This is exactly how glorious the sunsets at Neil island were! We spent every evening at the sunset Beach (laxmanpur Beach) and witnessed beautiful sights each evening.

Finally saw the famed Volcano of the Barren Island. The power of Nature to construct and destruct is truly spectacular.

Just an update from the fourth day after trek. We were going to Northbay as decided for the scuba try dive. So we holded in Ross Island for sometime with the hope that it won't rain cause if it would have, the whole day was to go a waste and no diving but it just wrapped up great. Bad weather it was but hopefully it didn't rain ! 🌴 #andamans #andamantourism #travellingandamams #clouds #sky #sea #nature #rain #beach #amazing #moment #relaxing #vacation #travelgram #trip #travelblogger #incredibleindia #travelphotography #photoambassador #iamtb #frameit #funjetters #worldnomads #wanderon #travelrealindia #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia

The only black sand beach in Andaman and we were fortunate enough to experience a beautiful end of the day at a beach like this.Coming down from Saddle peak we decided to take the beach to check post instead of takinh the forest way as it was gradually getting dark.That walk will always be remembered by me.One of the beautiful as well as insane walk of my life. #tropical #travellingandamams #travelrealIndia #travelandaman #andamans #andamantourism #incredibleindia #picoftheday Frame it 👇👆 #travelblogger #travelwriter #travelindia #incredibleindia #amerfort #travelphotography #photoambassador #iamtb #frameit #funjetters #worldnomads #wanderon #travelrealindia #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia

________, also known as the sea cow, is the State Animal of Andaman. . a) Hermit crab b) Dugong c) Dolphin . 30% of the participants of the quiz got it right! Link in the bio. . . . . . . Answer: Dugong . The Dugong, also known as the sea cow, is the state animal of Andaman. This sea mammal is endemic to the Indo-Pacific seacoast areas, especially the Andaman Islands. This herbivorous marine mammal is an endangered species and is one of the four living species of the order Sirenia. It is the only living representative of Steller’s sea cow. . The Dugong depends largely on seagrass. They weigh about 400 kg and grow up to 3 meters in length. The areas of Gulf of Mannar, Gulf of Kutch and Palk Bay are where the Dugong population can be found. They can also be spotted in shallow waters in and around Little Andaman, North Reef, Parts of the Nicobar Islands and Ritchie’s Archipelago. . For thousands of years, the Dugong has been hunted for its meat and oil. The IUCN lists the dugong as a species vulnerable to extinction, while the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species limits or bans the trade of derived products. Even though being legally protected in many countries, the population of these species is drastically decreasing due to fishing-related fatalities, habitat degradation and hunting. .

Witnessing the continually changing weather, including the receding and advancing sea water, while resting on those beach benches at the Cross Bill Beach Resort in Havelock is something I've been craving all of a sudden.

"...the sea changes color, but the sea does not change." Spending a week in Andamans made us appreciate the islanders and the island way of life. The sea plays such a crucial role in their life, from providing sustenance to the flourishing tourism industry. The sea is an integral part of their life... something to be cherished and preserved.

On my way from Port Blair to Havelock. This was one of rainiest mornings, and a very turbulent sailing. The sky doesn't look cloudy here, but somehow it rained all through and the sea was fairly choppy. I slept through the entire journey, while most of the other passengers went to the upper deck to enjoy the rain. Even while sleeping, I could hear the captain announce several times for people to calm the fu*k down and take their respective seats. And people losing shit every time the ship swayed wee bit more than the normal. #andamanislands #andaman #andamans #andamandiaries #andamannicobar #isle #island #islandlife #islandlife 🌴 #islander #shipjourney #ferry #incredibleindiaofficial #incredibleindia #incredibleindia 🇮🇳 #andamantourism #morning #sea #ocean #havelock #havelockisland #havelockislands #portblair #portblairdiaries #havelockdiaries #aborrowedbackpack #remotexpeditions #passportready #girlswhotravel #phoneclick

The 20 Rupee beach 😛 #Northbay #Andamans #October2018
For this installation of #wednesdaywonders we bring you our local varinid - the monitor lizard. These creatures are found all the way from Africa to the South China Sea. The most famous species, of course, is the Komodo dragon. Typically carnivorous, they can adapt to an omnivorous or vegetarian diet if circumstances necessitate it. Typically shy, you may see them lurking on the roadside in #chidiyatapu before disappearing into the bushes! // photography by @shauryatarni . . #reptile #lizard #monitorlizard #islands #andamans #wildplaces #islandlife #earthcapture #natgeoyourshot #wildlife #incredibleindia #bbc #bbcearth #wildlifephotography
Mingle in the tropical forest, our new destination in 2019 will take you to this Unesco World Heritage Site. Can you name the island?
And coming back to Port Blair from Diglipur after the Saddle Peak trek being the highest in Andaman, on the fourth day we decided to go for scuba diving to North bay. So on our way this is the Ross Island where the Japanese took over and had bunkers during #worldwar2 and now its a beautiful island where you can just have a great time with the deers, rabbits and many other which are inhabited there. Good one ! #andamans #andamantourism #travellingandamams #clouds #sky #sea #nature #rain #beach #amazing #moment #relaxing #vacation #travelgram #trip #travelblogger #incredibleindia #travelphotography #photoambassador #iamtb #frameit #funjetters #worldnomads #wanderon #travelrealindia #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia

______ islands are connected to each other by a thin, fifty-meter long sandbar. . a) Andaman and Nicobar b) Havelock and Neil c) Ross and Smith . 85% of the participants of the quiz got it right! Link in the bio. . . . . . . Answer: Ross and Smith . The twin islands of Ross and Smith are connected to each other by a thin and silky fifty-meter long sandbar. This silky white sandbar goes underwater during high tides and surfaces again during low tides. . The most unique feature of the bar is its ability to divide the water into a shallow swimming area on one side and some amazing snorkelling on the other. The warm, turquoise blue waters are crystal clear, whilst the untamed virgin beaches are the most picture perfect ones you will see on the islands. . The beach is seldom crowded and you can feel a sense of tranquillity and peace here. A hiking trail through the dense tropical forests is a must for nature lovers all alike. Even though Smith Island has limited facilities, it still feels like paradise. An assortment of spacious bamboo huts with plenty of shade, changing rooms and toilets are some of the basic amenities offered here. . The water surrounding the island changes colour under the influence of the dancing rays of the sun. Hues of blue and green are revealed by these sunkissed waters. .
