In 1983, the national marine park of Mahatma Gandhi was established in Bandura to protect tropical ecosystems in 15 deserted Andaman Islands. Its territory is more than 280 km ². Many bays, coral reefs, lagoons, mangroves and tropical forests abound in all sorts of animals. The ferries heading from the village of Bandur, bypass these lagoons with a beautiful seabed, where you can often see flocks of playful dolphins. Most of these islands are in the protection zone and therefore inaccessible.
You can visit only two islands - Jolly Boy, ideal for swimming with a mask and snorkel, and Redskin with a well-designed route. Unfortunately, the strongest tsunami in December 2004 significantly destroyed Jolly-Boy.
