It had also remained as the base port for Laccadive group of Islands (Androth, Agatti, Kavaratti, Suhelipar and Kalpeni). Now, it exists as the base for machine cum sailing vessels of Lakshadweep. A boat-building yard here is famous for the construction of country crafts called uru. The port has a 100 m wharf. About 7 km from the port is the Kadalundi Bird Sanctuary.
