About Andaman Islands

A former British penal colony now famed for its white sandy beaches and world class diving. This archipelago, floating amidst the Bay of Bengal, is closer to Myanmar than India and is home to a native Negrito population that still has anthropologists baffled. Our pick of the best places to stay in the Andaman Islands is the epitome of laid back luxury, and a perfect base from which to enjoy both beach and sea.

Havelock, by far the biggest and most populated island, boasts the ‘No 7 Best Beach in Asia’ as well as the most reputable diving schools and luxurious hotels.

Attractions in The Andaman Islands:

  • A haven for divers. Spot turtles, Giant Grouper, Mobula Rays and much more. There are plenty of dive schools but Bare Foot is certainly the most reputable.
  • A former British prison, Cellular Jail National Memorial is an interesting and informative insight into the recent history of the island and its less than idyllic past.
  • Neil and Ross Islands are small enough that they can be explored by bike.

For true escapism

  • Barefoot at Havelock provides both eco luxury and excellent diving. Exactly what travellers come here for!
