How it all started:

My plan to visit Minicoy came to power when I made a friend while exploring Cochin, Kerala in June 2016. Since he was born and brought up in one of the islands of Lakshadweep called Kavaratti and has been to almost all of them, his stories easily convinced me to plan a trip. After learning about the islands, I found myself more keen towards Minicoy. The reason being, Lakshadweep’s islands are uniquely placed. Nine of them is on the northern side and only one lies far away and stands alone towards the southern side and that one is Minicoy.

1) Kulukki Sarbath Special of Shajikka;

This Cochin special drink, which was once upon a time exclusive only to Cochin, is a spin off of the famous Nannari Sarbath which is famous all around Kerala. As famous as the Kulukki is, it is nowadays widely available at almost all outlets close to the beaches and especially around the vicinity of Marine Drive.
