Activities In Rameshwaram
Rameshwaram is a temple town in Tamil Nadu, home to innumerable small temples and other religious sites. However, that is not all that the town is famed for. There are several other things to do in Rameshwaram, which can be an enjoyable experience for tourists visiting it. If wondering what to do in Rameshwaram, read on to find out exactly how one can spend their time here.
Although not many people are aware of this, but there are several great places to indulge in adventure sports in Rameshwaram. From snorkeling to jet skiing, from kayaking to riding in water balls across the waves, Rameshwaram is a great place to enjoy all these and more. There are special stretches of beaches, as well as adventure sports clubs, where one can hire boats, jet skis, oars, scuba gear and various other equipment that might be needed to enjoy a bout of watersports. These places also book special packages that let people enjoy a set amount of sports for a pre-specified cost.
One of the most popular activities in Rameshwaram is enjoying a glass boat ride at Pamban Bridge. With lots of vibrant corals and amazing marine life to see, this is understandably a popular activity for people from walks of life. Needless to say, this option is a boon for those who are unable to swim, to explore the underwater life. Spending time at the Sea World Aquarium is a popular way to spend time, and one of the most enjoyable activities in Rameshwaram, especially for kids. This place is home to a host of colorful marine life such as sea lizards, clown fishes, octopuses, prawns, sharks and snakes among several others. Spending time at the beaches is also obviously one of the most popular ways to relax in Rameshwaram, especially for tourists who have been on a sightseeing spree that mostly takes them to temples.
Apart from these water-related activities, one can also indulge in enriching this Rameshwaram trip with a look at the historic monuments here, such as the Kalam House Museum, which beautifully documents the illustrious life of India’s most beloved President. A walk on the Indira Gandhi Road Bridge is also a must do, especially for the gorgeous views. The chances of clicking the most amazing wind-shipped selfies can only be a bonus here.
One can also enjoy shopping in the local markets here, for spices and junk jewelry, for small idols of gods and goddesses as well as handicrafts made out of sea shells. One can also purchase wooden handicrafts here, such as small boats and masks.
Clearly, even though most of the Rameshwaram India points of interest include places of religious interest, with even the sightseeing taking a slightly mythological turn when faced with visiting places such as Ram Setu, one can find many other things to do here to spend time. On a Rameshwaram special trip, make sure to plan the itinerary in a way to include all the above things to do in Rameshwaram.

Dissentflutter's 3 days trip to RameshwaramWorst hotel and worst food never ever suggest anyone no hot water , stinky room
Sauviks's 3 days trip to RameshwaramWhile everything was planned properly, we had to face a last minute hazzard due to enquires put by us during the planning phase and a driver (Venkat) from Savaari, who managed our details online, contacted us early on the morning on 25/10, a day before our trip was scheduled and we kept on communicating with him since he introduced himself as a driver from the agency, who we thought is HolidayPackage, our agent. It was informed to the agent (Neha, co-ordinator) that we got the driver details but she was casual enough or overheard us and totally ignored the fact the they have not yet provided us any detail but we were alredy co-ordinating with a driver. We ultimately got the driver details from the agent in the evening and before we took a note of the details the driver (Syed) called us but we did not get into a discussion assuming that he may not be a genuine one as we were already in discussion with a driver (Venkat) whom we thought was from Holiday Package. Now we were standing at a place where we were not sure who the driver was and Neha advised us not to continue speaking to the other driver (Venkat). Venkat called us directly but we managed to bypass him and denied availing his services. The owner of the agency, Abhinav, ultimately managed to arrange the driver but not before I ended up calling multiple parties who called me in the meantime, addressing themselves as the car supplier. After all these, the driver showed up on time on 26/10 and things mostly went as per plan. Hotel rooms were not as expected. Tripwise, it was good, enjoyed thoroughly.
