12_Nicobar Island India.jpg
Coming from Phuket in Thailand, heading to Sri Lanka, we stopped for one night in the 16sqm small and uninhabited island of Tillanchong. This island belongs to the Nicobar Archipel, which separate the Andaman Sea to the Gulf of Bengal in the Indian Ocean. It’s part of India and nobody is allowed to visit the area normally. We stopped there for few hours anyway, as we are definitely curious explorers. The coral reef around the island was totally destroyed by the Tsunami in December 2004 with reported waves of 10m to 15m in height. Left behind is still a wonderful beach with coconut trees and in the background is the rainforest covering the island completely. We felt so comfortable that we finally spent the night.
