Silversea Expedition Cruises A Cheriyam, Lakshadweep Islands

Cheriyam, Lakshadweep Islands

Lakshadweep is a diver’s dream, with excellent visibility and a plethora of marine life living on undisturbed coral reefs. Comprising a string of 36 palm-covered, white sand-skirted coral islands 300 km off the coast of Kerala, Lakshadweep is as stunning as it is isolated. Only 10 of these islands are inhabited, mostly with Sunni Muslim fishermen, and foreigners are only allowed to stay on a few of these. View more
