The Andaman Islands is a collection of islands in the Bay of Bengal, between the India and Thailand. These 572 tropical islands offer superb diving, indigenous tribal cultures and white sandy beaches, Havelock being the most popular. They are not widely visited and are off the mainstream tourist trail: beautiful beaches, thick forests and untouched coral make this a truly compelling destination.
Flights land into Port Blair from Chennai in South India or Calcutta in North East India. You often need to overnight in Port Blair on arrival prior to travelling to one of the outlying island by boat the following day.
