The Andaman Islands, part of the union territories of India, is made up of over 550 Islands, islets and rocks, situated in the southeastern part of the Bay of Bengal, Approximately 800 km northwest of Phuket.
These islands remain relatively isolated and only 26 are actually inhabited. Some islands are strictly out-of-bounds, like North Sentinel, where the indigenous tribes are among the last people to remain totally untouched by the modern world.
Notable for deserted beaches, crystal clear waters, inland forests, and India’s only active volcano, the Andaman Islands are also a scubadiver’s paradise: with deep vertical wall dives, whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, Dugong, and very good underwater visibility. The weather between December and April is characteristically dry, with clear blue skies, and refreshing sea breezes.
