    Alcohol is not available in Rameshwaram since it is a temple town and a religious hub.

    Most shops and restaurants here accept only cash, apart from the large franchises and shopping malls.

    Thea beaches in Rameshwaram are rocky, and the sea is generally rough in the area. It is inadvisable to swim if one is not an experienced swimmer. However, at Agnitheertham one can dive in for a short swim or a dip before visiting the temples.

    Ideally, it would not take any more than 3 to 4 days to explore Rameshwaram entirely.

    The best time to visit Rameshwaram is from November to March or mid-April.
