1.The islands of the Bay of Bengal

Among the islands located in the Bay of Bengal the most important group is the Andaman and Nicobar group of islands. These islands are mainly the upper parts of mountains rising from the floor of the Bay. This is the reason why at different parts of the islands small hills can be seen distributed irregularly. They range in height between 400 to 500 meters e.g. Mount Harriet in the South Andamans. The barren and Narcondam islands have volcanoes. 

Islands of the Arabian Sea

Off the Malabar coast of Kerala lay the islands of Amindivi, Lakshadweep and Minicoy. They lie in the Arabian Sea. These islands have been formed by deposits of millions of corals and so form coral islands. Thus the soil of these islands is also very fertile.
