Andaman Weather In February
We visited the Andaman in the month of May. Featuring a tropical climate, Andaman was a mixed bag of weather. Though the temperature was around 30 to 34 degrees Celsius, we explored the island with pretty ease. The turquoise blue waters and the sandy beaches made us feel comfortable all through our stay.
Best Things To Do In Andaman Honeymoon
Besides the scenic wonders and pleasant weather, Andaman is also about its marine life and various adventure activities that travelers can indulge in. Here are some of the things that were included in our 5 days Andaman tour itinerary.
1. Relaxing On The Radha Nagar Beach
On one of the days of our trip, we visited the Radha Nagar Beach. This place is an unforgettable curve of white sand with perfectly colored waters and believe me it is a spectacular and romantic spot and a must-visit place for all the couples. The beach has the best fruit seller, behl puri, cheap restaurants and a lot of activities for the travelers to indulge in. We clicked plenty of amazing pictures and spent quality time with my beloved.
2. Indulging In Thrilling And Adventurous Water Sports
One of the days of our 5 days Andaman tour itinerary included a day on the island began with a fantastic scuba diving experience. The early morning fresh air and the cool waters gave a kick-start to our day. Our scuba diving expert was very friendly and helped us understand how to go about the whole thing. I and my wife had never done something like this before and getting close to the beautiful underwater marine life left us awestruck. Next we visited the Elephant Beach and it is no less than a “Heaven On Earth” as well as one of the best attractions in Andamans. The beach offers a lot of activities like snorkeling, jet skiing and banana ride. Besides unlimited fun, one can also experience forest life. There is a good arrangement for travelers along with changing rooms and food kiosk. If we ever happen to visit Andaman again, we will surely come back to this place.
3. Go For Sightseeing
The beauty of Andaman cannot be ignored. We visited the Bharatpur beach which is undoubtedly the best beach of Andaman. However, the place is clearly underrated but we were mesmerized to enjoy views of the crystal clear water and we could also spot turtles swimming. One can go for jet skiing while visiting the island. In the second half we visited laxmanpur beach, with its natural beauty and white sands, it’s very quiet and serene and one can enjoy a peaceful walk down to the sunset point. The walk was one of the best memories of our honeymoon in Andaman.
Places To Stay In Andaman
Andaman is full of a lot of exquisite properties to stay at and our 5 days Andaman tour itinerary included some of the best accommodations. On our trip, our first destination was the Havelock Island and we stayed there for two days. We stayed at the Havelock Island beach resort and truly it was one of the best accommodations. The resort enjoys proximity to the important attractions of the place. We enjoyed a lot at the private beach area of the hotel. While spending time on the Neil Island, we stayed at the Reef Valley Resort. The resort also offers a variety of water activities like scuba diving, sea walking, jet skiing, and parasailing. These were truly some of the good places to stay in Andaman. At Port Blair, due to last minute confusion, we stayed at some other property which was a little below our expectations.
Street Shopping In Andaman
While on the island, one must not worry about where to shop in Andaman since there are plenty of options available around. However, most of the things are very costly. We recommend travelers to go for some street shopping and buy some amazing souvenirs like small ships and shankhas. Some cheap clothing options are also available around the place.
Some Andaman Travel Tips
- Please confirm your hotels or resort twice with your Travel Agency.
- It’s better to book your air tickets before 5-6months.
- Have a good amount of cash because there are very less ATMs.
- Have BSNL connection for better communication and it is also very common in Andaman.
Our Experience With Travel Triangle
The travel agency that Travel Triangle connected to was GSK Travels and the team did a fantastic job. Water sports activities at elephant beach, scuba diving at Havelock and the visit to the Cellular Jail were all well-planned. The cab drivers were punctual but the only thing that did not meet our expectations was the accommodation at Port Blair. Rest everything went well and it was the best Andaman tour itinerary we could ever plan.
