Lakshadweep Island: The untouched beauty of nature

4 years ago

Lakshadweep is a bouquet of coral islands in the Arabian Sea. Its literal meaning is a hundred thousand islands. The golden coast, dense forest of coconut, magical lagoons, and fewer populations, often untouched by tourists are the characteristics of this place. These island groups, famous for tuna fish, are quite different from other resorts because of the tremendous control over tourists’ invasion.

The island of Lakshadweep, which is situated about four hundred kilometres away from Kochi, is a beautiful tourist destination for honeymooners. A permit is required to visit the Lakshadweep islands for all including Indians. Lakshadweep is the only place in the country where tourists can visit the colourful world of Lagoons along with seeing the beauty of the earth. Even if you can’t swim, you can see the unique world underwater. If one can swim, scuba diving can be an adventurous sport for spending some time in the foothills of the ocean, experiencing corals, reefs, turtles, octopuses and other water organisms.


In Lakshadweep, the colorful views of sunrise and sunset can be seen from every island. At the time of sunset, the unique colors of sun rays on the lagoon create a wonderful view.
