The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are not only renowned for picturesque beauty, pristine beaches and tranquil ambience, but also for some of the most breathtaking sunsets on the planet. As the sun descends into the horizon, a canvas of colours, ranging from shades of orange and pink to deep hues of purple and blue infuse in sky. With every passing moment, the foamy waves of the sea turn into liquid gold, reflecting the radiant beauty of the setting sun. And as the waves crash against the shore and mingle with the chirping of the birds, a sweet mellifluous sound fills the surrounding. If you want to witness this, we have a list of the 4 best places in Andaman to watch sunset.
