Kalpeni is one of the most beautiful islands of Lakshadweep
. It comprises three uninhabited satellite islands named
, Pitti and Cheriyam. The Arab writers called this island 'Koefaini.' It is one of the progressive islands in Lakshadweep.
Kalpeni is surrounded by a lagoon of spectacular beauty. This lagoon is particularly rich in coral life. The huge storm bank of coral debris along the eastern and south-eastern shore is a peculiarity of this island. There is a small promontory at the northern end of Kalpeni Island called Kodithala. The area provides a number of activities such as kayaking, reef walking, sailing yachts, canoeing and snorkeling.
