    I learned about Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Sea at school, but I don’t recall why. I had no idea the island has this incredibly beautiful white sandy beaches though. The underwater world is also amazing. I wonder if the elephants are native in the island or they brought them there to make the attraction is more exciting.

    I’ve always wanted to see the Maldives but the Andaman Islands also look to be an amazing paradise. I plan to visit India in about a year so I will have to see if I can also go to the Andaman Islands for a few days. Radhanagar Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. Your photos are incredible! I’d also love to see Elephant Beach. How cute!!
