Best Places for Snorkeling in India


One of the things that I have always wanted to do is snorkeling, but the biggest issue is that I fear deep water dives. Now, that’s me. And, I don’t think everyone doesn’t prefer it. Being an avid traveller, I have visited some really great snorkeling places in India. So, here are my picks.

Tarkarli, Maharashtra

Tarkarli beach in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra is considered one of the most suitable diving locations in India. Rich clear waters, tropical plants and marine creatures, you will have everything to soothe your snorkeling urge.

Kadmat, Lakshadweep

From crabs and hawks to turtles and other marine life, you can experience breathtaking views inside clear crystal water. You can also Bangaram and Agatti if you want to have scuba diving or snorkeling experience in places near Kadmat.

Havelock Island, Andaman and Nicobar

Now, if you are looking forward to snorkeling and you didn’t visit Andaman and Nicobar, then I don’t have a clue what you are doing. Havelock Island is considered as the best place in entire region. It is advised to visit the place between December to April.
