Honeymoon in Lakshadweep

Duration:

14 Nights / 15 Days

Destination:

After the hectic wedding celebrations, when you have had a surfeit of sweets and relatives, rituals and revelry, all you want to do is drift and dream in a quiet honeymoon interlude. Let your thoughts turn to Lakshadweep, a gorgeous archipelago of coral islands in the sunny Indian Ocean, where you can float and tumble, dive and soar. Here you can take long leisurely walks on soft sand, gentle waves kissing your feet. Sway gently in a hammock, sip coconut water together, swim languidly in the moonlight, linger around the glowing embers of a campfire and chase that last drop of ambrosia.

If this sounds romantic, you simply have to come here to believe the incredibly beautiful reality of Lakshadweep. Lying 350 km off the Kerala coast, strung in a shimmering strand of jewels, the islands are coral atolls that encircle a fabulous aquamarine lagoon. Out of the 36 islands, only 10 are inhabited, and that too, sparsely - great news for honeymooners who want to just lose themselves.

Bangaram is the most sought after island, with rafting, snorkeling, deep-sea diving and deep-sea fishing. Sail in glass-bottomed boats, swim with turtles and dolphins, snorkel in the reef through colonies of fish. Surf the aqua marine waters, romp the white sands. Just revel in the anonymity of Lakshadweep, for that honeymoon of a lifetime.

Special Permits

A trip to Lakshadweep requires a tourist permit. This can be arranged at the Lakshadweep Tourist Office in Cochin (Kochi). The only way to visit is to hook up with a package tour group. Tour operators start the first of the trips in October and continue till May. Bangaram is open to both Indian and foreign tourists who have permits. Though Kadmat, Kalpeni, Minicoy and Kavaratti are open to Indian tourists only, movement is restricted to the tourist area.

Getting there

The usual way to get to Lakshadweep is to fly from Cochin (Kochi) in Kerala to Agatti Island. The airport takes small aircrafts and helicopters, which allows only up to 10 kg baggage weight per person. The govt tourist dept operates cruises from Cochin to all the islands that are open to tourists. This is strictly a package deal though, and is not really a 'getting there' solution, plus it's open to only Indian tourists. Kerala Tourism offers special 5-day cruise packages for the islands of Agatti, Kavaratti and Kadmat, with on-board accommodation.

Accommodation

People usually stay at the resort island of Bangaram, the only island that offers overnight accommodation at a private resort. There is no indigenous local population so this is an out and out tourist facility. The hotel has cottages on the beach; a multi cuisine restaurant with a bar, a library, scuba diving gear on hire, and tons of ambience. Catamarans, kayaks and sailboats are free: grab and go! Government accommodation is available at Kavaratti, Kadmat and Agatti. Prices range from a minimum of Rs. 3500 to Rs 10,000 for the cottages.

Best season

The most popular months are from January to the middle of May when the diving and fishing is good but it's possible to visit any time in the year. Lakshadweep has a tropical climate with temperature ranging from 25 C to 35 C in summer and winters are just marginally cooler.
