Next to the shore line are the "fringing reefs" where fish species of fin and shell fishes spawn, and are found in abundance. As of 1986 there were 45 coral species in the reef. HolidayIQ Traveller Sahdev shares, “Kadmat is one of the Islands of Lakshadweep. 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.”

The Island is located towards the southern tip of the island. One can walk down to the shore from the rooms within a few meters of distance.

Kadmat Overview

Located between the coordinates 11.23°N and 72.78°E, Kadmat is an island, which is a part of the Lakshadweep archipelago in India. The island is 8 km long and 550 metre wide at its broadest point, which makes it one of the largest islands in the Lakshadweep group. The total area covered by the island is 3.12 sq km, which includes shallow lagoons on the west and narrow lagoons on the east.

Kadmat Island is bounded by Amini Island in the south and Chetlat Island in the north. The establishment of organised settlements on the island started in the 19th century. During that time, the land of the island was claimed by Amine landlords and the people of Kadmat were not allowed to build their own sailing vessels. They were forced to ship their own sailing vessels and produce in the Amini vessels.

The people of Kadmat were also not permitted to have a Kazi, who would perform their religious and social functions. It took them over a century to overcome all these social and economic disabilities. Today, the island is inhabited by 5319 people, who are mainly involved in coir twisting. Like other islands in Lakshadweep, Malayalam is the most popular language 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.

Cochin International Airport is the main gateway to the destination, which operates regular flights to Agatti, a part of Lakshadweep Island. In order to reach Kadmat, tourists can also board passenger vessels that ply between Cochin and Lakshadweep. The best time to visit Kadmat is during the winter season, which extends from November through March.
