Lakshadweep Tour in India – The Makings of A Dream

India, the magical land. The land that brims with natural beauty and cultural delights. A land that lives up to its tag of Incredible India is an inexhaustible treasure chest of experiences. From the well-known icons like Taj Mahal to the remote and pristine interiors of Arunachal Pradesh the country is full of wonders. For those who love the water and beaches India has a long coastline and has the gorgeous beaches of Goa apart from others to offer. But India has many lesser known and pristine places that beckon the traveler who yearns for untouched destinations. One such place is the Lakshadweep Islands, a place that conjures up images of long stretches of spotless beaches, exotic islands, and turquoise waters, a place that looks like paradise on earth.

Lakshadweep is a place that we have been wanting to explore for some time now and we hope to set sail to the exotic islands soon. But what is it about Lakshadweep that appeals so much to us and why do we have it in our bucket list.

Why Lakshadweep Is On Our Bucket List

Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep is an exotic group of coral reefs and 36 atolls in the Laccadive sea located at a distance of about 385 km from the shores of Kerala. Lakshadweep is the smallest of the Union Territories of India. What makes Lakshadweep really inviting is the fact that it is quite remote and untouched, its islands are inhabited by aboriginal inhabitants with settlements dating back to 1500 BC. The geographical location of Lakshadweep has ensured that it retains its pristine and untouched quality. The communication networks and new technology too are impacting the islands only in recent times. In fact only this year Airtel has become the first mobile operator to launch 4G services that will enable high-speed data services in the islands of Kavaratti, Bangaram, and Agatti of Lakshadweep. Travelers to Lakshadweep can now share the beauty of Lakshadweep live with their friends and family through the high internet speed of one of India’s best networks.

Places To See In Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep is an exotic collection of islands, however, not all of the islands are accessible to the public and only a few can be visited. Here are the must-see islands of Lakshadweep.

Agatti

If you are flying to Lakshadweep, Agatti is the island that you will be landing in. The slim airstrip in the midst of blue seas is a spectacular sight from the skies. Agatti is the only airport in Lakshadweep and has flights coming in from Kochi. The most enchanting and surreal lagoon is to be found in the island of Agatti.

Bangaram

Bangaram is a secluded and exclusive island that uninhabited. It lies in a lagoon with two smaller islands Tinnakara and Parali. The place is known for its untouched beaches and the presence of phosphorescent plankton which gives a surreal aura to the nights on the island.

Kavaratti

The place provides an opportunity for immersive experiences in the quaint culture and local life of the region. The island is dotted with many enchanting mosques and is also an epicenter of water sports activities in the region like snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and windsurfing.

Kalpeni

Kalpeni is an island that is known for a vast deposit of corals on its shores. It is believed that this is part of the debris of a massive storm that occurred in the region in the nineteenth century. The island is another idyllic location to indulge in water sports like Kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling.

Kadmath

This is another breathtakingly spectacular island of Lakshadweep. It is considered to be one of the best places for diving in India. There is a scuba diving center in Kadmath and it is a favorite haunt of divers who want to experience the exotic underwater life in clear waters. Vast stretches of white beaches and sandbanks make the island the perfect getaway.

Minicoy

This is an island which is quite remote from the other islands of Lakshadweep. Its culture too is unique and different from the others. It consists of eleven villages,  each of which are headed by an elected representative called Bodukaka. Minicoy is another of the islands which provides a fascinating insight into the rich traditions and culture of the region. A lighthouse built in the late nineteenth century stands tall in the island rendering it with a romantic aura.

Lakshadweep is like a dream sprung to life and a paradise for those seeking to experience untouched nature to the full.

How To Get To Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep can be reached either by air or by the sea.

Flights operate from Kochi to Agatti island and back. Kochi is of course connected with major Indian and international airports. Boat services link Agatti to the other islands of Lakshadweep. Helicopter services are available from Agatti to Kavaratti depending on the season.

For those who fancy cruises the sea passage provides an excellent means to reach Lakshadweep. There are seven passenger ships that sail from Kochi to Lakshadweep. The sea journey takes about 14-18 hours. The ships that sail to Lakshadweep are MV Arabian Sea, MV Kavaratti, MV Lakshadweep, MV Lagoon, MV Minicoy, MV Corals, and MV Amindivi. These ships have different accommodation options that include Air Conditioned First Class, Air Conditioned Second Class, Air Conditioned Seating, etc.. All inclusive cruise packages are also available on these ships.

Lakshadweep is one of those destinations that still retains its earthy and raw purity. It is a place that one needs to visit before it is overrun by travelers. We too hope to set foot on these exotic islands, a gem that lies in the seas south of India at the earliest, before it loses its lustre as many other destinations have.

India offers diverse experiences to the traveler and one of the most exotic experiences has to be the Lakshadweep tour which takes you to some of the most beautiful islands.

  1. My grandfather has been to lakhshadeep last year. And he said that the place is truely worth visiting but it would be really good if 4g services are enabled there!

  2. My parents have been to this place and they loved it. More efforts are needed to be done to mainstreaming this place. thanks for the beautiful pictures and travelog.

  3. Lakshwadeep is gorgeous.Just wish there was good mobile connectivity .Travelling means disconnecting but with an option to connect if needed

  4. We love travelling as well… I recollect going to Goa last year and returning back was a herculean task as we had chosen to self drive for two days. The network was patchy and we took over an hour to reach our resort. Travelling without Google Maps and good connectivity has become almost impossible.

  5. Lakshwadeep is one place in India which is in on my bucket list.. 4G services here will surely help the locals and also travellers like you guys and myself.

  6. Lakshadweep is beautiful and definitely on my list. It’s great to know that Airtel has launched 4G mobile services there. So you can stay connected without drop.
