With coral reefs, glistening sapphire waters, the sparkling sand shores, emerald green mangrove forests and the blues possible skies. God must be an artist. This place is a fantastic fusion of history and natural beauty. In recent years, there has been a surge in popularity of these islands, and these once remote spots have come to the forefront.

Getting into the backwaters of Andamans is really fun, but at some waters here itching might exist which can be prevented by rubbing cut onion there.
