The island has a population of less than 5000 people and is only 15sqkm in area, with a fragile ecosystem that balances tourism and resources. Some would argue that this balance has already been lost and that the island's natural state is threatened to a point that continued inhabitation may be impossible. Keeping the island's identity a secret accept to ticket holders is important to protect this ecosystem as has been advised by locally based NGO representatives.ACTIVITIES ON THE ISLANDThe island's natural beauty offers:-White sand, kilometre long beaches untouched by human developmentExcellent snorkelling, diving and shore/sea fishing possible throughout the dayJungle walks, secret beach hikes and many places to exploreRestaurants offering locally grown/caught ingredients and prepared fresh.FACTS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKINGdeg A visa is required by most foreign nationals visiting Indiadeg There are mosquitos on the island so please bring protection.

People and Food: We are very grateful to local businesses, authorities, individuals and the island itself for the opportunity to come together and celebrate the power of community action in this extraordinary place that we call The Ninth Island. The island has less than 5000 inhabitants, limited internet access and the majority of inhabitants are reliant on either the island's agricultural production, or the daily flux of mainly Honeymooning, Indian tourists who stay in guest houses or a small number of larger resorts. There is always fish available at the market in the morning, as well as rice, flour, potatoes and a variety of vegetables and fruit. Banana and Papaya can normally be eaten all year round. There are a few options of South Indian food (Dosa / Idly) and everywhere offers chai, coffee, lassi, fresh local fruit, seafood curries and grill, vegetarian island Indian food as well as pancakes, egg dishes and fresh pasta. Most soft drinks are available and there is currently a shop selling alcohol. The island siestas between midday and 4/5pm but most shops are open again until 9pm in the evening. NATURAL BEAUTY: Much of the island has no direct road access but untouched jungle and beaches can be explored on foot with local guides. Diving and snorkelling are also popular - the coral is in a good condition and the variety of sea life is impressive. Tides play a role in activities - high tide being best for swimming. Sea or shore fishing for dinner is also popular. Biting insects do appear for short periods of dusk and dawn on windless beaches and inland jungle (sandflies and mosquitos) but you can protect yourself with Odomos / Citronella products and loose clothing. At night you can hear the crickets, frogs and waves - stargazing without any light pollution is best BUDGET --> 1L STILL WATER: 20-30 Rs, CHAI 20-40 Rs, VEG CURRY WITH RICE 200-300 Rs, 4KM RICKSHAW/TUKTUK150-200 Rs, AMERICAN SPIRIT TOBACCO (LIMITED AVAIL) 650-750 Rs
