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 :).

We moved from island to island during the night in the MV Tipu Sultan and spent the day at the islands. We visited Kalpeni, Kadamat and Minicoy. The white coral reef beaches are an out of the world... More

Lovely Snorkeling Site. The beach is strewn with corals which cut your shoes and legs. Strong currents. The beach resort is basic but nice. Lovely view. Check out http://movingfinger.hubpages.com/hub/How_to_plan_a_trip_to_lakshadweep_and_minicoy_islands for more details
