Travel Tips

Sure, Lakshadweep islands are known for their pristine beauty, and diving opportunities. For a visit to the islands of Kavaratti, Minicoy, Kadmat, Agatti, and Bangaram here are some travel tips:

Best Time to visit:
The best time to visit the Lakshadweep islands is from October to May, when the weather is pleasant and ideal for watersports.

Route and Accessibility:
Fly to Agatti from Kochi (Cochin), followed by a helicopter/ship ride to other islands. Make sure to book tickets in advance due to limited capacity. Note that you'll need a permit to visit any island in Lakshadweep.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
You don't need any special acclimatization as these are sea-level islands.

Accommodation and Booking:
There are limited stay options in the islands. Pre-booking is mandatory and it's best to check with the Lakshadweep Tourism Department.

Clothing and Essentials:
Pack comfortable and light clothing for the tropical weather. Don't forget hats, sunglasses, and high SPF sunblock. Carry snorkeling or diving equipment if you plan to explore the underwater coral reefs.

Health and Safety:
Keep a first aid kit handy and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Follow all safety guidelines while participating in water sports.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Most islands have a large Muslim population, so respect local customs - dress modestly, especially in locally inhabited islands. Note that alcohol is prohibited on all the islands except Bangaram.

Remember to not disturb the fragile coral ecosystem and keep the beaches clean. Enjoy your trip!
