  • The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are an Indian paradise. The small cluster of islands boasts of sprawling beaches with soft, sandy shores and intense blue water as clear as glass. The rich archipelago around the islands is a naturalist’s delight as it houses a host of exotic aquatic creatures and coral reefs which add a splash of colour to the blueness of the sea. 

    Watersports are undoubtedly the most famous among the list of activities available in Andaman. If you have narrowed down on Andaman and Nicobar as the place where you wish to celebrate your honeymoon, you have made an excellent decision.

    There are a variety of tourist hotspots in Andaman- Havelock Island, Port Blair and Neil Island being among the top destinations. Port Blair is the central hotspot by virtue of its busy airport which sees thousands of tourists arrive daily. All the other islands in Andaman are well-connected to Port Blair via sea and air. 

    You can easily reach Port Blair via air or sea from Chennai, Kolkata, Bhubaneshwar, and Visakhapatnam. Ferry boats, both government-operated and privately run, are great for intra-island connectivity apart from helicopters and seaplanes. Though the weather remains pleasant year-round, the best time to visit it is from November to May which is the dry season.
