Places to visit in Andaman
Andaman and Nicobar Islands rise out of the Bay of Bengal like a handful of pearls in the ocean. The remotest territory of India is poles apart from the mainland in every way. Travellers come here after a short flight or a long voyage from India’s east coast to enjoy the exotic vistas that mainland lacks.
Sightseeing in Andaman includes a visit to pristine beaches, far-flung islands, and lush interior forests. Let’s take a look at some of the best places to visit in Andaman. The city of Port Blair has a layered history and remains the most sought-after places to visit in Andaman. Trace Second World War and British Raj-era history at Cellular Jail National Memorial. The 1857 Freedom Fighters Memorial documents the unwavering courage of freedom fighters of the 1857’s Revolution. Take a guided tour of the Anthropological Museum to learn about the lives of the indigenous tribes and the Samudrika Naval Marine Museum in Port Blair allows a glimpse into the biodiversity of marine life.
It’s difficult to pick the best beach in Andaman as there are several contenders that take the cake. Just a short day’s trip on a boat takes travellers to some of the most unspoilt, glorious beaches in the world. Fishing at Wandoor Beach in the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park and sunbathing at Kalapathar Beach are popular things to do in Andaman. While North Bay Beach offers a unique experience of sea-walking, Radhanagar Beach at Havelock Island has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Asia.
Elephant safari to explore the surrounding forests near Mount Harriet is another popular activity to do on a sunny day. Ross Island and Jolly Buoy Island can be reached via jetty from Port Blair. Barren Island features the only volcano in India. Chidiya Tapu is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers. Travellers on sightseeing tours admire the natural formation of Limestone Caves at Baratang Island and walk through tropical woods.
Home to the highest peak in Andaman, Diglipur lies north of Port Blair. It is famous for being the site of turtle nesting, ideal crocodile sanctuaries, and its cave network. Diglipur Church, Turtle Nesting Point, and Pathi Level Beach, Limestone Caves are also popular places to visit in Andaman for honeymoon. Howrah Bridge, Chatham Saw Mill, Phoenix Bay Jetty, Corbyn’s Cove, Sitapur Beach, and Jogger’s Park also rank among the top tourist places in Andaman.

Priyanka's 4 days trip to AndamanEverything was good. But next time please inform the pick up person to pick up the tourists from hotel by checking them out with the hotel manager by their name and not the people who check out of hotel.

Chanduapple's 5 days trip to AndamanOverall it was a nice and good trip, GSK travels had very good contacts in Andaman, all car drivers were on time , nice, helpful and executed the plan perfectly as per trip itenary. we got all cruise tickets before start of first cruise it self. havelock , neil isalnds are must go places, amazing beaches and water sports. only disappointment in the trip is complimentary snorkeling session is not free as promised, we have to pay 1K from our pocket in elephant beach. and hotel in neil island does not have power backup even though it rated as 3 star. to add to that, there is no power or low voltage from midnight. no break fast options only poori subgi available. if possible please avoid lakshmi continental. otherwise everything else fine. we had nice memorable trip.

Samir's 6 days trip to AndamanIt was great to plan with travel triangle and Amazing memories.I woul like to thanks White Shell for their services and my trip was well managed By Mr Anil and Raji Mam.Best Memories of my Trip of Andman is From Havelock Island's Radhanagar Beach. RAJI MADAM WAS VERY HELPFUL AND WAS AVAILABLE THROUGH OUT THE TRIP. ANIL WAS ALSO GREAT DRIVER. HE WAS VERY PROMPT ON TIMINGS AND WAS HELPING US TO BE ON TIME.
Jagadish's 7 days trip to AndamanThe tour was well planned. But, everywhere, we had to call the coordinators to know our plan for the day. Muneer who met us in Port Blair on the first day, needs to improve his attitude. He was negative in outlook and would say no before considering the options. Most of them didn't appear as coordinators. Bette people who can speak English need to be in place. Ibrahim and Surya, who drove us around in Port Blair were most positive and genial in their approach. The cabs were late in coming to pick us up from the hotels on a few instances. Nicholas, who was our contact for organising the trip was very positive and responsive. We took tjis travel company mostly because of him, as there were other companies web were in touch with.
Subodh's 8 days trip to AndamanTrip was Awesome. Services provided by agent ( Amit dass ) was brilliant. Only concern is that the food provided by hotels ( especially SR Castle ) was very costly.
Hariharanc's 4 days trip to AndamanVery gud ppl helped us lot in my journey Shanu very kind person assisted me throughout the trip

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.
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.
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.
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.
