Scattered like pearls across the turquoise Andaman Sea, the Andaman Islands rank high among Asia’s most irresistible beach destinations for divers, snorkellers, bird watchers and all-round adventurers. If you’re an experienced SCUBA diver, the coral reefs beckon with turtles, barracuda and shoals of brightly coloured fish. If you’ve never tried diving, this is the perfect place to introduce yourself to the incredible world that waits beneath the oceans.
Above the surface, you can sail to fairytale desert islands, explore dense tropical rainforest, and meet Rajan, the former logging elephant who’s living out a happy retirement on beautiful Havelock Island. Our base in the Andamans is Barefoot on Havelock, a rustic-chic eco-sensitive property on the jungle-fringed Beach No. 7 – declared Asia’s Best Beach by Time magazine.
