India has two groups of islands. The Lakshadweep islands are located in the Arabian Sea close to the Malabar Coast of Kerala. These are the small group of the coral islands. Kavaratti Island is the administrative capital of the Lakshadweep. The Pitt Island is uninhabited and has a bird sanctuary. The Andaman and Nicobar islands are located in the Bay of Bengal and are an elevated portion of the submarine mountains. Since these islands lie close to the Equator, the climate remains hot and wet throughout the year and has dense forests.
