Andaman & Nicobar
Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a group of 580+ islands that are located in the Bay of Bengal. Though the islands are part of Union Territory of India, they are geographically closer to Thailand and Myanmar than to mainland India. While Andaman Islands are abundant with natural beauty and open for tourism, the Nicobar Islands cannot be visited by tourists. Thirteen of the 24 islands that are part of Nicobar Islands are inhibited and marked as tribal reserve, and are unaware of the human development in the rest of the world!
The waters around Andaman and Nicobar Islands are very clean. The beaches are very picturesque: while few are white sand beaches and others are golden sand beaches. Andaman and Nicobar Islands have numerous options for water sports and are conducted across most of the islands that are often visited.
