Andaman

Active Dive, Hike and Leisure Island Holidays in Andaman’s

White sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters, unending views of the ocean, green forest cover, rich aquatic life, all completely cut away from the real world—the Andaman Islands are a perfect place to ramble around or simply relax on its sun-kissed beaches.

The Andaman Islands has some of the very best aquatic life in the Indian Ocean. If you are one for the outdoors, you can scuba dive, snorkel, and hike through forest trails to secluded beaches. Many of the islands are surrounded by fringing reefs, often several hundred meters wide and separated from the shore by a lagoon of similar width. The islands are well-known for its unusual dive spots.

HISTORY

…………………………..

The words ‘Andaman’ and ‘Nicobar’ are words borrowed from the Malay language. ‘Andaman’ is derived from the Malay word for the Hindu deity Hanuman, and ‘Nicobar’ means ‘the land of naked people. The Andaman archipelago is an oceanic continuation of the Burmese Arakan Yoma range in the North and of the Indonesian archipelago in the South. The original native tribes inhabiting these islands mainly belong to the “Jarawa” tribe, fondly known as the “adivasi”. They are less than 500 in number and do not interact with outsiders. The word ‘Jarawa’ translates to “people of the earth” or “hostile people” in the Bea language. Aka-Bea is an extinct language used by the Great Andamanese. Today, a large part of the civilized human settlements in the Island consists of people from Bengal, Vishakhapatnam, and Tamil Nadu.

 




NATURAL DIVERSITY

…………………………..

The Andaman islands are a treasure trove of natural history, both on land and underwater. Underwater, the islands support vast coral reefs and colourful aquatic life. The clear blue waters add to a scintillating experience. Snorkeling and scuba diving are great ways to explore the region and learn about aquatic and reef life. On land, the islands play host to a dense tropical rainforest that is well fed by tropical monsoon rains that sweep past the archipelago. The islands are teeming with avian life. A great active holiday in the Andamans must include hiking trips to saddle peak or through forests that bring you out to quaint beaches that are remote and usually uninhabited.

 




LOCAL EXPERIENCES

…………………………..

The Andamans’ greatest draw is the outdoors; pristine white beaches, turquoise blue waters, tropical forests with trails, underwater life, all make for a fantastic holiday that will cut you out from the daily rut of life. A typical day at the islands would involve hiking to secluded beaches, taking a dip in the water or snorkelling. Out at sea, on can take a boat out for game fishing and scuba diving to remote dive sites and explore wrecks. All diving sports in the Andamans is concentrated around Havelock and Neil Islands.

 

Unventured can take you on a well-rounded experience of the Andamans that combines, hiking in the forest, birdwatching, snorkelling sessions, some scuba diving, and some game fishing if that interests you. We also organise scuba dive tours to select dive sites and organise beginner certificate courses in scuba diving. It’s a grand way to get to know the spirited islands.
