The Andaman Islands forms an archipelago of 325 islands in the Bay of Bengal between India to the west, and Myanmar to the north and east, and is a sovereign territory of India. The islands form a land mass of 6,400 square kilometers, with the Andaman Sea to the east and the Bay of Bengal to the west. The natural vegetation of the Andamans is tropical forest with mangroves along its coastlines. The Andaman rainforests are similar in composition to those of the west coast of Myanmar and thousands of years ago the present-day Andaman Islands were thought to be attached to mainland western Myanmar. The Andaman climate is typical of tropical islands of a similar latitude, namely warm, humid but with sea-breezes. Rainfall is irregular except during the monsoons of July to September. The Andaman coastlines are outstandingly beautiful as well as relatively undisturbed, and coupled with the fact that its avifauna is extremely rich with a particularly high degree of endemism, 22 species in total, these islands have become an especially attractive destination to the birdwatcher.

安达曼岛是一个由325个岛屿组成的群岛,位于孟加拉湾,西至印度,东北至缅甸,领土主权属于印度。群岛面积6,400平方千米,东起安达曼海,西至孟加拉湾。安达曼岛上的自然植被为热带雨林,沿着海岸线有着片片红树林。安达曼的雨林在组成上与缅甸西海岸的雨林类似。人们普遍认为几千年前安达曼岛与缅甸西部大陆相连。安达曼岛的气候是典型的热带气候,与同纬度地区相同——那是一种温暖的,潮湿的天气拂过阵阵海风。降雨很没有规律,每年的7月到9月是台风季。安达曼岛有着非常迷人的海岸线,某种程度上说未经开发。除此之外,这里有着非常丰富的鸟类资源,岛上特有的鸟类品种达22种之多,因此这里成为了观鸟者的“天堂”。
