Andaman Islands Tourism

Replete with scenic beaches and lagoons of crystal clear water, Andaman tourism offers serenity and adventure at the same time. Shining like a gem in the Bay of Bengal, this archipelago is situated more than 1,200 kilometres off the east coast of India. From the capital city of Port Blair to stunning beaches on Havelock Island, tourism in Andaman allows a diverse range of activities.

Shimmering blue waters, bright-coloured coral formations, desolate yet gorgeous islands, and pearly white beaches make Andaman and Nicobar islands a truly tropical holiday destination. 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. From once detaining political prisoners exiled from the mainland of India to now hosting visitors purposely seeking joyful isolation, the islands of Andaman and Nicobar have transformed their identity on the tourist circuit. This tropical destination delivers what it promises to newlyweds and families looking for a memorable holiday.

Port Blair in Andaman

The capital city of Port Blair is the main point of entry, for both flights and ships, to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. There are several places to see in Port Blair including: Cellular Jail National Memorial, Ross Island, Rajiv Gandhi Water Sports Complex, and Viper Island. Direct flights to Port Blair are available from major Indian cities such as Kolkata and Chennai.

Cellular Jail

Notoriously known as the Kala Pani, this colonial prison in Port Blair imprisoned a vast number of freedom fighters in the British Era. A total of seven wings, each having 3 stories, made up the entire complex. Today it has been turned into a national memorial and tourists can attend illuminating light and sound show at Cellular Jail.

Ross Island in Andaman

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

North Bay Island and Elephant Beach are top places to enjoy this unique activity. Tourists can step on the ocean floor to explore the rich marine life of the Andaman Sea. 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.

Scuba Diving in Andaman

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.

Honeymoon 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.

Shopping in Andaman

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. Aberdeen Bazaar, Government Emporium, Sagarika Emporium, and Queen Sea Shell Craft are some of other popular places to pick up souvenirs, handicrafts, beachwear, hats, jewelry, and paper mache products. So, when you hop on an excursion to this amazing destination, then take delight to shop from a range of exquisite products and splurge extravagantly to take back home some memories along.

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. Besides this, there are also several activities you can indulge in on your own or with your family and friends. The best way to get around the islands is via taking a ferry ride to explore the hidden beauty of the Andamans.

    • Trip to Andaman

      I would recommend everyone Travel triangle , but Happy Holidays A Unit Of Felix Feria Agent ( Sapna Agarwal) is very rude when interacting with you. Only till you pay your first installment she would be good but later she will not respond and she will not be polite as well. I had one issue with the one of the accommodation. In the voucher they gave me "Tamarind Resort" , so when i checked Tamarind resort in google images i get nice resort with swimming pool etc which was actually some other Resort which starts with The Tamarind Resort . I had two days booking there one on day one and one on the last day in my 6D 5N trip. So when I visited first day it was not resort but just a hotel with currently only 4 rooms in running and a BAR in the ground floor.I just requested the agent to change by booking to another hotel for the last day. But she was not responding properly and her behavior was rude. I would request Travel Triangle to look into issues like this.

      The agent Dream Yatra was pathetic. Our travel plan was horrible irrespective of travel iternary they were given to us. The owner imran khan and representative vishwajit are superficial in nature while talking customers like us. They are challenging us that do what you want. Please dont recommend this type of travel agents to any other travellers. Our money will not give justice against havealock trip.totally wastage of money. This was suppose to be one of the bad expereience with travel Triangle. Continental breakfast and smart and honest cab drivers

      I would like to thank Travel Triangle and White shell for the trip arrangement. Most of things went as per plan. Hotels were average, cabs were on time. The only issue happens in Havelock when our Elephanta Island Tour got cancelled due to Bad Weather and also the Ferry from Neil to Portblair got cancelled for the reason not known to us. Whiteshell has promised to refund an amount of Rs. 2850 (For cruise Cancellation) + Rs. 4770/- for cancellation of Elephanta trip. The total refund comes out to be Rs. 7620/- however we were refunded only 6600/- and It was told that they will refund the Balance as soon as they get a refund from Cruise company. But despite several follow up, even after 6 months, I have not got the balance refund of Rs. 1000/-

    • Trip to Andaman

      Hi all, This review is about my Andaman trip in the month of September i.e, monsoon season in India. So we have encountered frequent short spells of heavy rain. Scuba diving, snorkeling are must do activities. It's a unique experience in a lifetime. Due to monsoon, water is a bit turbid and sunlight is also low. For water sport activities and viewing corals, I believe November to March is a good time to visit. Do make a plan for trekking to jungle and meeting the local tribes (Jarawas etc) also. And coming to my trip plan, I have booked it via Travel triangle (TT) website. They offered flight booking also without any booking fee and comparitively I observed it is less than goibibo, mmt or any other website. Ms. Shifali of TT guided me in this aspect. After receiving multiple quotes in TT website, I have zeroed upon Sky tours as the agent. At the last hour before the trip starts one of my friend also wanted to join us. So Ms. Shanu Karotra of Sky tours coordinating during the eleventh hour very patiently. A big thanks to her. On the last day of the trip when there is no schedule for sightseeing in Port blair, upon my request Ms Shanu Karotra scheduled local visit immediately without any extra payment. Overall it's a much awaited trip and an awesome place to visit. I felt happly and satisfied with the customer service experience of Travel triangle website and Sky tours agent. Best Regards Sandeep Reddy

    FAQ's of Andaman

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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.

    The ideal duration depends on how many islands you want to cover in the Andaman. Anything from 4 nights to 9 nights can be considered the ideal duration for a blissfull vacation in the Andaman.

    Mostly there is not much of a nightlife in the Andamans. Some hotels, resorts and bars here do offer a decent nightlife. even though it is a little sedate. However, during New Year's Eve and Christmas, all of Andaman is decked up in fairy lights and the atmosphere can only be defined as electrifying.

    Andaman is famed across the world for offering some of the greatest seafood of the country. The must try dishes here include crabs, prawns, shrimps, lobsters and a huge range of fish. Vegetarian options are alsos available and are just as good.

    Once awarded as the most beautiful beach in Asia, Radhanagar Beach is a definite must visit when here. The other beaches of Andaman are also beautiful and warrant a visit.

    There are no religious restrictions as such in Andaman, but general societal niceties and etiquettes are to be followed, such as asking people, read native tribes, before taking their photographs.
