“With shimmering turquoise waters fringed by primeval jungle, fantastic diving, and sugar-white, sun-toasted beaches melting under flame-and-purple sunsets, the far-flung Andaman Islands is the perfect Indian escape” – That’s how the Lonely Planet describes these islands, sprinkled across the Bay of Bengal, about 620 miles from the mainland of India.
Of the archipelago’s 572 islands, only 36 are inhabited and a small selection is open to travelers. With splendid beaches and diving, Havelock is by far the most popular and ultimately gorgeous! The coral reefs are still colorful and prolific despite some damage from climate change, with 89% of India’s coral diversity found here. Radhanagar Beach, on Havelock Island, is considered one of the best beaches in Asia. A crescent-shaped lick of sand that goes as far as the eye can see, tightly bordered by jungles – you’ll surely feel like you’re lost in paradise! If you’ve always longed for exploring the rugged islands and live a beach life for a couple of days in a pocket-friendly budget, then now is the time!
