The Andaman & Nicobar Islands are a veritable Garden of Eden and a naturalist's heaven. The clean environment, roads, greenery as well as unpolluted fresh air attract all nature lovers. The tropical rain forests and the clear water of Bay of Bengal are the home of a vast collection of plant, animal and marine life. Topographically the islands are hilly in places fringed with coconut palm, covered with tropical jungle and interspersed with flat stretches of crescent shaped beaches. Adventure tourism like trekking, island camping, snorkelling, scuba diving and other water sports are the real attractions. A marvellous mix of nature's most precious delights, the Andaman & Nicobar Islands are a once in a lifetime holiday experience. 

Floating in splendid isolation, cast off the Indian mainland is the archipelago of 572 emerald islands, islets and rocks known as Andaman & Nicobar Islands. It’s a veritable Garden of Eden and a naturalist's heaven. The tropical evergreen rain forests, beautiful silver sandy beaches, serpentine mangrove-lines creeks, marine life abounding in rare species of plants, animals and corals provide a memorable experience to the tourists.

Cellular Jail tops the list of attractions at Port Blair. It’s a must visit to learn the hardships of freedom fighters (Andaman was then called “Kaalapani” or forbidden land) during the British Era. The islands and the sandy beaches of Andaman like Radha Nagar in Havelock are real exposures of unpolluted nature for an environment lover. At North Bay or Coral Island, the sea is placid and the coral reefs are gorgeously decorated by nature to stun every traveller.
