Bangaram Islands
 
Day 03 : BANGARAM ISLANDS
 
From all the 36 islands, Bangaram is the most beautiful. It is everything you imagine a tropical island to be and from the moment you set foot on the blinding, soft, white sand you'll be totally enraptured by the exotic natural beauty of what can only be described as one of the most exclusive tropical islands in the world. Sixty Square Kilometers of pristine lagoon, two uninhabited islands five minutes away and a shipwreck just outside the reef where you can see the most colorful fish, make the resort an exclusive place to be. No wonder, it was one of the most favorite places of Rajeev Gandhi, who took his yearly sabbatical here, while he was the Prime Minister of the country. Overnight stay at the Resort.

Everything about the island is natural and simple. It is quite a small island you can walk around it in an hour or so. surronded by superb, soft, silvery sands with an interior of lush green coconut groves, it portrays an image of pure ecstasy. Surrounding the island is a coral reef, which forms a large sheltered lagoon, the most incredible shade of luminous turquoise, which also encloses three small-uninhabited islands. Overnight stay at the Resort.
