Crystal clear lagoons, good hospitality by islanders and fresh sea food is the highlight.getting visiting permit and tickets is uncertain up to last days of departure even if planning well in advance due to various reasons is the drawback.

Agatii island is one of the coral paradise in India. First , getting permit is a humungous task . You'll be needing police verification certificate to apply for a permit which is hard to get depending upon the state you're in and then you have to apply for local permit. Plan a month in advance for all these .

We stayed across the beach in a home stay which was awesome. You can see clear waters everywhere. The locals sre much friendly . The food is really good mostly tuna fish. Eastern ,western jetty and lagoon beach are places to see here . Turtles are freely roaming, one can hire a boat to see them alone .Don't miss the sunset in the lagoon beach which is another level.

Others places to visit are bangaram and thinnakara islands which is an hour boat ride and kalpeti a nearby island from agatii.

Lakshadweep Govt. don't have any accommodation at Agatti Island. There are private cottages under home stay category where tourists can stay. A permit is required to visit and stay at Agatti Island. For our trip, a Travel agent from Cochin called 'Holiday Planet Tours' arranged permits and packages for our family. They have also arranged day trips to Bangaram, Thinnakara and Kalpitti islands from Agatti. Home stays are standard category. Holiday Planet Tours's staff are professional and specialized in Lakshadweep packages. Food was good. We had enough sea food. Vegetarian and Jain food were available on request. It is always better to go with this kind of reliable operators so that we can enjoy our trip without any headache.

Agatti island is the gateway to Lakshadeep islands as it is the only island which has an airport and flight connectivity to Kochi. It is around 1 hour 15 min flight from Kochi in an ATR run by Air India. From airport there are taxis or autos plying. The island is around 7.6 km long. The Lagoon beach is on the other end of the island. From airport is would take around 20-25 min to reach the Lagoon beach. We infact purchased some dried tuna fish from the fishermen who were drying the smoked tuna fish. Also it was nice to see the locals visiting the beach in the evening and children playing on the beach

One has to experience the Pristine Environment. No Water Pollution, No Air Pollution, Limited Internet Connectivity. Sun beaches. Endless to explain.
