The Andaman Islands
Updated: Mar 5, 2020
Located in the Bay of Bengal, about 620 miles from mainland India are actually the peaks of a submerged mountain range which runs from Myanmar to Indonesia.
Pristine white sand beaches and impassable jungles, the islands are scattered like glistening pearls in the Andaman Sea, the ultimate destination at the end of an Indian holiday.
The remote Andaman Islands are geographically closer to Myanmar and Indonesia than mainland India, and are populated by both South and Southeast Asian settlers, and (sadly threatened) indigenous tribal communities.
Those that do make the journey here will find the best of India’s beaches and some of the finest diving and surfing in Asia.
