LAKSHADWEEP HUNDRED THOUSAND ISLANDS
LAKSHADWEEP CRUISE SHIP
Lakshadweep is the smallest Union Territory of India, covering just 32sq.km. The 36 islands, islets and atolls and the waters in between together take 4,200sq.km of space. Kavaratti is the administrative capital of the union territory. ‘Lakshadweep’ means a thousand islands, and it is located about 220km from Kerala’s Malabar Coast. Most of the natives are followers of Islam, with a smattering of Hindus and Christians. Coconut cultivation, fishing and coir making are the major occupations of the island people.
Those who like water sports and adventure activities will have a great time here. Everything from sea swimming to deep sea fishing is possible. Out of 36 islands, only 10 are inhabited. Many islands can only be visited during the day to explore their flora and fauna. The Pitti island is completely converted into a bird sanctuary. Terns are found in plenty there. So are turtles. The islands of Lakshadweep are rich in wildlife and eco-tourism is fast catching up. Bird watching and turtle walking are something you can do as a pastime here.
In the islands tourists can opt for adventure sports and water sports. You can also go for boating, kayaking and deep sea fishing. Water scooters and jet skis are available on rent. In boating, there are pedal boats, kayaks and glass-bottom ones you can take. On a boat ride you can view small corals under the shallow blue waters, fish that swim close to your boat, and many birds, too. There are agencies that offer equipment and crew on hire. A walk around the villages is refreshing and you can meet the locals and interact with them.
