territory through sea and air, as the only airport in Lakshadweep is located in Agatti. Agatti lies to the west of the Kavaratti Island which is the headquarters of the Union Territory with the administrative section located here. HolidayIQ Traveller Mahesh says, "If you are going to Kerala then also include Agatti Island to your travel list. It is a very good location for enjoying holidays. Before going there you have to take entry permit, hence take action well in advance and also take help from tour operators. You can stay there for two to three days with your family and also go to Bagaram Island which is very near from Agatti and takes 2.5 hours by boat."

2. Scuba Dive In Kadmat

With a wide beach, coconut trees and blue green sea, Kadmat is emerging as a popular tourist attraction. The island is famous for its limestones that are widely used for construction work. With rich underwater fauna and flora, Kadmat is popular as one of the most beautiful scuba diving centres in India. The island is also famous for the array of water sports like snorkelling, swimming, kayaking, sailing and boating. HolidayIQ Traveller Sehdev says, "Kadmat is one of the Islands of Lakshwadeep. The water is crystal clear.. you can see the fishes and the sea floor almost 30 feet deep. Best place just to relax. But not a good place to stay for days to gather since the facility for stay is not so amazing. "

3. Try Kitesurfing In Kadmat

The culture of Minicoy Island is somehow different from the cultural traits of other islands of Lakshadweep. The mannerisms and customs of the residents of Minicoy are more similar to the people of Maldives. The main language of the island is Dhivehi and its social structure matches those of matrilineal Muslims, in which a man has to live in his wife or mother’s house. This is the reason that the island is also referred to as the ‘female island.’

It can be an equally frightening and marvellous experience to see millions of colourful crabs crawling around you. HolidayIQ Traveller Devashish says, "Lakshadweep, an archipelago like none other. Beautiful, tranquil and calm turquoise waters. Amazing view of Corals and Scuba diving and snorkelling traverses you to a new world, the amazingly beautiful Aquatic life, all simply mesmerising."

The islands of Cheriyam, Tilakkam and Pitti Inlet are uninhabited. However, the Tip Beach provides opportunities for snorkelling, sea bathing and kayaking. Coral reefs along with the shallow water attract tourists visiting this island of Lakshadweep. The rich cultural heritage of the region has influenced the lives of natives. The contrasting folk dances of Kolkali and Parichakkali in the region are among the major attractions. Moreover, this island is the first in Lakshadweep, where women started going to school. Scuba dive here for the ultimate experience of the reef.
