    Andrott Island is a beautiful island in Lakshadweep. It is also known as Androth Island which is a small, inhabited island in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep, a group of 36 coral islands scattered in the Arabian Sea off the western coast of India. It has a distance of 293 km west of the city of Kochi.


    LONE BOAT AT THE ISLANDThis place is the largest island in all of Lakshadweep. Not only that; densely populated Andrott Island, stands apart from all the other islands also because it is the only island standing with a west-east orientation and it is not a tourist destination with packages as of now, due to a lack of infrastructure facilities, which has been taken into consideration. This Island has a very famous lighthouse. It also houses the tomb of Saint Ubaidullah at the Jumaat mosque; another important place in Andrott is the ruins of a Buddhist site. Since there are thick coconut groves, the island flourishes with Andretti Island.


    This Island had been known as ‘Divanduru’ in the past, a name that is found in some old French maps. It belongs to the Laccadive Islands subgroup and it had been historically a part of the Arakkal Kingdom.
