Andaman - Holiday Tour Packages
Make the Andaman Islands your next holiday destination - The Andaman Islands are long fabled among travelers from around the world for their legendary beaches and world-class diving located in the middle of nowhere, and are still an ideal place to have a getaway. As you can see, these islands are surrounded by lovely opaque emerald waters bordering snow-white beaches and have primeval jungles and mangrove forests.
Location and demographics of Andaman Islands
Adding to the intrigue regarding the Andaman Islands is its remote location, which is some 1,370 kilometers from mainland India, which means that islands are geographically more in Southeast Asia—150 kilometers from Indonesia and 190 kilometers from Myanmar. The population here comprises a friendly “masala” of South Asian settlers, as well as Negrito ethnic groups, whose arrival to the islands has still baffled anthropologists.
Places to visit in Andaman Islands
You will not be spoilt for choice when it comes to attractions and places to visit in the Andaman Islands. Here are top places to visit in Andaman Islands that should be included in your itinerary:
- Port Blair - Though surrounded by rugged coastlines and an attractive lush forest, Port Blair is more or less your typical Indian town serving as the provincial capital of the Andaman Islands. It is a vibrant mix of Indian Ocean inhabitants, so it has a fascinating history, making it worth for some sightseeing and exploration.
- Havelock Island - This island is known for its snow-white beaches, a coast crammed with huts and teal shallows, not to mention some of the best diving spots in South Asia. Also, Havelock is well-reputed as a backpacker paradise. For many tourists in the Andaman Islands, this particular island represents the entire destination, where many holidaymakers are content to stay here for the entire vacation.
- Neil Island - A vacation to the Andaman Islands would not be complete without a visit to this island, which is famous for its tranquility that is conducive to a more relaxed holiday. Though its beaches may not be as luxurious as those on the Havelock, they have ample character that is perfect to explore on a bike.
While the archipelago comprises some 300 islands, only a few is open to tourists, with Havelock as the most popular for diving and its beautiful beaches.
Things to do in Andaman Islands
While in Andaman Islands, you will have many activities that can make your holiday more worthwhile. As a place with great beaches, you can do some snorkeling, diving, other water sports or just relax at the beach, sipping your favorite drinks and munching on delicious food. At the Saddle Peak (the highest point in the Andamans), you can trek through the subtropical, where views onto the archipelago are amazing. While an inter-island helicopter service is not for tourists, you can test your luck to have it by applying a day before at the Directorate of Civil Aviation office.
Insider Tips - You can travel to the Andaman Islands by direct air connection from Kolkata or Chennai. On the islands you can hire a bicycle or a motorbike to get around. Just watch out for taxis and auto-rickshaws, as they are few and public transportation is not recommended owing to the limited time you would have on the island.
Andaman holiday packages
The Andaman Islands climate is tropical, where temperatures remain in the 22 to 32 degrees Celsius bracket throughout the year. However, the annual monsoon brings heavy rain from May to September, which makes these months unsuitable for Andaman holiday Packages. The best season to choose from available Andaman holiday packages is from October to April, when it is not too windy and is dry.
