Stepping into a whole new world
Day 1 of your tour in Lakshadweep will smack you in the face with awe-inspiring sights. After landing at Agatti Airport, you will be picked up and taken to your hotel via a short road trip to so you can check-in. The whole day is there to be spent at your leisure, although it’s hard to imagine you’ll want to do anything other than kick-off your footwear and take a barefoot stroll over the sandy beaches, right into near the fantasy-like lagoon of Agatti Island. Even as far as 500 metres in, the water level won’t rise higher than your knees. All-in-all, this day is best spent taking in these vivid, new surroundings. So put your feet up and relax, while you spend your first night on Agatti island.
Mingling with a new culture
Once breakfast is done, the second day of the tour is for the exploration of your host island of Agatti, interacting with the people, and understanding their customs. The culture here, such as music and dance, does display that Islamic influence. It also shares similarities with Kerala’s culture, given that Kerala is the closest state on the Indian mainland. Lava is a form of dance performed by the male residents of the Lakshadweep islands during festivals. Another form of dance that is part of the island’s traditions is Parichakali, which is sort of a blend of traditional dancing with martial arts. Handicraft items found in these parts are made of locally present corals, shells and oysters, all of which are used to make various ornaments and jewelry. Visitors may purchase these items if they wish to. The day ends with an overnight stay right here on Agatti Island.
A boat to the uninhabited
The day begins with breakfast, after which you’ll hop onto a boat for a jaunt to the uninhabited islands of Bangaram and Thinnakara. You’ll have the pleasure of witnessing dolphins and turtles swimming around in their natural habitats on your way there. Thinnakara Island nearby also offers similarly mesmerizing seascapes, with bioluminescent plankton dwelling in its surroundings. After sipping some tea and enjoying the evening, the tour returns to Agatti island for an overnight stay.
Sunsets on a lonely island
Breakfast starts the day once again, and you’ll have some time to kill afterward, so feel free to explore more of Agatti, or just kick back for a bit. Once lunchtime rolls around and you’ve had a hearty meal, we’re off on another boat ride to Kalpitty Island. It is another one of Lakshadweep’s uninhabited islands which should take about 45 minutes to reach. We’ll spend the afternoon on this island, till we get to see a particularly stunning sight of the sunset. As the sun goes down, we return to Agatti Island for an overnight stay.
The water is your playground
The entirety of this day, if you choose to participate, is dedicated to water sports. There is a wide variety of activities available to go for, so you’re bound to find something of interest. Scuba diving lets you take a look a clear, close-up look at the underwater life, with schools of fish, colorful corals, and the seemingly alien topography within arms reach. If you’re not to keen on going deep into the water, but still want a glimpse of life under the sea, snorkeling is for you. There’s deep-sea fishing for those who wish to go out onto the open waters and try to find out whether anything will take the bait.
Furthermore, you could go surfing, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing, yachting, and so much more. One final overnight stay on Agatti Island awaits you at the end of the day.
