Agatti Island Packages
Known as the
Coral Paradise, geologically the Lakshadweep Islands are believed
to be extensions of the Aravalli system of Rocks, as sub-marine
mountains on whose tops coral growth has taken place during
the late tertiary period to form inhabitable reefs, atolls,
sand banks and sandy Islands of exquisite beauty and mystique.
The Islands are covered with Coconut palms which is the main
cash crop here. Coir and rope making industries are still to
be developed. The Coasts of the Lakshadweep Islands are abundant
in Sea life.
The sea is rich
in coral and fishes like Tuna, Barracuda, Sailfish, Yellow fin,
Travelly, Powder Blue Surgeonfish, Porcupine fishes, Pufferfish,
Moray eels, Octopus and Wahoo.
Slow moving creatures found on the Coral reefs are Sea Cucumbers,Molluscs
and Hermit Crabs.Playful Dolphins, Turtles, Rays and Flying
Fishes are occasionally seen.
Though the ecologically is fragile, tourism has been developed
to international levels around a few Islands like Bangaram,
Minicoy and attracts thousands of visitors all around the world.
