Ridiculously exotic! Anand Mahindra’s vision of India’s paradise island. Watch the video

If you love to travel, you should start following businessman Anand Mahindra. The industrialist often searches for exotic travel destinations and makes a point of sharing the same with his Twitter followers. This time, Mahindra talked about a place called Minicoy, an atoll surrounded by coral in Lakshadweep which is only 11 km long.

Away from most of Lakshadweep Island, Minicoy is much closer to the Maldives than parts of India. Mahindra on Twitter said today: This is ridiculously exotic! Why didn’t I think of vacationing here before? Has anyone been there? If you have any, please share photos of your visit.

According to the Incredible India website, the crescent-shaped Minicoy Island floats alongside one of the largest lagoons in Lakshadweep. Touching the southernmost part of the islands, Minicoy covers an area of ​​4.8 km², making it the second largest of the group.

The scenic beauty of the island is mesmerizing and its pristine blue waters, coconut palm fringed shores and mirror-like inland lakes all culminate in a heavenly setting.

Minicoy is distinguished from the northern islands by its fairly lively culture. A variety of folk dances are performed here including lava, thaara, dandi, fuli and bandiya.

The island uses colorful and beautiful boats called jahadhoni for boat races and for entertaining dignitaries. It also has a very old lighthouse that was built in 1885. Visitors are allowed to climb to the top and see stunning views of the surroundings.
