Being separated from the Indian mainland, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands have developed their own vibrant culture. When visiting the islands one will notice the sheer beauty of nature and want to just never leave this tranquil world.
Chidiya Tapu Beach is famous for it's sunsets and bird-watching is also done here.
If Chidiya Tapu beach is famous for its sunsets then Sitapur beach is famous for its sunrises. It's also the rare beach in Andaman that is great for swimming.
During the British rule, Indian Freedom Fighters were kept imprisoned on the islands. Kalapani Museum tells the story of these prisoners as well as India's freedom struggle.
Kala Pathar Beach is lined with black stones (Kala Pathar means black stone). A calm beach, it is notable for how the water seems to change into different shades of blue.
The Limestone Caves on Baratang Island are scenic caves. The journey to get there is scenic too with a motor boat ride and mangroves filled with the local tribal people.
Guitar Island is so named because seen from above the island's shape resembles a guitar. This is an under-explored part of the island chain and is totally worth your while.
Saddle Peak is the highest peak on the Island chain. The hike to reach to the top takes up all day but it's worth it for all the natural flora and fauna you encounter on the hike.
Bharatpur Beach is famous for swimming and water sports. However, a must here is the glass bottom boat ride.
