Long fabled among travellers for its legendary beaches, world-class diving and far-flung location in the middle of nowhere, the Andaman Islands are still the ideal place to get away from it all. It's lovely opaque emerald waters are surrounded by primeval jungle and mangrove forest, and snow-white beaches that melt under flame-and-purple sunsets.Located in the Bay of Bengal, the Andamans are a spectacular group of islands encompassed within the Indo-Burma global biodiversity hotspot. With diverse coral reef and rainforest ecosystems occurring in close proximity to each other, the islands offer excellent field opportunities for both terrestrial and marine work. The Andamans also have an interesting socio-political history of assimilation as well as resistance between ancient cultures and outside influences and people. Beginning with a history of violent indigenous resistance to trade and colonisation to present day tussles over land, sea and resources, these islands offer a wide spectrum of developmental and cultural experiences for the interested student.
