Administered by India, the 300 or so Andaman Islands are the
highest peaks of a submerged mountain range that stretches from
Sumatra in the south to the Irawaddy delta in the north.
The Andaman Islands have everything you could desire from an
adventurous yachting destination. There are literally hundreds of
deserted islands to explore, each one seemingly more spectacular
than the last. The beaches are magnificently pristine. The
snorkelling and scuba diving is amongst the best in the world with
an almost untouched marine ecosystem.
There is a live volcano, thousands of square miles of untouched
jungle, exotic and thriving wildlife and primitive hunter-gatherer
tribes. The fishing is amongst the best in the world and the
Andaman Islands are also starting to develop a superb reputation as
a frontier surfing destination where the reef breaks have never
been surfed before. They were declared a World Heritage Site in
The very best way to explore and dive the islands is by
liveaboard but there are hotels we can recommend so if you want to
go somewhere that is about as remote as you can get then the
Andaman Islands may be the place for you.
