Bangaram is an island that does justice to all that romantic imaginations. This teardrop shaped piece of land is encircled by creamy sand. The warm, clear, deep waters, of the Indian Ocean with its myriad marine flora and fauna are an irresistible invitation to the scuba diving fraternity of the world. The exquisite coral formations, the large variety and number of coral fish, the angel, the clown, the butterfly, the surgeon, the groupers, not to mention the abundance of the awe some, but harmless sharks, manta rays, sting rays, moray eels and turtles, makes diving here an addictive experience.
And quite important too is the philosophy of preservation of marine life in its state of indigenous purity, where the coral and the shelf are left undisturbed and the fish merely observed. Ne more venturesome however may spy a sleeping nurse shark or the commonly seen grey and the white tipped or play with a friendly turtle. To the sensitive and the romantic embroiled in the cacophony of crowded cities, it offers a memorable escape in to isolation, a moment of harmony with nature experience of quiet beyond anything similar on the mainland. Even in the hottest part of the day, you won’t feel the heat as luxuriant coconut trees shade you from Sun’s rays. For a perfect outing, there are three uninhabited islands in the same atoll, Tinnakara, Parali-I and Parali-II the deep, warm, clear waters of Indian Ocean with its myriad flora and fauna are an irresistible invitation to the scuba diving fraternity of the world.
