The problem is its accessibility. You should spend much time and efforts to reach the island. No worries. It won’t be a waste.

Exploring Padar Island
The best thing in Padar Island is its landscape. There are many high hills here. Due to this reason, more people come to the island for trekking. Even though it takes much energy, it won’t be a wasteful effort. From the top of the hills, you can see a clear sky, beaches, and nearby attractions. The atmosphere is awesome. You can take this opportunity for photography, relaxing, or even painting! Padar Island has higher hills than nearby islands, actually. No wonder, it is more popular among trekkers.
