Most Popular Islands of India: Are they great for Tour?

Though India has ranges of small and huge scenic Islands, but most of the people are not very familiar with these wonderful treasures. The majority of the islands are dotting in the coastline of Bay of Bengal and a few of them are remaining in the Arabian Sea. Perhaps, you dreamt of a tour of a scenic island with your family, friends and with the dearest one, under blue skies and amidst the turquoise green waters. To get such an amazing experience you don’t need to go abroad, a keen observation around India can give you the best island retreat.

Among many options following are the top and best suited Indian Islands which can turn your dreams into reality and can give you the same enjoyment that you perhaps enjoyed in a distant Island:

Andaman and Nicobar Islands

The Andaman and Nicobar groups of islands are spread all over the Bay of Bengal. Ship and helicopter are the only two options that can drive you from Calcutta, Chennai or Vishakhapatnam to the most popular city of Andaman, Port Blair. If there is any land that can convince you pretty surprisingly by its white sand beaches, perfect water and scenic beauty, it would definitely be the Andaman and Nicobar groups of islands. This beautiful gem of India is surrounded by excellent water-skiing, snorkeling, windsurfing, and are filled with friendly locals. As the monsoon passes away, months from October to May become friendlier to explore Andaman islands and that’s the time when you can slew for the best package.

Lakshadweep Islands

Lakshadweep experiences a tropical climate and is mostly favored by both Indian and International tourists for holiday. 36 numbers of islands of Lakshadweep are scattered off the Kerala Coast in Arabian Sea. As the monsoon hits, green vegetation shows its glorious view and the rain adds a different hue to the beauty of lagoons. The sandy beaches, natural landscapes, and plenty of flora and fauna enhance the mystique of Lakshadweep. For scuba divers, this could be the best destination to challenge their sturdiness. The famous religious site, Rameshwaram excursion and spa massage treatment would be the best retreat for you on Lakshadweep holiday.

Elephanta Island

Located in Mumbai harbor of the Arabian Sea; mostly visited because of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Elephanta Cave temple, which has been curved out by rock.  From the Gateway to India, it takes 1 hour to reach the island by ferry.

Sagar Island

This is the western most island of the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta, West Bengal state. But what separate it from any other island are its ideal religious sites. Annually, there are three bathing festivals organized where pilgrims come from all round the corner to take a holy dip at the confluence of river Ganges and offer their worship to Kapil Muni Temple. While moving through ferry, you will automatically express WOW!, after watching the beauty of Ganges and the villages settled across the bank of river.

Munroe Island

Munroe Island is located in the confluence of Ashtamudi Lake and the Kallada River in the Kollam district of Kerala. While you are at this island, you must go for the backwater village of this site. It will let you know about the village life of South Indian state at close quarters where villagers calmly spend their lives without staying away from the chaos and bustle of the outside world. Don’t miss to indulge in bird watching and fishing activity and to watch prawn feeding process, it will be a real feast for your eyes.

Butterfly Island

If you are coming to Goa for honeymoon, how can you miss to give a touch to this wonderful Butterfly Island? It is located in the North direction of Palolem beach, which is accounted one of the greatest natural marvels of the state. You will cover the distance from Butterfly beach to this Island by a private yacht or a speed boat; it will add more excitement in your tour. The dolphins are extra acrobatic in the waters surrounding the island. One can also expect to experience a bit of rock climbing activity as the place is strewn with rocks and boulders.
