The smallest Union Territory of India, ‘Lakshadweep’ is a group of beautiful islands, located some 400km off India’s west coast into the Arabian Sea. However, there are only 36 islands having a total area of 32 sq. kilometres.
The islands, though all equally mystical and beautiful, each offers a unique blend of tourist spots.
Far off the beaten track, they attract no hordes of merrymakers to their shores. Or perhaps it is the beauty of the islands densely covered with coconut palms, and threaded by an unbroken line of creamy sand; each island serenely set in a sea whose waters range from palest aquamarine and turquoise to deepest sapphire and lapis lazuli.
Yet again, maybe the unique charm of Lakshadweep lies in the fact that each island, a tiny principality in itself, has existed from time immemorial, with little influence from the outside world.
This group of 36 islands is a delight for every visitor. Its distance from the mainland justifies the cleanliness of the water here. Marked by sandy beaches and coral reefs, Lakshadweep Islands are a visual delight.
With the vast expanse of greenery, it makes for a perfect vacation that offers peace and freshness. The place has been endowed with rich marine wealth.
