About the Tour : The Lakshadweep or Laccadives, as they were formerly called, are a string of little known islands, lying 200 or so miles off the Kerala coast.
There are 36 main islands in all, forming an archipelago of unsurpassing beauty. There are coral atolls, endless sands, submerged banks and reefs, covering a magical underwater world.
It is commonly believed that the islands were discovered by ship wrecked sailors during the reign of Charam Perumal, a legendary King of Kerala, around 435 AD. Today, the population of Lakshadweep is around 50,000, spread over ten islands.
The principal occupation of the people centres around fishing and coconut cultivation. The isolation of the islands have ensured the preservation of their pure culture and pristine nature, right to the present day.
The Jewel of the Lakshadweep, Bangaram Island is an uninhabited haven. Barring the occasional visitor from nearby Agatti (where the airport is situated), the only residents are the resort staff.
The more unhurried can simply laze on the silver beaches, soak in the sun, listen to the sound of the waves and watch the swaying of the palms. The island feels like it was designed specifically for languid strolls, to watch the beach danCES Of hermit crabs and listen to the raucous music of the seabirds. But should you feel the need for a little more adventure on your holiday, Bangaram island offers a whole new set of activities. The resort offers you a variety of outdoor pursuits - Kayaking, Catamaran sailing, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, and scuba diving.
For deep sea big game fishing, Bangaram is an ideal location. Record size Barracuda, Sailfish, Yellowfin, Travelly and Wahoo have often been caught. Local boats are available here for rent with experienced crew. Serious anglers are advised to bring their own equipment.
