Bangaram Island

The Jewel of Lakshadweep

Bangaram is an uninhabited small island of Lakshadweep. But this unspoilt and pollution free island is open to both domestic and foreign tourists. It is surrounded by a scenic lagoon enclosed by coral reef.

According to the history, this island was originally in the hands of the people of Agatti. Later it was confiscated by the Bibi of Kannur in 1764 as a punishment for the murder of an accountant stationed there.

Bangaram Island is now ranked as one of the best quiet getaways in the world. It offers an enchanting view of sparkling coral reefs, turquoise blue lagoons, silvery beaches and lush green coconut palms. For a scuba diver or a sun-seeker, who are idle or adventurous, this is the ultimate retreat.

A beautiful lake situated here is filled with fresh water during the rainy season. Bangaram Island Resort offers excellent accommodations in 30 tiled-roof beach huts.

This veritable tropical paradise can be accessed from Agatti, the nearest island where the airport is situated.
