Lakshadweep IslandsI will be touring around India for 5 weeks. we end in Kochi and want to unwind with some chill beach time. we are looking at Laksdadweep Islands. I am reading about restrictions and court battles. What is the current situation about traveling there. we will be there early Dec 13. I see resorts listed but unclear if they are operational. Any thoughts on this or other relaxing beach time would be helpful

5Haven't been to Lakshadweep ... but looked into it when I was in Kochi fall of 2011 ... Went to the tourist office where they booked the boats ... talked to them, looked at a boat, talked to some people who had been there - looked dodgy at best. Flights were very expensive - the boat looked like a ride from hell.
The Anadamans are beautiful ... I flew from Chennai ... you can also fly from Calcutta ... or take a boat. I flew. I met someone who took the boat ... it's a long Indian boat ride.
Mamallapuram is a not a really good option for some classic 'beach time' in my opinion .. it's a small touristy fishing village with some not so great, dirty, coarse sand beaches and a rough surf ...
It's no comparison to what the Andamans have to offer (and Lakshadweep from the photos)
