It is hard to believe that the Lakshadweep Islands, formerly known as the Laccadives, have remained widely untouched from tourism. The islands are the northernmost of the Lakshadweep-Maldives-Chagos group of islands, which are the tops of a vast undersea mountain range, the Chagos-Laccadive Ridge. A mere 1 1/2 hour flight from mainland India is all that it takes to set foot into the softest coral sand you will ever experience. Stepping off the plane and you find yourself in the famous ”Giant Trevally triangle” of the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea. The Lakshadweep islands are the eastern border of this body of water that is known for its massive GT’s. Just on the other side of the Arabian sea, you will find Southern Oman as well as Socotra, both known for their unimaginable fish size on heavy popping equipment.
