Turquoise blue ocean water, endless stretch of spotless white sandy beaches, dense mangrove forest cover and marshland, an exotic variety of aquatic life, and long history, all are the defining aspects of these large groups of islands, Andaman & Nicobar.
The Nicobar Islands are still out of reach for tourism and are restricted for the sustainability of the tribal way of life in the region. The Andaman Islands, South Andaman in particular, allow tourists and visitors with an open heart. Ross Island, Havelock Island, and Neil Island are on the itinerary for everyone planning to explore the tropical paradise.
Being 1500 km away from the mainland, Andaman Islands offer the ultimate experience when it comes to water sports and adventurous activities in the sea. Sunrise and sunset points are spread across the islands. Local handicrafts and cuisines are add-ons for foodies and shopaholics.
Languages commonly used in the region are Hindi, Bangla, and Tamil.
When to Travel?
Precipitation and high tides can play a spoilsport. Being in the tropical region, rainfall is quite frequent for most of the time of the year. The best time for visiting the Andaman Islands is from December to April. During this period, chances of rainfall are very low and sea waves are gentle.
