A Hundred Thousand Islands


'Lakshadweep' literally means a 'hundred thousand islands', which is teeming with life and home to India's coral reefs. Relax at the laid-back islands with the fisher folk who are at the beaches watching homeward bound boats at sea.

Come from or Go to...

  • Fort and Sea

    The curved beach of Bekal and the imposing 300 year old fort of the same name has a stark beauty of a remote area with long lost tales of military might. Enjoy spectacular views from the ramparts of the fort 130 feet above the sea, the Aqua Marine park and relish the Malabari cuisine of North Kerala.

  • Fusion culture by the sea

    The fishing nets that hang above the seashore in Fort Cochin are an iconic sight, but there is much more to explore in this ancient colonial city.

  • High Tea in Munnar

    Munnar is the meeting place of the Nallthanni and Kundale stream that pour out into the Muthirapuzha River, which cascades out of the hills to join the Periyar. Visit the High range areas, tea estates and beautiful resorts of Munnar and enjoy the climate and the spices.

  • Hunting Frogs in Monsoon

    The monsoons in Kerala have long been romanticized in films and poetry, bringing in creative folk and others who come for Ayurveda and recuperation. Chasing frogs during the monsoon is a pastime for children who long to play in the rain. Join the fun and watch paper boats and bright umbrellas bob up and down with water everywhere.

  • Kayaking the Lagoons

    Kayak your way into the lagoons of Kerala's largest lake to spot Egrets, Darters, Drongos and more plumage in the nearby Kumarakam Bird Sanctuary. Glide through a maze of canals and palm lined coasts into tiny villages as the sun sets and the birds head back to their nests.

  • Lagoons and Lakes

    Placid waters, languor and soothing views everywhere in Kumarakom is muse enough for poetry. Write, relax or wallow in the serene waters in a little canoe or a luxury houseboat, try fishing, kayaking or birdwatching and explore the village way of life here.

  • The New Goa

    Here is the grandest views of the Arabian sea with a backdrop of red cliffs with jagged edges that watch the beach that has long remained undiscovered by tourists. Discover Varkala, which has a couple of luxury resorts today and an unparalleled calm that was once a Goan experience.

  • The Venice of the East

    Land and water merge often here in Alleppey as roads disappear during the monsoon, when motorists go confidently simply out of familiarity with no GPS in sight. Unwind in a houseboat here that will be as lazy as you want it to be and venture out to a palace or temple near-by to take in the greenery on the pretext of light physical exertion.

  • Tiger Tiger - tracking tigers in Periyar

    The wardens estimate that 40 wild tigers inhabit the jungle sanctuary in the Western Ghats. Visitors very very rarely see them in this remotest of their ranges.
