Baratang Island - North And Middle Andaman

Perched between the Middle and South Andaman Islands, Baratang Island has made a name for itself for the number of mud volcanoes that are found here. These volcanoes spit out gasses and mud. Apart from these volcanoes, Baratang also has a number of beaches and limestone caves and makes for a great tourist spot. The most famous beach of this island is Baludera Beach. One will also find the Tota Tekri located here and being surrounded by thick mangroves, it hosts a number of parrots during sunset. Baratang Island is about 110 kilometers away from Port Blair and can be reached by a Government run bus. Before reaching one must pass through the habitat of the Jarawas, an indigenous tribe. Bird watching, dongi rides, and cave walks are some of the activities that one can enjoy at Baratang.
MARITIME ADVENTURE Sunbathe on pristine-white sand beaches, hunt for seashells and swim in the warm sea. Aquatic enthusiasts could take a dip and get 'up close and personal' with some of the world's rarest underwater marine life, including schools of dolphins, sharks and manta rays in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. For an out-of-the-ordinary experience, one could head to either Little Andaman Island in a helicopter, hike through tropical wilderness to cool waterfalls or visit the very remote Long Island, a tiny speck in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago, about a 1,000 km off the Indian coast in the Bay of Bengal. It is a six-hour boat ride from the capital, Port Blair. The jetty ride to the island offers a view of thick groves of mangroves. Another place called Baratang Island, located 100 km away from Port Blair, also offers a boat safari through a tunnel of mesmerizing mangroves.

Baratang Island is situated between Middle and South Andamans. The road to Baratang from Port Blair passes through the Jarawa Tribe Reserve also known as Andaman Trunk Road. One has to drive through the Jarawa Reserve area (Jarawa: a tribal of Andamans) on convoy to get toBaratang.If your lucky you might chance on a spotting of this aboriginal tribe.Baratang is famous for its Mangrove Forests and Lime Stone caves. Located 50 minutes away by sea from the Baratang Jetty. The journey to the caves excites everyone as it takes you between the dense forest of mangrove plantations and crocodile infested waters. For some it’s an adventure and experience of a lifetime. Baratang is one of the few select places on the earth where limestone caves can be found.

2 secluded islands far away from the hustle bustle of the city are connected to each other by a thin bar of sand. The island pair stands as a silent reminder of ‘Beauty lies in Connecting’. Furthermore, Ross & Smith islands are home to the Olive Ridley turtles, be there in the right place and at the right time and you may just spot a turtle nesting! The twin islands can be reached from Diglipur with prior permission from the Forest Office located there. This island should not be missed while travelling here.

Mud Volcano - North And Middle Andaman

Probably the only active mud volcano in the whole of Asia, this will be one of the best part of your trip. A mud volcano is something which occurs due to decaying organic substances underground. The mud comes out and broadens and forms something which looks like a volcano. The place is a few kilometers away from the jetty and a lovely location to explore.
On the second day on Baratang Island, visit Mud Volcano which is quite famous among the tourist. Mud Volcano erupts mud, rocks and gas and the outflow is not called lava but mud flow.

Long Island - North And Middle Andaman

There are no rickshaws on Long Island as one would expect after having visited the other Islands in Andaman and Nicobar. There is no traffic noise as there are only 2000 people who live here and they prefer to walk. You can bet that this is the cleanest of all places here. The locals here are extremely welcoming and friendly and greet tourists with a smile and ‘namaste.’ The children might ask you to take their photo, but nobody will try and sell anything to you. The place is a tranquil heaven, unlike the other beaches and islands that are crowded with tourists. One can engage in snorkeling, diving and as well as explore the forests and neighboring islands.
We arrived at Long Island to be greeted by a signboard which warned us of crocodiles in the water. Wow. Talk about a cheerful welcome! This island looked very pristine and unexplored. As we walked to our hotel – the Blue Planet, we passed by many old abandoned houses. The houses looked eerie – all wooden with broken windows, covered in dust and dry leaves, half-hidden in the shadows of the tall trees.
