Touring Islands and Beaches of India

When one thinks of oceans and coasts, Goa is a destination that often comes to mind. However, few international tourists know that just a 2 hour flight from the east of Chennai sits an archipelago of exquisite islands known as the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Rather insulated from the rest of the world, this region is home to some of the world’s best diving spots. On the opposite coast, about an hour from Cochin by air sit the Lakshadweep Islands that are known for its magnificent and diverse marine life. Both these islands make for ideal destinations for beach vacationers looking for untouched beauty to explore.
