Things to do in Andaman
The Andaman Islands look undisturbed by human activities on the first approach, but that’s hardly the case when the islands are bustling with tourist crowd during the peak season in Andaman. These dreamy islands – lit up in sunset radiance – have all the ingredients to make a honeymoon getaway or a family vacation unforgettable. From jet skiing at North Bay Island to scuba diving at Radhanagar Beach and from climbing the highest mountain at Diglipur to sea-walking under the shallow waters, let’s take a look at all the things to do in Andaman during your tropical escape.
Like discovering underwater corals and sailing above an island in a parachute, there is plenty of things to do in Andaman and Nicobar islands for travellers. Learning about Island’s history at the Cellular Jail, paying a visit to the zoo at Chidiya Tapu and the Anthropological Museum, and some retail therapy with dining at Aberdeen Bazaar are quintessential activities to do during a normal sightseeing in Port Blair.
The capital city is an ideal launch-pad for exploring nearby islands via boat and towns via taxis. Travellers take a one-hour ferry ride from Port Blair to reach the scenic Havelock Island, the second largest island in Andaman archipelago. The island features a string of white sandy beaches like Radhanagar Beach, Kala Pathar Beach, Vijay Nagar Beach, Govind Nagar Beach, and Elephant Beach.
Travellers can have some fun under the sun by indulging in swimming, diving, kayaking, and sunbathing in Andaman. Auto rickshaws and shared taxis are available here for people to check out all the beaches in the vicinity.
Some of the top scuba fishing sites in Andaman are at beaches in Havelock Island. Explore vivid coral formations and learn about marine life during an underwater dive. Couples on honeymoon and families on holiday can take pre-dive training and beginner’s session before taking a dive. One session of scuba diving can last up to two hours. Scuba diving and snorkelling is an activity that can be enjoyed by both professional divers and non-swimmers. The Lighthouse, the Wall, Minerva Lodge, Dixon's Pinnacle, and Johnny’s Gorge are popular dive sites in Andaman.
Sea-walking – one of the most rewarding activities in Andaman – includes walking on sea bottom for 25 minutes. Perfect for people of all ages, this is a wholesome family experience to have on your holiday in Andaman. Game fishing in the Andaman Islands is another favourite pastime of locals and travellers alike. There’s nothing like sharing an anecdote with a local and sitting comfortably in a comfy boat waiting for your next catch.
For those who have had enough of the beach can try jungle trekking. Local operators take travellers on beautiful trails in the Mount Harriet National Park. Home to rich native flora and fauna, this national park allows opportunities for bird watching, nature viewing, and picnicking.

Prasad's 7 days trip to AndamanOverall a good Andaman experience! Cab drivers were punctual and polite (with few exceptions). Breakfast service was average, couple of instances of the hotel management not offering any! There's definitely a bit scope of improvement for room comfort and quality. Cruise experience for travelling from one island to the other was awesome. Covered all of the itineraries as per trip schedule. Happy memories overall!
Lavnesh's 8 days trip to AndamanLack of knowledge about the hotel's room. If you ask for the difference they don't know. I did the full payment almost 2 weeks earlier from my trip date and asked for hotel and cruise tickets. But they didn't give me until the last date of the trip.
