The Andaman Islands form an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal between India, to the west, and Myanmar, to the north and east. Most are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands which are a Union Territory of India, while a small number in the north of the archipelago, including the Coco Islands, belong to Myanmar.
Places to visit
With its turquoise blue waters and powdery white sands, Radhanagar Beach repeatedly features on lists of globally ranked beaches, rated Asia’s best beach in 2004 by TIME Magazine.
This pristine beach finds its place on the much-adored Havelock Island, a tourist’s paradise and the largest of the islands present in this series of water-locked land masses.
The Cellular Jail, also known as ‘Kala Pani’ is an old colonial prison situated in Port Blair, the capital of Andaman and Nicobar islands.
Today, the Cellular Jail is a solemn reminder of all the struggles that our freedom fighters fought through to win the independence of the country, and is an imperative part of our history that ought to be upheld.
