THE ISLAND

We will release the name of the island to ticket holders only. The island has a population of less than 5000 people and is only 15sqkm in area, with a fragile ecosystem that balances tourism and resources. Some would argue that this balance has already been lost and that the island's natural state is threatened to a point that continued inhabitation may be impossible. Keeping the island's identity a secret accept to ticket holders is important to protect this ecosystem as has been advised by locally based NGO representatives.


ACTIVITIES ON THE ISLAND

The island’s natural beauty offers:-

White sand, kilometre long beaches untouched by human development

Excellent snorkelling, diving and shore/sea fishing possible throughout the day

Jungle walks, secret beach hikes and many places to explore

Restaurants offering locally grown/caught ingredients and prepared fresh.


FACTS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING

° A visa is required by most foreign nationals visiting India

° There are mosquitos on the island so please bring protection. Nets are available at all accommodations

° There is no / very little internet access on the Andaman Islands.

° We recommend pre-ordering Wifi time and alcohol to make sure you have what you need.
