The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal. Of the 572 islands, only 36 are inhabited. Once a British colony, Andaman/Nicobar became an Indian Union Territory in 1950, with direct rule of its 370,000 residents from Delhi. The main island is divided into three areas: North Andaman, Middle Andaman, and South Andaman. Port Blair, the capital, is located in South Andaman and foreigners are required to have a permit to visit the islands. Visitors enjoy the serenity, pristine beaches, thermal mud pools, tropical forests, and mangroves, as well as excellent scuba diving in the coral reefs. Commercial fishing has been banned for over sixty years, resulting in an oasis of marine life. There is also an added attraction: The ocean swimming elephants!
