This island has the best lagoon to snorkelling and see the corals in various shapes, colors, shinning tips, and fishes of various kind. One does not feel like coming out of the lagoon. When there are others waiting for their turn with the snorkelling equipment one is forced out of a dream. The cristal clear water, the white sand, corals... More

There are other water sports facilities available some of which are free and others to be paid for as per the travel package opted for.

Visited this island as part of Samudram package and had free snorkelling as part of the package. Spent nearly 3 hours snorkelling here and saw abundance of aquatic life, corals and boulders. It was almost as if I was in a magical underwater world. The beach also is good and has good water sports options.

Kalpeni beach was too good for snorkling. There were instructors or guides to help us find location where we can see corals and fish. I was so afraid to get into water,though I was wearing life jacket. The instructor made me comfortable by holding my hand and letting me float on the water. Once I felt comfortable, he led me...

Kalpeni is best for snorkelling, Scuba Diving and transparent Glass Bottom boating. Very beautiful, crystal clear water can see deep easily up to 20-30 feet with white sand beaches.

The ship hops between islands during the night, and you are transferred to the island / beaches during the day. Ship boarding was a bit lengthy and took some time for the security checks at... More

We took the Samudram package with SPORTS the official tourism department of Lakshadweep. The five day island hopping cruise was a wonderful experience. At Kalpeni snorkelling was part of the package and here we saw a wide variety of marine life including giant clam, finger corals, sea cucumbers and fishes of different hues. The lagoon here is pretty shallow so... More
