Some 850 miles east of the Indian subcontinent, the sprawling Andaman Islands are some of the remotest places on earth. Around two dozen of its 300 islands lie uninhabited in the hazy Bay of Bengal while others harbour some of the world’s most isolated hunter-gatherer tribes whose territories are strictly off limits. The parts you can explore still feel like virgin territory and are blisteringly beautiful to boot, with sand so clean it squeaks underfoot and rainforests that tumble into electric blue sea.
A far-out sense of adventure can be quenched by a series of activities that immerse you into nature. Hike through lofty gurjan trees to sparkling white beaches decorated in driftwood. In the deeper blue you can snorkel and dive over rich coral reef sheltering huge, silky manta rays, drifting turtles and kaleidoscopic parrot fish. There are few places in the world where you can kayak at night through the rhitzomatic mangroves lit by bright constellations and bioluminescent plankton. But there’s something to be said about surrendering to the natural beauty even if it’s just lounging under the palms to the cadence of exotic birds.
