The Beaches of Lakshadweep

Plan Your Tour
By Mukti Sharma

Beaches, the Sun Dunes and the Deserts – if you were asked to make a choice in between the three, which one you would pick up. In any case if you love the beach, the first one would be your choice. And more so, if you have seen the Movie – The Beach – then the Lakshadweep Islands would be your ultimate choice. These beaches which line in the reins of the Coral Reefs – the worlds oldest living organisms – present the most unforgettable experience of lifetime.

This is one of the places in India which gives you a feel of Queensland Island of Australia. With colors of green and blue in the waters and creamy white beaches it is the most spectacular things you will see. Though the crowd is a bit large here, the wee hours still give some light moments. With 12 atolls, 3 reefs and 5 submerged banks, the Lakshadweep Group of Islands covers in total of 36 Islands covering an area of 32 sq. kms.

Look at it once again, the crystal clear water, the underwater sea life, the coral reefs and the azure blue sky. Does that sound interesting. If this doesn't then lets go a little further in the middle of the sea – there are very likely chances that you might find a dolphin or two playing in the sea ground. Standing in silence, in the middle of the sea, chaste stillness and no seemingly boundaries – thats the best nature can give to you. Its the best here as even the neighbouring countries like Bhutan and Nepal can't give you something like this.

Unlike the Kovalam and Colva Beaches of Kerala and Goa, the beaches of Lakshadweep are not hindered by the lives of human beings. To say the human interference is the least here. Kept and maintained with the warmth of the Nature, a lot of care has been taken to see the beaches are in their natural forms. The people visiting these beaches are to adhere to the rules and regulations of the Tourism Authorities. The whole idea is to keep the place clean. Moreover there are only Ten Beaches which are open – Agatti, Amini, Andrott, Bitra, Chetlat, Kadmat, Kalpeni, Kavaratti, Kiltan and Minicoy.

Expansion and modernization doesn't seem to effect the clarity of the sea, its beaches and its surroundings. With all the harmony between the nature and the scientific development, the beaches of Lakshadweep give you the best experience of all.

There are two options – either you can lazily lie down the sand beaches or you can take a dip in the sea waters and forget the rest. For those love to lie under the sea – there are a number of sea side stalls furnished with all the goodies to serve the tourists. Other can enjoy the water sports like rafting, snorkeling, para - sailing, para - jumping and sports like that. Other activities which are very popular in Lakshadweep Islands are Swimming Classes, Underwater Swimming Classes, kayaks, sail boating and Tuna Fishing.

There are direct flights from Major Indian Cities which touch the Lakshadweep mainland. There are direct Trains too to reach the Lakshadweep Group of Islands. While Islands like Agatti and Bangaram can be reached by air , the other Lakshadweep Islands can be reached by Ship from Kochi. One of the best ways to reach Lakshadweep Islands is from Cochin – either by road, rail or air.

However it needs to be noticed that out of the 27 Beaches Lakshadweep has only 10 Beaches are open for the Tourists. The rest of the 17 beaches are totally inhabited and are closed for the public. Kavaratti, Kalpeni, Minicoy, Kadmat, Agatti and Bangaram are the most sought after beaches of Lakshadweep. Seeing the number of Islands which are open in Lakshadweep and the un-certainty of which one may be closed in a particular time, one needs to check the beach he/she is going to visit with his travel agent. The Peak time too has to be considered.
