Bangaram

The Bangaram island is one of the finest tourist spots in the country, with its idyllic palm grove and the smooth sands caressed by the mulitcoloured sea waves. It is developing into a tourist place of international fame. This 128 acre island lies about 8kms north of Agati. To its east about 2 1/2 km away is Tinnakara and further east is Parali connected by a sand back during the dry season. Bangaram is enclosed by a scenic lagoon about 10kms long by 6 km wide. The lagoon is very deep here and there are great patches and plateaus of coral growing up to the surface, giving it a memorable view. From Agati it is an hours boat ride to Bangaram.
