"Blue Sea and Unspoiled Beaches"

Lakshadweep Tourism

Literally meaning a 'hundred thousand islands', Lakshadweep has few of the most beautiful and exotic islands and beaches of India.
Lakshadweep is typically accessed from Kochi (Kerala) and a permit is required to visit Lakshadweep for all tourists (including Indians). After permit, Indians are permitted to visit all islands, however, even after permit, foreigners are permitted to just visit Agatti, Bangaram and Kadmat Islands. Permits can be obtained from Kochi itself.

The smallest Union Territory of India, 'Lakshadweep' is a group of beautiful islands, located some 400 km off India's west coast into the Arabian Sea. However, there are only 36 islands having a total area of 32 sq. kilometers. It's made up of 12 atolls, 3 reefs and 5 submerged banks. Ten Islands are inhabited.

Perhaps the charm of Lakshadweep islands lies in their remoteness. Far off the beaten track, they attract no hordes of merrymakers to their shores. The islands, though all equally mystical and beautiful, each offers a unique blend of tourist spots. Some islands have been promoted for diving and water sports, still, others have been developed so that people enjoy the charm of relaxation.


Lakshadweep can be reached via water and air only. It lies about 400 Km away from the Western coast of India in the Arabian Sea.
The Union Territory has an airport in Aggati, which is connected to the Kochi Airport only.
Nearest Airport: Agatti Island (Lakshadweep) - 180 kms from Lakshadweep
