Trip to Red Skin Island

About the activity

Take a long drive to the Wandoor Jetty passing by lush green forests, and flourishing mangroves before you set sail to Red Skin Island. Explore the abounding beauty of the plastic-free island and spend a relaxing day at the beach admiring its pristine water and the sound of the sea. Spend your day swimming in the ocean and exploring corals that start at a mere depth of 3-4 metres – this trip to Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park is everything divine and more.
