The government of India has identified six islands in the Andaman and Nicobar group located in the Indian Ocean, where eco-tourism activities will be promoted in order to boost economic growth.
The Honorable Prime Minister of India has declared intentions to develop 1000 new destinations in the country for both for domestic and foreign tourists.
This month, the department of Environment & Forests identified six islands - Inglis Island, Sir Hugh Rose, North Button Island, Middle Button Island, Tarmugli Island and Aves Island - to be focused upon in the development of eco-tourism. The islands form part of a group of 572 Islands, islets and rocks located in the Bay of Bengal.
The Andaman and Nicobar islands are isolated, have breathtaking scenery and as a result, are swiftly becoming a highly sought after tourist destination. The islands have long been a favourite among superyacht travellers since the distance from Phuket in Thailand is relatively short.
A host of adventure tourism activities include trekking, game fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving, skiing and windsurfing.
