Andrott or Androth Island, is the largest island in all of Lakshadweep. Not only that; densely populated Andrott Island , stands apart from all the other islands also due to the fact that it is the only island standing with a west-east orientation. It is not a tourist destination with packages as of now, due to lack of infrastructure facilities, which has been taken into consideration.
Andrott Island has a lighthouse that is very famous and it also houses the tomb of Saint Ubaidullah at the Jumaat mosque; another important place in Andrott is ruins of Buddhist site. He is said to have brought the Islam culture here. Since there are thick coconut groves, the island flourishes with Andretti Island.
