Things to see and do in Bangaram
Bangaram is one of the most beautiful places in the world, with pristine smooth beaches against a palm grove backdrop. The island is surrounded by sparkling coral reefs and turquoise blue lagoons presenting plenty of opportunities for scuba diving, Yachting, pedal boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing are amongst the other things you can enjoy during a relaxing holiday here.
The peak tourist season occurs between December and May, when it's cool and dry. Between the months of May and September the area experiences the southwest monsoon season, and between October and November the northeast monsoon which are the rainiest months here.
Everybody, Indian or otherwise, requires a special permit to visit Lakshadweep. Foreigners are restricted to the islands of Agatti, Bangaram and Kadmat, and transit only (max. 12 hours) in Kavaratti. Indians may visit the other islands as well, but accommodation options are limited.
There are flights from Kochi to the airstrip at Agatti, the only one on the islands. Both boat and helicopter transfers are available from Agatti to Bangaram. The helicopter may be the only option in monsoon season from May to September.
