Kadmat Island

Kadmat is one of the inhabited islands of Lakshadweep. It is about 293 km from Kochi and 10 km north of Amini. Kadmat is 8 km long and 550 m wide at its broadest point.

Kadmat Island is very small and is isolated from the mainland. There is very large lagoon on the western side abounding in coral growths. The narrow lagoon on the eastern side dries up at low tide.

Kadmat is noted for the long sandy beaches and small sand banks on the southern tip ideal for sun baths.

Coir twisting is the main occupation of the islanders. Kadmat is known for its lime stones used for building purposes. Accommodation facilities are available at the Dak Bungalow.
