Lakshadweep – Kadmat Island: We could hardly imagine that an island which is just 8 km long and only 550 meters wide at its broadest point has so much to give. It is a haven of solitude with long silver shoreline, sand banks on southernmost tip and beautiful shallow lagoon of even depth ideal for swimming. Kadmat is the only island apart from Bangaram and Agatti where international tourists are allowed. It’s an island wherein we can see both sides of the shoreline by standing at one place.
