DIVING IN MINICOY ISLANDS LAKSHADWEEP
17.12.2012 - 25.12.2012
A crescent shaped island, it has a huge lagoon on the western side. It also has a tiny islet called Viringili on the southern tip of the island. The island is set apart from other islands as its culture, language and tradition are different from other islands. Each village has a village house beautifully decorated and maintained. Mahl is the spoken language. MINICOY is an important centre for tuna fishing.

The Light House of the island is one of the oldest and was constructed in 1885. It has a 20-bedded resort for accommodating divers and other tourists.

Minicoy is the only island in Lakshadweep having three large shipwrecks believed to be that of S.S Hoechst and other ships, within 8 meters depth on the island reef. It is believed that these shipwreck initiated construction of lighthouse in 1885.
These wrecks are virtual underwater museums and fish species found here are larger than average normal size found elsewhere perhaps due to consumption of Ferrous of the wrecks.
