Best Time to Visit Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep means a place for a million islands in the Malayalam language. It is an island in India tucked away from the hustling culture. But that does not make it not worthy of visiting. It is the smallest union territory and maintains its beauty with sand-sational beaches, crystal clear waters, blue lagoon, and beach resorts that are a destination themselves. Lakshadweep is a turquoise island where beach babies love to disconnect from the chaos. The best time to visit Lakshadweep is between September-October, and March-May.

This island is located 450 km (approx.) from the Kerala coast and feels like a visual meditation retreat. Calm, serene, unspoiled, and untouched by mass tourism are a few traits of Lakshadweep. This place is a cluster of breathtaking islands that demands exploration. It is made up of 12 atolls, 3 reefs, and 5 submerged banks. There are around 36 islands (approx.) in Lakshadweep that sprawls to 32 sq km (approx.).

However, keep in mind that may rain often – although not frequently – in October and November.

Around 10 islands in Lakshadweep are inhabited. Tourists - both Indian or foreigners need to obtain a permit to visit Lakshadweep. A permit is easily available from Kochi, or you can ask your trip planner to arrange that for you! After obtaining a permit, Indian tourists can explore all the inhabited islands. However, foreigners are restricted from exploring a few islands, including Agati, Banfaram, Kadmat Island. A few of the Lakshadweep islands are best for watersports lovers, while the other ones are best for leisure seekers.
