Blessed white-sugar beaches, turquoise waters, sylvan haven and unparalleled tranquility, Andaman & Nicobar Islands is a perfect holiday destination in India. Though considerably detached from the main Indian Peninsula, the Islands are so well intact with the history of the country that try as you may, you cannot forget that this international-looking destination is not a part of India. The landmark of the Islands is of course its scenic beaches that are flanked by palm trees, however, Andaman & Nicobar are much more than just a beach getaway. The Islands apparently gleam with rich marine life of which coral reef is of prime importance.
The main city of Port Blair itself has a number of tourist attractions which are definitely a must see. The city houses the historical Cellular Jail that once has India’s leaders of freedom struggle. A part of the jail has been converted into a museum and it remains one of the major tourism attractions in Andaman. The nearby Ross Island also has plenty to offer to the visitors interested in history. Port Blair is also known for offering watersports opportunities like snorkeling, scuba diving, sea-cruises along with glimpses of the history and culture of the region. The Aberdeen Bazaar, which forms the centre of the town also has a lot to offer to shopaholics and the history buffs.
