    Probably the most beautiful islands on earth that were once the least talked of. Andaman and Nicobar Islands are undoubtedly one of the most blessed lands on the face of the earth but unfortunately have been the under obscurity until recently. It is ironical to note that despite the heavenly beauty they possess they were infamously known as Kalapani or the Black Waters and were highly feared. The islands were used by the British to imprison hard core criminals. With an end to the woes, the islands are now gaining their much deserved glory as one of the most sought after tourist destinations in this part of the world.

    Shining emeralds in the Bay of Bengal, Andaman and Nicobar Islands are simply a treat to the eye. Around six hundred in numbers, these tiny islands are a world of charm to any visitor. Blessed by nature, the islands possess immense beauty to keep any beholder enchanted. Though tiny in size all these islands are pretty much covered by almost impenetrable dense tropical forests. In turn, these forests afford a rich floral and faunal wealth.

    One of the most exotic beach destinations in the country, Andaman and Nicobar Islands offer a truly tranquil and out-of-the-world beach experience. The white virgin beaches are simply a paradise for any beach lover, sun-bather or aqua-diver. The numerous small islands with endless stretches of countless beaches are more than just a dream for any holidayer. For a perfect beach experience spend some time at Corbyns Cove. The Radhanagar Beach is the place for any solitude seeker. The islands are particularly noted for their turtle nests. A good place to take a look at the same is the Karmatang Beach. A huge turtle nesting ground is being developed here.

    The most frequented island in the group is probably the Havelock Island, known for it lovely beaches and great water-sports activities. For those who wish to experience the real jungle experience, Rutland Island is a place not to be missed. Its beautiful mangrove forests and coral reefs are a paradise to all eco-tourists.

    Recently, Andaman and Nicobar Islands have earned much fame for being the most happening aquatic sports destination. Having exciting scuba-diving, snorkeling, diving and surfing opportunities, the islands have loads for fun-lovers. Havelock Island and South Cinque Island have the best scuba diving spots in the area. Snorkeling too is great fun around these places. One can actually find many guides and equipment renting places here.

    The dazzling under water life that the region affords is another marvel. It is almost sinful to leave the place without having a look at the same. Scuba diving here allows you to closely follow marine life. If swimming is not something that excites you too much, there are glass bottom boats that allow you to see the rich marine life that thrives underneath.

    The next time you plan a tropical holiday plan, make sure it is Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

    The first inhabitants of Galapagos Islands, were between two and three hundred in number; they are nearly all people of colour, who have been banished for political crimes from the Republic of the Equator, of which Quito is the capital. The settlement is placed about four and a half miles inland, and at a height probably of a thousand feet. In the first part of the road we passed through leafless thickets, as in Chatham Islands at Galapagos Islands.
    Higher up, the woods gradually became greener; and as soon as we crossed the ridge of the Galapagos islands, we were cooled by a fine southerly breeze, and our sight refreshed by a green and thriving vegetation. In this upper region coarse grasses and ferns abound; but there are no tree-ferns: I saw nowhere any member of the palm family, which is the more singular, as 360 miles northward, Cocos Island takes its name from the number of cocoa-nuts. The houses are irregularly scattered over a flat space of ground, which is cultivated with sweet potatoes and bananas. It will not easily be imagined how pleasant the sight of black mud was to us, after having been so long, accustomed to the parched soil of Peru and northern Chile.

    The inhabitants, although complaining of poverty, obtained, without much trouble, the means of subsistence. In the woods there are many wild pigs and goats; but the staple article of animal food is supplied by the tortoises. Their numbers have of course been greatly reduced in this Galapagos islands, but the people yet count on two days’ hunting giving them food for the rest of the week. It is said that formerly single vessels have taken away as many as seven hundred, and that the ship’s company of a frigate some years since brought down in one day two hundred tortoises to the beach.

    Paraty is in one of the most beautiful areas of Brazil and famed for its lovely coastline dotted with sixty-five islands. There are over 300 beaches accessible by boat from Paraty and boat tours directed by locals can take you to the best ones for your purposes. Whether you want calm water for swimming, a variety of sea life for snorkeling, or the finest sand for sunbathing, the islands can deliver. There are also special areas for scuba divers who want to explore Paratys islands from a different depth.

    The closest, and therefore most visited, islands are close to Paratys shores and located in the bay. These are some of the most beautiful islands with fine white-sand beaches situated close to reefs for viewing a variety of sea life during snorkeling, but you will usually have to share the views with quite a few other people. For those seeking a more solitary excursion, there are also tours to some of the farther islands that are perfect for a romantic day with a loved one or a secluded family picnic.

    There are a few different ways to get to these beautiful islands, but by far the nicest way is by sail boat. Chartering a sail boat is more expensive than some of the other tour options, but the peace and tranquility you experience while sunning on your deck as you slice through calm turquoise water to pristine islands is unparalleled. If chartering a private sail boat is out of your budget, there are larger boats that take many travelers at once to some of the islands and are very inexpensive. Or, travelers can rent a private boat with an outboard motor for a more intimate experience. These little fishing boats are usually operated by locals who can whisk you to many of the more secluded beaches. Fishing boats are the best option for small groups wanting to see many of the islands as they are faster than the other boats which means more time for snorkeling and sunning.
