With breathtakingly beautiful coastline, lush forested interior, fantastic diving possibilities and a far-flung location, the Andaman Islands are a perfect place to ramble around or simply chill out on sun-toasted beaches. The name Andaman is presumed to be derived from Hanuman, who was known to the Malays as Handuman. Long fabled among travellers for its gorgeous beaches, underwater wonders and primeval location in the middle of nowhere, the Andaman Islands is still the ideal place to get away from it all. The archipelago has around 572 islands of which only 36 are inhabited (open to tourists).
