Kalpeni island visit is in our Samudram Package trip for the second day as we spent first day in Kavaratti island. Kalpeni is about 211km from Kvaratti island and we reached the Off-loading poibt by 6.00AM. Got up early and moved to deck for capturing sun rise. But the cloud covered sun and did not get a good snap. The... More

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. I enjoyed the snorkelling expedition with a SPORTS instructor who was very helpful. The sea bed though... More

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.
