A tropical paradise & a little slice of heaven

This remote archipelago in the Indian Ocean is a territory of India, where in the late 18th century the British Raj established a naval base and penal colony. The islands are bright with brilliant tropical flora and deep green rainforests; white sand, palm-fringed beaches; and the pristine reefs that are the hallmarks of a tropical paradise.

Crystal clear waters house some of the world’s least spoiled marine reserves, filled with fish in flashy outfits and a rainbow of corals. Those brilliant flashes in the sky are not a reflection—these isles are also a little slice of heaven for birdwatchers.
