Andaman Islands

Andaman Islands - remote yet gorgeous hideaway in the Indian Ocean

As an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Islands, officially referred to as the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, lie between India and Myanmar. The islands are renowned worldwide as a refuge for the last paleolithic people without contact to outsiders on the planet. The location and the gentle waters that surround them make the Andaman Islands a coveted yachting location with azure blue waters and pristine beaches set against fantastic landscapes and flame-and-purple sunsets.

The Andamans are home to gorgeous and lush forests that have remained largely unspoilt and untouched by human intervention. The coastline is often lined by fantastic sways of mangroves that harbor an unbelievable variety of lifeforms, ranging from exotic birds to majestic saltwater crocodiles. Sport enthusiasts will love the great opportunities for hiking through the gorgeous nature, the most challenging spot being Saddle Peak at 732 m on the North Andaman Island.

While the archipelago comprises some 300 islands, only a dozen or so are open to tourists, Havelock Island by far being the most popular for its beaches and diving at locations such as the gorgeous ‘lagoon’ at Neils Cove, a gem of sheltered sugary-white sand and crystalline water. The largest town and the capital of the Andaman Islands is Port Blair. It lies on the beautiful eastern coast of South Andaman Island and is the main harbor and entry point to the islands, ideal to set out and explore. Famous for the historic Cellular Jail and other small islands which were once home to British colonists, it is also close to the gorgeous Ross island.

Only a 20 minute boat ride from Port Blair, the island is packed with scenic ruins of Victorian English settlements, a unique sight. A far-flung location in the middle of nowhere, the Andaman Islands are still the ideal place to get away from it all. Enjoy the experience of a destination that has retained some of the most ancient cultures on the planet whilst being accessible and alluring to well-seasoned travelers.
