Andaman & Nicobar Islands

Been there recently?

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a cluster of about 300 sun-toasted islands. These islands are famous for their stunning white sand and palm-lined beaches. These islands, which are becoming more and more well-liked as a year-round travel destination, offer a diverse range of wildlife, a stunning marine ecosystem, and tropical evergreen forests. These islands are a tropical paradise that entices travellers from distant lands with their turquoise waters and shimmering white beaches surrounded by mangrove forests and primitive jungles. The Andaman Group contains the majority of these islands, of which only 28 are inhabited. The Nicobar Islands are made up of roughly 22 main islands, 10 of which are populated. The tropical evergreen rain forests are teeming with marine life, including rare species of plants, animals, and corals, thanks to the abundant south-west and north-east monsoons, making it an ecological haven. It has been estimated that these islands are home to up to 270 bird species and subspecies, 106 of which are endemic. The islands are home to one biosphere reserve, nine national parks, and about 96 wildlife sanctuaries. Water sports, hiking, camping, nature trails, and scuba diving are some of the many activities that visitors to these islands can enjoy.

Port Blair
The Andaman and Nicobar islands’ capital, Port Blair, has a lot of environmentally friendly beach resorts lining its winding coastline. These provide a variety of options for sightseeing, sea cruises, swimming, snorkelling, and boating. Port Blair serves as a gateway to the picturesque Andaman and Nicobar Islands, with its silver sand beaches and rich historical past. It is a calm, serene location with crystal-clear waters and a pleasant climate.
Neil Island
Neil Island is a tiny and beautiful gem, located 37 kilometres south of the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. This island is ideal for travellers seeking seclusion because of its unexplored coral reefs, magnificent biodiversity, deserted sandy beaches, and tropical forests and vegetation. Neil Island, known as the “vegetable bowl of the Andaman,” is known for its productive fruit and vegetable farming due to its pleasant climate. Water sports activities for thrill-seekers include scuba diving and jet-skiing. Natural rock formations and coral viewing from a glass bottom boat are available for those who enjoy the outdoors.
Ross Island
Located directly across from Port Blair is this tiny island that covers less than one square kilometre. From 1858 until 1941, this island housed the British capital before the Japanese took control and turned it into a POW camp. The chief commissioner’s residence, the cathedral, and the cemetery for British citizens are the main draws. Except on Wednesdays, there are ferries from Port Blair to Ross Island from the Aberdeen jetty. Ross Island was named after the marine surveyor, Daniel Ross. In December 2018, the island’s name was changed to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island.
Little Andaman Island
The Little Andaman Island, south of South Andaman Island, is 120 kilometres from Port Blair, the territory’s capital, and features white sand beaches and magnificent waterfalls. It is part of the Little Andaman Group and is separated from the Great Andaman’s Rutland Archipelago by the Duncan Passage. The hub of the island, Hutbay in Little Andaman, also serves as its point of entry and departure. The evergreen rainforest contains the milky-white waterfall known as White Surf Waterfall, which is a great place for a picnic. A trip to Whisper Wave, another waterfall, involves hiking through the stunning biodiversity of the Andaman rainforests.
