If you thought that Lakshadweep was only about looking at the pristine beauty of the place, then you are going to be surprised to know that there are a plethora of things that you can do or take part in, in Lakshadweep. Excited enough? Then, read on.

  • Lagoon Fishing

    You can always go for fishing to the beautiful encircling lagoons at different islands in Lakshadweep. There are also night tours arranged by some hotels which are generally done with fishing rods that are attached with flashlights. At this time, you can also look for Planktons which is another amazing experience. The Lakshadweep lagoons are a hub for the famous tuna fish and other various kinds of unknown species of fish, you can explore that too. You can also enjoy shallow sea fishing which is done at several areas near the shores.

  • Water Sports

    If you are a water sports lover then Lakshadweep is the destination for you. There can't be anything on your list that is not available in the area. Ranging from
    kayaking, scuba diving, snorkelling to surfing and yachting, the islands have everything. You can contact the hotel or resort people to arrange for adventure sports or you can also contact the private operators. Make sure that you are well aware of the technicalities so that the experience cannot fatally harm you. Also, you should always focus on not really harming the marine life in anyway when you are doing the water stuff. Look for all this on Agatti, Kalpeni, Bangaram and Minicoy specially as they are the hubs for such activities.

  • Fiber Surface Boats

    There are hotels on the islands which offer a tour of the sea on a boat that has a transparent fibre surface. From the boats, you can view all the species of marine life going about their daily routine and chores. The boats take you right in the centre of the sea which is one of the most amazing experiences on the islands as it is just in the middle of all the action. Try it to believe how marvellously other forms of life survive and that too in a rocking way!

  • Take the traditional road

    If you are on Agatti Island, you can take a tour of the nearby village on a bicycle. Now, if you are lucky then you get to participate in the different dances that the locals perform on various occasions. That pleased the dancer in you, right? The villagers perform Dandi and Lava dance during some celebrations and the best part is that they are really cordial to invite you into the festivity. You can learn a step here and a step there and transform yourself into an amazing dancer.

I am sure you wouldn't have imagined doing so much at this amazing coral beauty. But, it's true. Try all this to blow off your mind.
