Unbelievably picturesque, the Andaman Islands shimmer 851 miles off India’s eastern coast in the Bay of Bengal. With startlingly blue water, white-sands and lush shores clad in jungle and mangrove trees, holidays to the Andaman Islands introduce you to a remote tropical paradise.
Scattered in one of the world’s most far-flung corners, the Andaman Islands encompass over 500 islands - the tips of a submerged mountain range. Adding intrigue, the majority of the islands are off-limits to tourists - to protect the ancient indigenous tribes that still inhabit them and to preserve the rare biodiversity.

Here, you’ll spend your days lounging in elegant beachside villas, exploring wildlife sanctuaries and kayaking through azure waters. Find yourself utterly spellbound by dazzling purple sunsets that set fire to the sky each dusk.
