Mangrove Swamps of Baratang Island

From the outside, Baratang Island looks massive and green, but as one enters one of the many creeks of this island, the charm is totally different.

Only small speedboats can enter such creeks coz at some places the canopy is really low and might not be more than four feet from the water level.

These small creeks are completely inundated with mangrove forests and the play of tide makes this area very swampy and thus the name ‘mangrove swamps’.

If one is visiting Baratang Island in the Andamans, then a visit to these exotic mangrove swamps is a must for your travel agenda.
