Visit Andaman and Nicobar Islands

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a group of over 500 small islands located in the Bay of Bengal between India and Myanmar. The archipelago is home to some of India's most beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, and diverse wildlife. Popular tourist destinations include Havelock Island for its lively beach life, Ross and Smith Islands for stunning sunsets, Cellular Jail in Port Blair for its rich historical significance, and Neil Island for its breathtaking ocean views.

An interesting historical fact about the Andaman & Nicobar Islands is that they were once known as Kalapani or "Black Water" due to the iron ore deposits found on the island's seabed. During British colonial rule it was used as a penal settlement where Indian freedom fighters were exiled during India's struggle for independence in 1947. Today it is an important naval base with strategic importance in South East Asia.
