Against the vast blue sea the Lakshadeep islands look like emeralds. Each island in Lakshadeep is fringed by snow white coral sands. The Lakshadweep islands are linked to the mainland mainly by ships, though air service is also available. The 24 hour cruise to this wonderful land amidst the Arabian Sea, begins from the port of Cochin, in the mainland.
Each island of Lakshadweep or Laccadives, a tiny principality in itself, has existed from time immemorial, with little influence from the outside world.
The charm of Lakshadweep islands lies in their remoteness. Far off the beaten track, they attract no hordes of merry makers to its shores, or perhaps it is the beauty of the islands 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.
