Whether you are searching for a quiet vacation or an exciting adventure filled with thrills, fun and excitement, these exotic islands will not disappoint. Plan your vacations here to immerse yourself in a magical realm far from the drudgery and turmoil of modern life.
There are a plethora of mind-blowing things to do in the Andaman islands. These charming islands in the Indian Ocean are popular tourist destinations. These islands feature a lot of white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons and nice tropical weather all year. Scuba diving, snorkelling, sea-walk and nature walks are just a few of the fantastic activities to do in Andaman.
We have compiled a list of things to do to explore the beauty of the Andaman and Nicobar islands to the fullest. Let’s begin-
Soak in the Sun at Radhanagar beach
When visiting a tropical paradise like Andaman & Nicobar, the first thing that springs to mind is picturing yourself relaxing by the quiet seaside, watching the waves crash while sipping on some gentle coconut water or reading an interesting book. You must visit Radhanagar Beach, located on Havelock island, which is often recognised as India’s best beach. The beach, which is surrounded by a beautiful green Mahua forest, provides guests with a calm setting to relax and unwind. Take a barefoot walk and enjoy the feel of the turquoise waves brushing against your toes.
Go Scuba diving on Havelock
Havelock island, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, is a veritable paradise for scuba divers. The marine life, which includes brilliantly patterned fish, exotic coral gardens and other intriguing sea creatures, abounds in the playful ocean waves of this scenic paradise. Throughout the island, there are several diving places where you can easily satisfy your thirst for an unforgettable diving experience.
Experience the fun of Snorkelling at Elephant Beach
If you’re looking for a snorkelling excursion in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, Elephant Beach is the place to go. The beach is surrounded by spectacular coral reefs and breathtaking marine scenery with a variety of small and large colourful fishes, turtles and even manatees. The snorkelling site at this beach, aptly named ‘Snorkelling Heaven of Havelock,’ begins just a metre from the shore, making it much easier for beginners and amateur divers alike to see and admire the wonderful sea world at their leisure.
Explore the history of Cellular Jail
Learning about a new place’s culture and history is an important element of any trip. And to do so, you must pay a visit to the Cellular Jail, located at Port Blair. The jail, which was originally a colonial prison, has a bleak history and serves as a stark reminder of British control in India. Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, better known as Veer Savarkar, was the most famous inmate of the Cellular Jail.
The sound and light show is one of the most interesting attractions for learning about the history of these islands and it is a superb blend of both information and enjoyment. The Sound and Light show is worth seeing if you want to see a brief presentation about India’s epic freedom movement.
Trekking at Elephant Beach and Japanese Hill
Trekking is an excellent opportunity to appreciate the island’s diverse flora and animals. Treks to Elephant Beach and Japanese Hill in Havelock, as well as treks to Mt. Harriet and Madhuban in Port Blair, are popular. Your guide will assist you in spotting unusual birds, butterflies and the occasional reptile while on the journey.
Kayaking in the Andaman islands
Kayaking is a relaxing and breath-taking adventure that may be done through the beautiful mangrove waterways. It is recommended that guided excursions be taken and renting a single or double seater kayak is a great family activity.
Because of its lush forests and deep lagoons, Havelock island is undoubtedly the greatest site to kayak in the Andaman islands. Although there are many mangrove forests on Havelock island, kayaking is only allowed at Beach No.5. You can also choose to kayak through the sea, which is a fun activity to do here.
Witness the historical ruins at Ross island
Ross island, in Port Blair, is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Previously, this location was known as the headquarters of the British Colony in the state. Due to its rich history, culture, and legacy, Ross island attracts thousands of travellers each year.
Ross island served as the headquarters or capital of the British colony from 1858 to 1942, and again from 1945 to 1947 and is now home to the ruins of buildings constructed during the British period. Some of the ruins covered in Banyan trees will remind visitors of Cambodia’s Taprohm monument.
Apart from the above-mentioned things, there are lots of things to do and lots of places to explore.
