January to March is the breeding time for the birds and this bird sanctuary here in Pitti is filled with great excitement at this time. The rocky terrain here makes it impossible to land here directly. There is a high storm beach on the northern part of the island. In the year 1965, there was a fierce storm which hit this island rendering the entire coastal shore on the eastern shore with a line of coral boulders. There is a shallow lagoon on the western side which is in the process of getting filled up. This lagoon is the one that prevents boats from entering it. During low tide, there is absolutely no way boats could enter this region. The central portion of the island is a solid substratum, where lime stones have been cut for the purpose of building.

With fertile plains and thick plantations, the ambience here in summer is a little hot so it is preferred to come here at other times. Even if you do visit in the summer season then you could sleep on the cubicles that are placed in the beaches. These cubicles made of cadjan leaves are great shelters in this part of the beautiful islands of Lakshadweep. You can see the line of cubicles when you come to this region.
