When Christopher Columbus discovered the West Indies, he thought he had discovered India. If he had discovered the Andaman Islands he might have thought he had discovered the Caribbean! These islands are quite unique to India and much more like the Caribbean islands than they are the rest of India. These share another characteristic with the West Indies: beautiful beaches, enviroment and a sad past.
Visit the Andaman for an experience of paradise, but dont forget to stop in Port Blair to remember how these islands were also a prison.
Experiences on the Andaman Islands
Wear a snorkel and explore the turquoise waters of the Andamans with a gentle elephant as your companion. Rajan, the elephant, loves the water and will monopolise your snorkeling time and distract you away from the marine life.
