The Little Andaman Island is one of the largest islands in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands that are open to the public. Being a bit distant from Port Blair, they are not frequently visited, but the pristine beaches, palm trees, waterfalls and the surf draw a number of tourists. HolidayIQ traveller Sushma says, "Little Andaman, does sound little but it holds a bag full of adventure in it. With the numerous jaw-dropping waterfalls, white sandy beaches with crystal clear water, coral reefs, a variety of rare turtle species, it looks like a humongous aquarium. As a value addition, one can taste adventure in activities like surfing, boating through dense mangrove forests, elephant safari and you can even train an elephant calf! Reaching this place takes just a trip on an inter-island boat and voila, you've done it!"

It is believed that the island was discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1498, who named it as El Padron de Santa Maria. The island has vertical volcanic rock formations of different sizes. Ferries are available from the port of Malpe to reach St. Mary's Island. HoliayIQ traveller Sreejesh says, "This island is few kilometers away from Malpe beach in Udupi, Karnataka. There is a boat service which costs Rs. 200 to get there and return on the same boat with a one hour halt. The place has great view of the Arabian Sea. The west side of the beach is filled with sea shells instead of sand, so the water is crystal clear. East side is more deep and has black pebble stones and sand."

8. Ross Island
