Agatti Island (occasionally called "Agathy") is a small 7 kilometer long island, situated about 250 kilometers off the Kochi Coast. It is surrounded on all sides by a coral reef.
It is a part of the Lakshadweep Islands, which is the smallest union territory of India. Access by sea requires a 24 hour boat journey, while flying takes only 75 minutes from nearby Kochi. Indian Airlines operates a 10 seater Dornier to the island, while Kingfisher Airlines has its ATR712 from Kochin.

You can only enter the Island if you have a confirmed place to stay. There is only one hotel in Agatti, called Agatti Island Beach Resort.
Get into one of the most beautiful lagoons from here. A virtual gateway to the islands, Agatti has the only airport in the island. A twenty-bedded tourist resort has been set up here. Unlike other islands it is the only island where one can stay as long or as short as one wishes- an advantage given by the Indian Airlines flight operated from Kochi. Uninhabited islands of Bangaram, Thinnakara, Parali-I and Parali-II are just a hop away. Land in these tiny islands and enjoy an exclusive day excursion.
