Amini Overview

Amini is one of the first discovered islands of the Lakshadweep. The island is just 3 km long and 1.6 km wide and is situated in the middle of the west coast. The island was a colony of the Portuguese in the days of yore and was also ruled by the British.

Along with historical significance, the Amini Island is also associated with a religious legend. It is the dwelling place of Saint Ubaidullah, who preached Islam from the Amini Island of Lakshadweep. This attracted visitors from far off places to inhabit on the shores in a quest to gain spiritual knowledge.

Endowed with the bounty of nature, this inhabited island of Lakshadweep is flocked by numerous tourists round the year. A blend of scenic sights, rich cultural traditions and modern infrastructure draws the attention of travellers. The sandy beaches, turquoise water of the Arabian Sea and pleasant climatic conditions make Amini one of the popular destinations of Lakshadweep.
