There are two kinds of island people. The first kind is those who go to beaches and islands for partying and water sports. The second kind is those for whom beaches are all about relaxing and beach hammocks and the quiet serenity of the blue waters. But whichever kind you may be, you cannot deny that commercial beaches and dirty, murky waters are a big no-no! So if you’re tired of a parade of people always trying to ruin your quiet and relaxing beach holiday, then check out these top 10 lesser known island vacations in India. We promise, there won’t be any party poopers here!
1. Rameshwaram Island, Tamil Nadu.
This beautiful island is also known as “Varanasi of the South”. The few archaeological places over here make it the ultimate tourist spot. Also, this is linked to the mainland by the Indira Gandhi Bridge, one of India’s architectural excellence. The striking beauty of the island, coupled with the cultural wonders make it a must-visit.
Best time to visit: October to April.
Things to do:
- Visit the Rameshwaram Temple.
- Visit the beautiful Dhanushkodi Temple and beach. Although some natural calamity destroyed the temple, it is still a wonderful place to go to.
- The glass boat ride at Pamban Beach is a must do. You can see the exotic marine life up close through the glass surface of the boat.
