Agatti Island Beach Resort

Agatti Island Beach Resort

Agatti Island Beach Resort presents a breath taking spectacle of sparkling coral reefs, turquoise blue lagoons, silvery beaches and lush green coconut palms. Here time stands still in the mesmerizing beauty of a virgin nature. It is one of world's most spectacular tropical islands untouched by the tourist rush.

The emerald green idyllic palm clad islands of Agatti; the long white beaches; the multi-hued shallow, placid lagoon with its myriad life forms; the diamond surf formed by waves striking the reef and the deep blue of the Arabian sea are all feasts to the eye and an experience that will last a lifetime. Perhaps it is one of the very few places where all shades of blue, green and white are present. In fact, the islands and the coral reefs are so varied in its physical form and appearance that no two would look alike. The quietness and the peace is an enthralling experience that ensures total rejuvenation to the body, mind and soul.

No amount of description can explain the actual beauty of this paradise. It is like discovering something beyond imagination. The resort is located in the most serene spot of the island which is one of the world's most spectacular tropical islands. Swimming or rowing or diving in deep sea or shallow lagoon, viewing the underwater world in glass bottomed boat or visiting an uninhabited island- never is there a moment which is not thrilling or memorable.

The island resort offers well arranged aquatic sports like Kayaking, Snorkeling, Scuba diving, lagoon cruising, glass bottomed boat riding, canoeing, skiing, and excursion to nearby islands.

Kayaking

It not only gives you exercise but is also fun in racing with your friends or family. Traditionally kayaks are used for short distance transportation. The kayak is propelled by a double bladed paddle. The kayak and its paddle are made of fiber.

Snorkeling
The best way to explore under water life without the hassles of scuba diving. Discover the diversity of marine life of these beautiful islands. Explore the underwater world, enjoy the sublime seascapes. The lagoons here are vast and shallow, leaving a lot of space for a good swim. Guests can snorkel with turtles just a few yards from the beach. Snorkel trips are organized to nearby island reefs.

WHAT IS SNORKELING?
Snorkeling is a common form of diving on the surface or just below the surface of the water. A snorkel is a tube that allows the diver to breathe while floating at the water's surface. One end fits in the diver's mouth and the other end extends above the water to get air for breathing. You are provided with a mask to see clearly in the water. Make sure to add this in your list of activities when in Agatti.

Sailing
SailingA gentle and relaxing activity where the only noise is the wind, the sails and the water lapping against the hull. It ca also be a fast active sport where a gust of wind will catch the sail driving you forward with an acceleration which you would not have expected.

Scuba Diving
Scuba diving is for those who want to explore the world beneath the sea, hidden to naked eyes. The islands offer a wealth of relatively new, untouched dive sites in the world. There are opportunities for divers of all levels of experience and most dive locations are within an easy boat trip from the shore. Diving is very enjoyable and is the only sport where you feel that you are in a zero gravity environment. A must do activity. Diving here is by all accounts better than anywhere else as El Nino has lesser effect here. The instructors are well trained professionals who can speak English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish.

Dive to a maximum of 15m with exposure to the sandy coral reef. You can see turtles, nurse sharks and napoleons. There is likelihood to see sand eels, leopard muray eels, lion fish, sting rays and white whale shark. When you go 20m you can see manta rays throughout the year. At a depth of 25m you will see a totally different world. It is usual here to see big schools of jacks, eagle rays and hump heads, the biggest in the parrot fish family.

Note 1
Decompression chamber is not available. Diving beyond 35 mt is not permitted Diving outside the reef is only possible between September 15 and MAY 15. All diving activities are at divers' own risk.

Note 2
This island is environmentally fragile. Guests are requested to leave the abundance of marine life undisturbed. Feeding of fish has never been practiced here. Hence all sea creatures still behave in their natural way. Do not attempt to ride turtles and manta rays. Guests are welcome to find out the difference of diving in Lakshadweep with other famous dive spots.

FISHING
