Blessed with diversity of topography with plains, high range mountains, beautiful cliffs and spectacular islands, India is home to some of the world’s most enchanting holiday locations and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands are just another example of this.
In spite of being a popular tourist destination, the beauty of Andaman is in its peace and tranquility. The calming waves of the sea, the pristine beaches with simmering sand as far as the eye can see. The Andaman & Nicobar Islands have tropical climate & is a paradise for eco-tourists and adventure sport junkies. The rain forests on these islands shelter more than 3000 species of plants and birds.
One of the best ways to enjoy Andaman is actually to do so on a budget. Flights to Andaman from most Indian cities are not cheap so if you’re thinking you’d rather enjoy a vacation abroad, then you might be missing out on a vacation of a lifetime. Not only is Andaman full of natural beauty, but the people here are warm and friendly and an Andaman holiday package is actually a great way to experience their wonderful culture.
Though only 36 islands are habitable out of 572 islands in Andaman and Nicobar, it doesn’t snatch the opportunity of island hopping from its visitors, because every island has something unique to offer and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the country.
Start your journey from Port Blair, which is the capital of these islands. From here you can take the government ferries to travel to various islands. Some of the most important islands to hop for include Neil Island, Havelock Island, which also offer plethora of water sports activities, scuba diving being one of the most adventurous.
Instead of Andaman packages that typically include resorts and fancy hotels with meal plans, exploring the many islands by yourself means you get the best deals on food and accommodation. Take the volcano tour in the Barren island, charter a boat, join groups or trek to reach Elephant Beach – one of the best places to see in Andaman.
Guides will assist you during your trip to the Elephant Beach. This is the second best attraction at Havelock Island after Radhanagar Beach. You are allowed to carry your own snorkeling equipment here too. This is great way to save some money if you already own diving equipment.
