The Andaman Islands offer unique and authentic yachting experiences for superyachts to enjoy the pure essence of sailing.
These picturesque and remote islands provide the perfect basis for luxury adventures, where you will uncover glistening turquoise waters, bone-white sands and a lush green interior. The remoteness of these exotic islands provides the perfect environment to enjoy isolated cruising, where you can reel in the luxury of your superyacht and spend quality time with friends and family. As a territory of India that is more closely located to Myanmar and Thailand, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands display cultural influences of all three countries. With fascinating history and culture to immerse yourself in, and pristine natural beauty, the Andaman Islands are a thrilling charter experience.
Of the 572 islands that form this group in the Bay of Bengal, only a handful are inhabited. The Andamans are untouched and undisturbed by foreign influences, with large expanses of tropical rainforest being home to incredible wildlife. Above you, the parakeets and emerald doves add colour and song as you wander through a mesmerising tropical environment.
With huge areas of scintillating cruising grounds and a seemingly endless stream of remote islands, the Andaman Islands are perfect for exploration by superyacht. Many of the islands are only accessible by boat, so you will embrace the exclusivity of a charter and feel like a pioneer discovering a new world. Your island-hopping itinerary will include everything from indulgent massages and sunset drinks to adrenaline-pumping diving and treks.
Your superyacht charter journey through the Andaman Islands is not complete without experiencing the elephant safari on Little Andaman.
