Why travel Lakshadweep?

Lakshadweep is a group of exquisite islands, located into the Arabian Sea. However there are only 36 islands in total. Its 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 merry markers to their shores. Or perhaps it is the beauty of the island's densely covered with coconut palms, and threaded by an unbroken line of creamy sand; each island serenely set in a sea whose waters range from palest aquamarine and turquoise to deepest sapphire and lapis lazuli.
Yet again, may be the unique charm of Lakshadweep lies in the fact that each island, a tiny principality in itself, has existed from time immemorial, with little influence from the outside world. The islands, though all equally mystical and beautiful, each offers a unique blend of tourist spots. Some islands have been promoted for diving and watersports still others have been developed so that people enjoy the charm of relaxation and natural enjoyment.
To travel from one island to another you can either use the ferry system or hire a helicopter.
