I was bitten by the travel bug at quite a young age whereas for the past five years, my wife has been my soulmate and my best travel companion. I am a Cloud Devops Engineer by profession, and my wife is a history teacher. It is indeed a blessing that she shares my enthusiasm for traveling, and being a history buff, she has added yet another perspective to our travel experiences.
We’ve traveled to many destinations in India like that of Pune, Kerala, Goa, Alibaug, Matheran, and international destinations of Malaysia, Russia, and Hong Kong. We were sure that we wanted to explore a beach destination under our budget as this was our second trip in last six months. We finally decided on Andaman over Pondicherry and when I went ahead with the process, I remembered one of my colleagues giving a good review about TravelTriangle.
All I remember is that I went on to the website of TravelTriangle, put in a request, and everything else was taken care of by the team. We customized our own trip and received the best quotes from Peace Andaman Tours & Travels. It felt as if our trip was just sorted in a matter of few clicks. With everything booked and done, we were only left with excitement to start our journey.
Day 1: Arrival, check-in, visit to the Cellular Jail, Corbyn’s Cove Beach, light & sound show in the evening.
Day 2: Arrive at Havelock Island, check-in, explore Radhanagar beach, and spend some leisure time.
Day 3: Explore Elephant beach, glass bottom boat ride, swimming, and back to Havelock Island.
Day 4: Arrive at Neil Island, check-in, visit Natural Bridge, explore Bharatpur beach, and Laxmanpur beach in the evening.
Day 5: Return to Port Blair, exploring local markets, shop for souvenirs, and visit the Bay Garden
Day 6: Breakfast, check-out from the hotel, and return to Mumbai
Witnessing Happy Blues For The First Time
On the first day, our first reaction on reaching the airport was, Wow! As the flight landed, we were stunned at the soothing blues that Andaman offered.
Post checking-in at Hotel Kavitha Regent in Port Blair, we freshened up and geared up for our first day of exploration. We started our excursion with a visit to the Cellular Jail. Walking through past was really exciting and my wife really admired the historical significance attached to the site.

Later we strolled around the beautiful Corbyn’s Cove beach and in the evening, we witnessed one of the best light & sound show at the Cellular Jail. Though it was a tiring to the core, it was quite an eventful day and we enjoyed the sightseeing a lot.
Havelock And Its Heavenly Beaches
We started our second day a bit early by 6.45 am and were transferred to Havelock Island via an inland ferry.
Enjoying good music and great views, we experienced a fun ride before we checked-in at the beautiful Havelock Island Beach Resort.
The resort had a private beach and a lush green surrounding which calmed us instantly.
Later in the afternoon, we visited the beautiful Radhanagar beach where we enjoyed a long walk along the coastline till the end of the rocky part of the beach.
It was a great and rejuvenating experience to explore one of the best beaches in the world. The beach was surrounded by dense cover of large green trees on one side and crystal clear blue waters on the other. To spend some quality time with your better half, Radhanagar beach is a picture-perfect spot.
Exploring Elephant Beach In All Its Might
On the third day, we relished a delicious breakfast and went ahead to enjoy a thrilling speedboat ride to the famous Elephant beach. On reaching the beach, we went on to enjoy the glass bottom boat ride which led us to witness the best of coral sighting ever.
Elephant beach and its environs were really nice and serene. The water too was too deep that allowed us to spend a good amount of time in swimming. It was quite a relaxing day for both of us.
In the late afternoon we rode back to Havelock Island. Due to massive waves and high tides, we experienced quite a bumpy ride which was totally thrilling and a different experience. On reaching the resort, we spent some quiet time on the private beach and called it a day.
The Mesmerizing Natural Coral Bridge
We started out early in the morning again on the fourth day and boarded the ferry to Neil island.
We checked-in at the Tango Beach Resort and continued our excursion of this unspoilt getaway.
Later in the day, we went to explore the famous Natural Coral Bridge which was magnificent indeed. Post that, we enjoyed a delicious lunch by the soothing blue waters at the Bharatpur beach.
All we could think of and do at the Bharatpur beach was to laze around as we just had one more day to enjoy the awesomeness of Andaman.
We also relished a cup of tea and hot pakodas as we watched the surreal views of the sunset at the Laxmanpur beach.
Time For Shopping And Some Sweet Indulgence
On the fifth day, we went back to Port Blair and rested for some time at the hotel. It was kind of a leisure day and in the afternoon, we went on to explore the local markets.
We tried some of the delectable sweets and shopped for beautiful souvenirs for our friends and family. Post shopping, we had a nice lunch which included some scrumptious chicken dishes and Bengali sweets for dessert.
In the evening, we visited the beautiful Bay Garden at the bay of Port Blair. We relaxed for a bit and returned to the hotel. As we had to depart the next day, we finished our dinner a bit early and retired to bed!
Bidding Adios To Andaman!
It was the last day in Andaman and we have no clue how fast the past five days went by. We finished our breakfast in the morning, checked-out of the hotel, and were transferred to the airport.
Our wonderful journey in Andaman had come to an end and with loads of memories, we boarded the flight and set back on our journey to Mumbai. Our main focus was to explore the offbeat places, local culture, good food, and we’re more than satisfied that Andaman surpassed all our expectations.
Our Priceless Memories In Andaman
Striking a perfect balance between the greens and the blues, we had a great time in this tropical paradise. Holding a great historical importance, we loved exploring and walking through the history at the Cellular Jail.
Food was yet another highlight and we enjoyed the local sea food which was a combination of Bengali, and South Indian cuisines.

Overall Experience With TravelTriangle
This was our first experience with TravelTriangle and I must say that the entire trip was totally a value for money experience.
Though we missed out on snorkeling as it was not permitted at Elephant Beach, our journey with TT was really smooth and upto our expectations. We’ve not decided on our plans yet, but we’d really love to explore either Sikkim or Singapore with TravelTriangle in the near future.
Cheers to the entire team at TravelTriangle!
