A tropical paradise in the truest sense of the term, this archipelago is located about 1,000 km off the eastern coast of India in the Bay of Bengal and a Union Territory of India. Out of total 572 islands, 38 are inhabited. Port Blair is the capital with only one airport in Andaman. Tourists can visit the Andaman group of islands, but the Nicobari islands are restricted from tourism activities to avoid causing any disturbance to the tribals, who constitute the majority of the population residing there. Picturesque beaches, crystal clear water, and a bit of history make Andaman the perfect choice for a laid-back, enjoyable vacation, with long treks, lazing around on the island backwaters and for the more adventurous, deep sea diving. From the multicultural town of Port Blair, pristine white beaches of Neil and Havelock Islands to the limestone caves of Diglipur, Andaman offers something to every tourist.
