Marine Nation Park

There are 2 major island groups in the park: the Labyrinth Islands and the  Twin Islands  The islands are situated 16 km (10 mi) south from  Port Blair . The marine park covers 281.5 km² made up of 17 islands and the open sea creeks running through the area. There is a chance for  ecotourism on the islands Jolly Buoy and Red Skin which are open during some seasons offering  glass bottom boats ,  scuba diving  and  snorkeling  as a way to see the park's  coral reefs  and marine life.  The islands belongs to the  Rutland Archipelago  and are located between  Rutland Island and  South Andaman Island .

Ecosystems

Most of the coral reefs in the park are  fringing reefs . The type and composition of vegetation varies from island to island. Most notably there you can see a difference between the tourist islands which suffer more anthropocentric change and others which do not. There are also some islands more isolated or protected from the effects of weather in the  Bay of Bengal . Tarmugli, the largest island, is covered with thick  mangrove  vegetation, sand covered beaches, uprooted trees and sheet rocks .   Twin Islands  are an important breeding ground for turtles within the park.
