Best Places to Visit in Andaman and Nicobar Islands
The union territory of India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands consists of two groupings of islands near the southeastern border of the Bay of Bengal. Between Myanmar (Burma) and the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the peaks of a submerged mountain range, the Andaman Islands, and its southern neighbours, the Nicobar Islands, create an arc spanning 620 miles (1,000 km) southward. The arc marks the western border of the Bay of Bengal and the eastern border of the Andaman Sea. The territorial capital is Port Blair (on South Andaman Island).
With hundreds of hotels dispersed throughout the region, tourism is a developing business in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The majority of visitors come from India’s mainland. Remains of the British colonial government, such as the Andaman Cellular Jail (finished in 1906) at Port Blair, where the Indian rebel Vinayak Damodar (Vir) Savarkar was held in the early half of the twentieth century, are popular historical sites. Ecotourists and trekkers are drawn to the territory’s natural environment, which includes several parks, gardens, and sanctuaries.
In the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Islands are an Indian archipelago. The palm-lined, white-sand beaches, mangroves, and tropical rainforests of these nearly 300 islands are well-known. Divers and snorkelers go to coral reefs that sustain marine life such as sharks and rays. The most isolated islands, many of which are off-limits to visitors, are home to indigenous Andaman Islanders. Despite their bad image during colonial times, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are now one of India’s most popular tourist destinations. The islands are known for their tranquil white sand beaches and crystal clear blue seas.
