The Lure of the Andamans
Nearer to southern Thailand than India, the Andaman and neighbouring Nicobar Islands are Superyacht Cruising Gold.
THOSE WHO VENTURE TO CRUISE the clear waters of the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal that straddle either side of the Andaman Islands will find an enchanting archipelago that is home to striking great expanses of seclusion. The islands and waters around them offer drift diving over bright coral gardens, and soft-sand beaches fringed with pure blue waters with an offshore temperature averaging 28 degrees Celcius, good sailing winds and cool nights.
A plethora of anchorage options await for spectacular cruising – and a fairly adventurous journey that taps into an almost secret world of lesser-visited tropical jungles, lush and unique rainforests and serene, scattered pristine coastlines.
