LAKSHADWEEP ISLAND HONEYMOON TOUR

Highlights : Lakshadweep, a Union Territory of India, is a group of 36 coral islands located in the Arabian Sea, about 300 km off Kerala. Ten of the islands are inhabited by simple, peace-loving folk whose language is close to that spoken in Kerala. The islanders have lifestyles and occupations that revolve around coconut, cultivation, coir matting and fishing.

Even today, nothing is actually produced in the islands themselves, and everything comes from the 'mainland', as India is somewhat quaintly referred to there. Tourism's major focus is on water sports, as each of the islands are surrounded by a coral reef providing large areas of crystal clear water for everything from snorkeling to wind surfing.

Of these islands, only five are open to tourism and are the most sought-after tourism destinations. Boasting of some of the most beautiful and virgin beaches in the world, Lakshadweep Isles in the Indian Ocean's Lakshadweep Sea are surrounded by lagoons and are ideal for water sports.

Tourism is restricted to ensure that the environment is not ecologically damaged. Bangaram, the resort for international tourists, is uninhabited. The four islands open to domestic tourism include Kavaratti (the administrative capital), Kalpeni, rich in coral and marine life, Kadamat, known for its fine beaches, and Minicoy which has one of the largest lagoons in the archipelago. Agatti has beautiful lagoons and the airport is located here.

Bangaram Island Beach Resort on this island provides an amazing opportunity for guests to unwind from the pressures and tensions of modern life.  Two small islands of Thinnakara and Parali also lie close to Bangaram enclosed by the same lagoon. During the night, phosphorescent plankton washed ashore on the coral sands impart a bluish glow to the beach, which is totally enchanting

Accommodation on the island is simple, unpretentious, yet comfortable.  Set in 128 acres, there are 30 tiled -roof beach huts, each with its own palm-thatched verandah, en suite bathroom, ceiling fan and fridge.

It's a little architectural marvel, being made entirely out of bamboo and palm fronds, around one tall central pole
