Andaman And Nicobar Islands

Located to the east of India, the Andaman and Nicobar islands float remotely in the Bay of Bengal. Of nearly 600 islands, only nine are available for foreign travelers to visit, as aboriginal tribes still live amongst the islands. Many tribes remain un-contacted or resist contact with the outside world, the most well known being North Sentinel Island which is considered a sovereign area under Indian protection. The islands have a primarily tropical environment with rainforests as well as deciduous and evergreen forests, mangroves, and grasslands that are rich with a diversity of wildlife.  Visitors will fly into Port Blair, an island town with historical attractions and British-colonial heritage, and gateway to the other pristine islands. The main attraction is the beaches and scuba diving, especially on Havelock Island and Neil Island, which harbor clear water lagoons, white sandy beaches, and coral reefs.

Beaches

Long stretches of sandy shores fringe most of the Andaman & Nicobar islands, beckoning visitors to its idyllic beaches. One can blissfully enjoy swimming in warm clear waters of emerald lagoons and sunbathing on a number of white powder beaches.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving

Havelock island is home to a variety of diving sites with rich marine life, such as Seduction Point, Aquarium, Lighthouse, Pilot Reef, Mac Point, Minerva Ledge, and Turtle Bay. The ideal dive season is from December to May. Due to the calm and clear waters, snorkeling is also a great way to see schools of fish living amongst the coral beds.

Bird Watching

Home to both aquatic and shore birds, the islands have an abundant variety of birds, many of which are endemic. Birdwatchers can fill their time visiting the numerous reserves and protected forests, from tropical rainforest to mangrove ecosystems, where these rare avian species thrive.

Kayaking

Calm creeks make safe waterways for easy and enjoyable kayaking through the islands’ waterways and mangroves.
