How to reach Andaman

Explore the scenic beaches, dense forests and pristine islands of Andaman and Nicobar and have a fun and mesmerizing time. Relax on the glistening beaches like Elephant Beach, Wandoor beach, Bharatpur Beach, Sitapur Beach, Radhanagar Beach and Laxmanpur Beach.

These beaches are also perfect for watersports like snorkelling, scuba diving and sea walking where you can get that adrenaline rush and have an enjoyable holiday. The best time to visit Andaman is during the winter season from November to March and the weather generally stays cool and pleasant.

For those planning a trip here and wondering how to reach Andaman, you should read on to find out more. There are only two ways to get to these islands: by air and by sea as they are situated off the Southern coast of India.

For those who are wondering how to reach Andaman by sea, you can travel by three to four ships every month that all leave from Kolkata, Vizag and Chennai. There are at present 2 ships - MV Swarajdweep and MV Nancowry- from Chennai and the MV Akbar and MV Nicobar from Kolkata. You can also travel by ferry to Andaman from both Kolkata and Chennai and Kolkata ports and the best ferry service in this regard is the MV Harshavardan. Ships generally take about 3-4 days to reach the Port Blair deck.

There are several permits required to enter the Andaman islands for both foreigners and Indians. If you are a foreign national, you can stay in the Andaman and Nicobar islands for 30 days. If you want to extend it by another 15 days, you will have to take permission to stay from the immigration authorities. In addition, you can also get permits from Foreigner’s Registration Offices at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Calcutta and Indian Missions Overseas as well as the immigration authorities at the airports at Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Calcutta.

You can get a permit for night halt at Middle Andaman Island, Little Andaman Island (except tribal reserve), South Andaman Island, Neil Island, Long Island, Havelock Island, Baratang, Diglipur, North Passage and islands in the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park (excluding islands – Twin, Boat Hobday, Malay, Pluto and Tarmugli).

You can get a permit for day halt at Ross Island, South Cinque Island, Narcondum Island, Brother Island, Interview Island, Barren Island and Sister Island.

If you are an Indian national, you will need not any permit to visit the Andaman islands. However, you will need a permit to visit Nicobar Islands and other tribal areas. You can apply on a prescribed form and address it to the Deputy Commissioner, Andaman District, Port Blair.

Entire trip including sight seeing, inland transfer and stay were managed very well and I have not faced even a single hiccup.

    FAQ's of Andaman

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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.
