 Cinque Islands 

The Cinque Islands are a pair of islands in the Andaman Archipelago, on the north side of Duncan Passage, between Rutland Island and  Passage Island.

  • North Cinque Island
  •  South Cinque Island

The two islands are connected by a sand bar and therefore are often considered a single Cinque Island.
The Cinque Islands are a famous underwater spot. The branch of Duncan Passage between North Cinque and Rutland is called Manners Strait.
