All of the Andaman and Nicobar attractions are places that are worth a visit, so make sure to buy a package that lets you explore completely.

Notoriously known as the Kala Pani, this colonial prison in Port Blair imprisoned a vast number of freedom fighters in the British Era.

Today it has been turned into a national memorial and tourists can attend illuminating light and sound show at Cellular Jail.
Covered by palm and coconut trees, this island is located about 3 km from Port Blair. Tourists can experience its laid-back vibes, explore historical ruins, and spot a variety of animals. It is named after a British Caption who first explored the region.
Aside from the main city of Port Blair, travellers should board a ferry to Havelock Island and Neil Island. Both are known for some of the best beaches and water sports in Andaman. Radhanagar Beach, Havelock Island, North Bay Beach, and Chidiya Tapu are some of the notable attractions in Andaman.
Sea Walk in Andaman

Even non-swimmers can enjoy this experience by simply putting on a helmet to explore underwater world. People can spot colourful coral reefs and feed small fish on a sea walk.
While North Bay Island and Nemo Reef are popular for shore diving in Andaman, Corbyn’s Cove Beach and Neil Island are known for boat diving. Cost for scuba diving in Andaman begins from INR 3500 per session. From snorkeling at Elephant Beach and North Bay Beach to witnessing bioluminescence at Havelock Island, partaking in scuba diving, riding a banana boat at Port Blair, trying the glass bottom boat ride, parasailing at Havelock Island, traveling in a seaplane, swimming with elephants at Havelock Island, attending the Light & Sound Show at Cellular Jail, going on nature walks, trekking from Mount Harriet to Madhuban and island hopping, there are plenty of things to do in Andaman.
Opt for a tour with your beloved to this archipelago of stunning islands, and enjoy a honeymoon in Andaman and Nicobar islands. Make sure to explore nearby islands from Port Blair, and enjoy spa sessions. Choose to stroll through enticing beaches after sunbathing, indulge in thrilling watersports, and shop for souvenirs in the local markets.
Besides lazing on sun-drenched beaches, a tour to Andaman and Nicobar islands also helps to indulge the shopaholic in you. Visit MG Road in Port Blair, for it is the best spot for value-for-money shopping in Andaman.

Travellers can also learn about craft and culture of native tribes. Most of the areas in the Nicobar Islands are off-limits to foreigners as the isles are ecologically fragile.

Ankit's 3 days trip to AndamanFirst of all , the date which we wanted to book, they booked the date 1 day later and because of this date issue we had to pay Rs.1000/- extra and after paying the amount the date was adjusted. This whole thing was told to us 3 days before our travel. Secondly, the hotel that was confirmed for the Havelock , they changed it without any intimation and also it was communicated to us when we reached the venue that was pathetic. The hotel provided in Havelock was also below grade in comparison to which was booked earlier and communicated in itinerary and there was differences in hotel amount also. Above all this issues we had some good experience also that is the communication between we and the travel agency people were good. They took it responsibly and finally we enjoyed our trip and made it memorable.

Good time to visit Andaman is between October and May which constitutes summer and winter season in Andaman which is ideal for sightseeing and water sports activities.
