Andaman Islands, India

20 Nov

The Andaman Islands are truly paradise on Earth.  Although the journey to these islands may be long and quite possibly stressful, ending up in one of the most remote places on Earth is worth it.  The payoff is a practically deserted island paradise perfect for the nature lover.  Contrast to the energy and chaos throughout most of India, these islands provide a serene escape from the world.  Located in the Bay of Bengal, these islands  offer tranquility, marine and free roaming wildlife, crystal beaches, and lush forests.

Activities on the islands range from snorkeling, scuba diving, trekking through the rainforest, day trips to more remote islands, mingling with local tribes, and even swimming with elephants.

Wikitravel has a great article that describes the culture, islands, and activities, and some safety tips for those interested in visiting the Andaman Islands.

Visitors are required to obtain permits to visit the islands.  It is recommended that travelers request a permit when applying for a visa to India.
