Traveled with family (2 kids) on the 3 island visit via the Samudram package in May'15. Its a cruise package onboard a large ship (Kavarati). 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

Clean and clear water. Everyone visiting here must go for Scuba diving. It is cheaper here (INR 1500) as compared to other places in India. Lots of beautiful fish are visible.Overall its an unforgettable experience.

This is a beautiful island in Lakshadweep but not the best. The beaches are having sharp stones, corals etc so wear easy waterproof slippers or sandals even while doing water sports or snorkeling. Use suntan waterproof lotions extensively and keep drinking water. Kids must be monitored and taken to shade periodically to avoid skin burn or rashes. Use headgear, goggles... More

We did family vacation of lakshadweep islands with Samudram package. Kalpeni island had amazing coastline and mini islands which lent beautiful landscaping. Blue waters lent a sense of innermost peace . We did snorkeling in Kalpeni island and explored corals popular in this island. Overall , a must visit in one's lifetime :).

Kalpeni is one of the non-commercialized islands in Lakshadweep and hence a natural beauty. Like most of the tourists, I travelled through SPORTS, Samudram package. After disembarkation, we reached the the SPORTS office on a beach from which one could see two islands - Tilakam and Pitti. It was a beautiful scene. Snorkelling @ Pitti island: We were taken in...
