The Andaman Islands are a series of tiny Indian archipelagos in the Bay of Bengal. These roughly 300 small islands are famous for their white sand beaches, palm-lined beaches and beautiful tropical rainforests.
In addition to its natural beauty, the Andaman Island is also an indigenous Indian abode. The locals are famous for their hospitality. They offer great food, clean and safe beaches and, most importantly, warm hospitality. However, the tourists can be in for some surprises.
The abodes have been inhabited by several people, most of them descendants of British soldiers who left India after World War II. Some of these people still live on the islands, while the rest of them have migrated to cities and towns. Some of them settled in India as well, while others came to the islands to study, to seek a higher education or to start a business.
Opening Small Restaurants
The abodes are still inhabited by a lot of people today and you may find some of them in the southern areas of the island, especially on the fringes of the mangrove forests and the beaches. Some of them have adapted to modern living by opening small restaurants and shopping malls on the beach.These diving spots are mostly in shallow water and will only require your supervision.
However, the most popular abodes are those in the northern part of the islands. Some of these diving spots are in waters that are too deep for snorkelers and the visibility is excellent, so even if you do not have diving experience, you can still enjoy the scuba diving activities.
Abodes near the beaches will provide excellent snorkelers with some interesting locations and coral reefs. One of the most popular abodes is Kavaratti abode in Gooronliwaddy, where you will see a great variety of coral species like the corallina, abalone and rock rose, as well as some corals like the pink coral.
