It comprises two island groups, the Andaman Islands and the Nicobar Islands, separated by the 10°N parallel, with the Andamans to the north of this latitude, and the Nicobars to the south. The Andaman Sea lies to the east and the Bay of Bengal to the west.

The islands host the Andaman and Nicobar Command, the only tri-service geographical command of the Indian Armed Forces.
