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.

Gulshan's 5 days trip to AndamanI would like to share my experience with travel triangle as i booked my trip through this app for honeymoon. Hotels that they suggested were really good and met the expectations and was also good. All the drivers were punctual and really helped us in knowing the place guided us well. Yugal as a travel agent is excellent and helped us alot with choosing the place to stay and gave us good options to pick from. Also he was available all the time. He assured that he would be available throughout the trip as well if we want anything but we didn't feel the need to contact as everything was planned very well by him. As far as planning trips in the future i would definitely love to book the trip through travel triangle only and also i would strongly recommend the same to friends and family.
Abhishek's 5 days trip to AndamanWorst experience and unprofessional team. The hotel provided in Port Blair was going through renovation and it was stinky and smelly(as paint was going on) and there was Ants inside room as well. I didn't wanted to check in at all but they told sir keep bag inside room and lets go for tour by the return time we will sort it out but they didn't do anything and worst part is they gave me same hotel again in last day. Similarly hotel which was given to me in Niel Island by marketing it as 3 star property resort can't afford to turn AC on when there is no power. Worst part was port Blair hotel even after reaching out to agent no one responded properly and they were not professional at all and simply arguing me to pay more money to change hotel and that was the reason they gave . And my so called trip guide(Kiran Kamal 9643796878) who was in continuously touch with me till time i paid the money after that when i tried to reach out to her from Andaman she didn't responded even the customer support number in your website doesn't help. And once i left port blair you guys know that network situation in other Island so couldn't contact.
