what a place, probably that's what why they say that people from the hills n valleys love costs and islands. One of the finest places on Earth, The Ship and the Sea, and the Islands around and the beauty and everything, is out of this world, i believe the best holiday after Hawaii can be Lakshadweep, but make sure that...

Visited Agatti during last xmas hols - Lakshadweep is a hidden gem. crystal clear water, clean sand beaches and amazing people. Did snorkelling, diving, lazy walks through the beach etc etc and was amazing. Tip: Not much water sports / activities other than the above and also there was only a mediocre restaurant (which we found interesting :) )

This is one place which is closest to nature. No noise is allowed on the islands and not many humans around. The island boasts of sea on both sides as it is a long strip. The walk on the centre road is charming and relaxing. Activities on the island involves snorkelling, glass bottom boat ride and kayaking etc. The sea... More

Stayed here for 1 night only in Oct 2013 at a government guest house due to the late arrival of the AIr India flight preventing the timely departure to Kadmat Island. On the plus side it presented an opportunity to look around Agatti island before heading onto Kadmat at 4am! Since then speedboats are now available for the transit to... More

At the outset I would like to admit that our one day visit to Agatti Island was forced one due to cancellation of our flight due to technical reasons. We were left standard without accommodation and food. Finally got one shut resort open, where the caretaker very graciously allowed us one nights stay. He did manage to get us food... More
