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.

Prashant's 5 days trip to AndamanOverall the trip was well organized and we covered everything on the itinerary. Hotels were nice and we had a good time on the vacation. Only suggestion is to improve the coordination with the cabs during the various pick ups and drops.
Abdul's 4 days trip to AndamanIt was my first solo trip. One of my friends recommended giving a shot travel triangle. I explored everything and I set my mind to go with this agency. They are quite good. Well, management. I want to thanks, Shalini Ji and Kiran Ji. Just some points I want to clear Please carry BSNL sim or Airtel Sim card and carry cash if possible. Forgot the withdrawal option there. And make sure the motel you are staying has a proper wifi connection, In my case, I suffered. Andaman is a very beautiful place to explore. Himavat Destination earns my highest recommendation. Yes we are human not a machine so thoda boht galti her kisi say hota hain. Enjoy your trip . Cheers
Jindal Kuldeep's 5 days trip to AndamanIt was a wonderful trip. Service provided by traveltringle from first day to final day was awesome . I would like to continue with this agency in future . There should be option for photographs.
Meghanadeshmukh's 5 days trip to AndamanCost effective and comfortable. Good communication Scuba diving
Sushant's 6 days trip to AndamanThe travel plan and pick up and drop was extremely rigid. People on vacation go for fun and not to follow rigid timelines for pick up and drop. While the same was not followed in case of the tour plan. The elephant beach tour was cancelled for the lack of clearance from authorities for boat travel. This is understand able and beyond control of tour operator. But then while same flexibility is offered to me in deciding when and where to go. Snorkelling which was complementary and part of the tour package, was not provided . I could have managed with much lower costs had i planned all of trip on my own. I wanted to avoid the hassles so chose travel traingle for bookings. Last but not the least, the travel triangle agent assigned was not very prompt and professional in addressing my queries. I had to follow up till last day before the travel to get my travel tickets.
Hiran's 4 days trip to AndamanA memorable honeymoon trip to Andaman..!!! The tour package was customized as per our needs and the rooms were booked as per our wish. The travelographer got in touch with us to have a wonderful photoshoot at Radhanagar beach too. Realy loved that part. Cab drivers were so polite and helpful in accompanying us to the holiday spots. Only problem we faced was at Havelock island where we were not provided with the hotel as mentioned in itenary. We had to wait for around 2 hours to get a room in hotel. But the hotel which was provided later was better than the one promised in itenary.

The boat ride and walk to limestone cave in baratang, sunsets in radhanagar beach and chidiya tapu , scuba diving in Havelock, these were exceptional.
