I had always wanted a honeymoon in Andaman and I am glad to tell you that my wish was fulfilled and together with my husband and I had the best experience ever!
We booked our Andaman honeymoon package via TravelTriangle (found on Facebook). It was a very smooth process and in the end, their multiple quote system worked to our advantage since we were able to get the best deal and itinerary.

Day 1: Hello Port Blair
Suggested Read: A Digital Detox Family Trip To Andaman
We started our journey early in the morning at 5 and reached the airport on time. After having a quick breakfast, we boarded our flight (2 hours 15 min journey) and then landed in Port Blair. The airport was a small one and upon our arrival, we were greeted by our travel agent’s representative who transferred us to our hotel.
It is worth noting that when we arrived, it was raining like cats and dogs and we almost felt like we were in Chirapunji, the worlds wettest place.
After our check in, we slept for around four hours (and mind you, it was very chilly!) post which we went for sightseeing at Corbyn’s Cove beach. Here we did the jet ski ride and it was such a fantastic experience that by the end of it, our fear of the sea had gone away.
Later after relaxing and chilling on the beach, we proceeded to the Cellular Jail for sightseeing. The whole Cellular jail experience for me was extremely moving since it was really tragic to know about the treatment of prisoners and how they were exploited. During the whole tour, it was sometimes difficult to understand what they were telling in Hindi and this is also the moment, I realized, I need to prep up my Hindi skills.
Tip: Don’t forget to use the mosquito roll on before visiting the jail.
Day 2: Havelock Island, you beauty!

We were to stay at the Havelock island today so once our driver had dropped us to the port to board our ferry, we came to know that it was delayed by two hours. Nonetheless, we weren’t disheartened and spent our time clicking selfies and exploring the port.
Trust me there was no internet and still, our time passed away in a jiffy!
Later on the ferry, I was so excited that for a while my husband and I were only clicking pictures. After a while, when the ferry started, we fastened our seat belts and soon fell into a smooth sea slumber. It felt as if the ocean winds were like lullabies.
If Havelock was love at first sight then Radhanagar beach (Asia’s best beach) was eternal love at first sight! It was amazing just to be here with my husband and explore it on our own. We played at the beach for a long time and at around 5 when it started to rain, it was only then that we decided to go back to our hotel.
Our dinner was at a place called “Red Snapper” and it was delicious.

Day 3: Scuba diving adventure
We got up early in the morning at 4 and visited the beach number 4 just behind our resort. We wanted to experience the sunrise in Andaman and we did. And to be honest, it was magnificent. Later at around 7, by the time, we were done, other people started arriving at this beautiful beach and we felt really good to have witnessed it in peace in the wee hours of the morning.
“There is only BSNL signal in Andaman and being out of touch with people almost feels like you’re back in the olden times!”
Later on, we proceeded to do our scuba diving but before doing it, we were made to fill a form and given proper training. The training part was excellent since the instructor was good that he instilled confidence in me too, who is a nonswimmer.
Our scuba diving experience was equally breathtaking and going down in the waters almost felt as if I was in a different world. It was as if the Discovery channel was playing in front of my eyes. A surreal feeling that is hard to put into words!
By the time we were done with this activity, we were already late – so after quickly taking our diving pictures, we rushed to board the ferry! Fortunately, we did not miss it.
The ferry scene was similar to the last time for me and I soon fell asleep on it. (My husband later told me I slept through all the panic on the ferry!)
Back in Port Blair, we had our meal and then called it a night.
Day 4: Good times in Port Blair
The boats to Ross Island were not functioning today due to bad weather. So we visited Wandoor beach, had a lovely lobster meal and then by 4, booked another trip to a beach at an extra cost of INR 1200. This beach was a nice one and we had a good time exploring it.

Later after returning, we explored the streets of Port Blair on our own and then returned to our hotel for the overnight stay.
Tip: Local transport is really cheap in Port Blair.
Day 5: The incredible Baratang experience!

We explored the Baratang caves today and for that, we had to leave by 2 am (yes, in the night!). By the time, we reached (5 am) the place, we were shocked to see hundreds of travelers already there. After a quick breakfast and some formalities, we were given permission to enter. We were greeted by Jarawas and I was taken aback by all the greenery that surrounded the area.
Later after a 20-minute boat ride, we entered the Mangroves and it was at this point that we felt, we were part of the famous Hollywood movie “Anaconda”. Later, we trekked for a kilometer and then reached the limestone caves (a fascinating experience!). We had “nimbu pani” on our way back and once back in Port Blair, we did some shopping before calling it a day.
Day 6: Goodbye Andaman, you will be missed!
This was our last day and we did not want to leave. But we had to. My husband did all the packing today and I was spending it at ease. Later, we got to the airport and boarded our flight back to Chennai.
Andaman was a dream come true experience for me. It was so refreshing that it is hard to put in words and so experiential that it would always stay in our hearts. Thank you Andaman, for a perfect honeymoon!
