Be warned. There are some things that are hard to find in Lakshadweep, like fast cars, or shrinks or tranquilizers. They do have all that water though. Bright and clear as liquid glass. Fringed by white stretches of sand where the only throngs you’ll ever see are of the sandpipers on the shore. And you could sleep by the seaside with the night sky as your ceiling. Therapy has never felt better.
Geographically similar to that other diver’s haunt. Lakshadweep is like Maldives without the crowds. 400 kilometers off the coast of Kerala, this group of 36 coral island and atolls can be reached by a twenty-hour sea journey from Cochin. Of the ten inhabited islands, only two, Bangaram and Kadmat, are open to foreigners and there are dive centers on both these islands. The lagoons are home to a spectacular world of marine life, so unexplored, you may well have a site named after you.
