South Cinque Island, Andaman Islands
South Cinque is home to some of the most spectacular beaches in the Andaman Islands. A 1 km (0.6 mile) wide sand bar connects South Cinque to North Cinque Island and the two islands are sometimes referred to as being a single Cinque Island. The Cinque Island Wildlife Sanctuary is a specially designated National Park Area with many coral bommies fringing the island. South Cinque Island also belongs to the Mahatma Gandhi Marine Park where more than forty coral species have been recorded in an impressive example of the biodiversity of this region.
