Parrot Island, a peculiar sort of home to thousands of fluttering parrots, looks like a whole new empire of wilderness born out of the salty waters of the Indian Ocean. Every day, hosts of green parrots arrive at the island as a part of their daily ritual, which is a spectacle to behold. Once in a while, we come across something so beautiful yet bizarre, exquisite yet inexplicable, that we find no words to quite describe it. Parrot Island is one such unparalleled destination, nestled quietly amidst the group of Baratang Islands of Andaman and Nicobar. This small island is part of a larger archipelago, all of which are laced with dense tropical forests and mangrove vegetation.
Most of the islands in Baratang are restricted to the public without prior permission and only to be visited escorted by a convoy of forest rangers and officials. Many of them are inhabited by Jarawas, which means there are even stricter rules about public admission. However, Parrot Island is one that is completely uninhabited and thus only to be enjoyed from your ride. From the Baratang jetty, there are small boats, locally called Dunghi, to take you to the shores of the beautiful, lush green Parrot Island some 30 minutes away to enjoy the homecoming of the parrots.
