Planning a honeymoon was not really an easy task, while there were a lot of destinations that came to our mind, we were stuck between Goa and Andaman. When I asked my wife to choose one amongst Goa and Andaman for our honeymoon, she selected Andaman, for, natural beauty and serenity was her preference. And thanks to her smart mind, it was the best decision. It could not be a more surreal experience. For us, Andaman was great fun, individually as well as together.

5 Best Experiences Of Andaman Trip In February
From blissful places to heart-rending experiences, our Andaman trip from Kolkata was a dreamy affair. Here are some details about the trip!
1. Knowing The History Through Cellular Jail
Standing as the epitome to all the suffering that occurred during the colonial period, Cellular jail was really an important place for us to visit. We found the place very impressive in terms of history. There is a cell inside the jail where Veer Savarkar was kept in custody in the past. It was quite amusing for us. Apart from that, the roof of the jail offered scenic views of the city.
2. Having The Best Quality Time At Radhanagar Beach
Our Andaman trip from Kolkata became all the more exciting when we went for a tour of the beautiful and awe-inspiring Havelock island. One of the most famous beaches on the island is the Radhanagar beach. The beach is known for white sandy shores and palm trees that offer the perfect setting for a romantic day out. Straight out of a paradise, it is very popular amongst couples. We enjoyed it a lot and clicked great pictures. This was one of the best parts of our Kolkata to Andaman honeymoon trip.
3. Lifting Our Spirits While Snorkeling At Elephant Beach
Since Elephant beach is known for offering crazy experiences of water sports, we were really excited about it. While the water was as clear as crystal, the underwater scene was even more heart-throbbing. It has a rich marine life and so we saw a lot of coral reefs while snorkeling. The experience was completely unique and memorable. The journey all the way from Kolkata to Port Blair was worth it, thanks to such good places and heart-throbbing experiences.
4. Being Mesmerized By The Natural Bridge
As we reached Neil island, we were left awestruck by the beauty of the island and realized that planning an Andaman trip from Kolkata turned out to be a real bliss for both of us. While Bharatpur beach and Laxmanpur beach were amazing, the natural bridge had a woo factor in it that made us love the very idea of it. It is a bridge-like rock formed naturally. It gave us a really enthralling experience. We were told that the bridge is also known as the Howrah bridge.
5. A Perfect Date Night At Love Garden Cafe
These 5 days in Andaman were the best days of our lives. As we enjoyed each and every part of the trip, we got to know each other well, our best qualities came forth and it strengthened our bond. Saying goodbye was difficult but before that, we had the most romantic date at Love Garden cafe that made us even more close and nostalgic too. The food at the cafe was very delicious and the views too. We talked, laughed and ate our hearts out!
Our Hotels In Andaman
One of our major concerns while traveling from Kolkata to Port Blair was whether the hotels were up to our expectations or not. And to our glee, they were absolutely what we wanted! The rooms of the hotels were clean and mostly equipped with the necessary amenities.
Our first hotel was quite a convenient place as it was nearby the airport and offered great views. The rooms were pretty clean. The staff was also friendly. We liked the in-house restaurant as well. Upon our request, they decorated our room which looked flawlessly beautiful.
Radhakrishna Beach Resort
This was one of the most blissful places to stay during our trip to Andaman from Kolkata. The cottages seemed like bamboo huts and gave great beachy vibes. The resort was nearby the beach and market. The resort offered lush greenery and peaceful stay.
Pearl Park Beach Resort
For us, this was the best resort on our whole trip! Aptly located near the Laxmanpur beach, the resort provided world-class facilities. From the shack area to the in house restaurant, everything was simply amazing.
The rooms of this hotel were quite lavish and the location was good too. However, they needed a few improvements. Otherwise, our stay experience in this hotel was also great!
Shopping In Andaman
We didn’t do much shopping on our Andaman trip from Kolkata. However, if you are in Port Blair, Aberdeen bazaar is one of the best markets from where you can buy souvenirs. We also found Cellular jail’s market a good place to buy souvenirs. In comparison to that, the markets at the islands that we visited were very costly. For instance, on Havelock island, we found everything too costly. Even on Neil island, the items were a bit expensive, though we did buy a few things. You just need to have very good bargaining skills and you are good to go!
