Agatti Island !! ......Thinking of taking a break
I was flying on a trip to google earth .......and suddenly i landed up on a small island just n the left side of my country .......and i am stuck with its beauty . The nature is the bigest master in the world.......and no matter who you are......designer or architect....
Agatti Island (occassionally called "Agathy") is a small 7km long island, situated about 250kms off the Kochi Coast. It is surrounded on all sides by a beautiful coral reef, so the waters around it are a lagoon and not the sea.
It is a part of the Lakshadweep Islands. Lakshadweep is the smallest union territory of India. Located in the Arabian Sea, it consists of twelve coral atolls, three coral reefs, five banks, and numerous islets that lie 200–300 km off of the coast of Kerala. The total land area of the territory is 32 sq.km.
Eleven of the islands are inhabited. Capital of the Union territory is Kavarati Island. Pitti Island is a small sandy uninhabited island which is a Bird sanctuary
