Explore andamans

My trip to Andaman was planned long before I went there. Even after a lot of research what I discovered that you cannot predict andamans. You have to be well prepared for your trip but the weather conditions can always surprise you.
It's a beautiful place for nature and beach lovers. Clean town make you wonder about their dedication towards community.
For watersports, it's the best place though not having advanced facilities yet, but some less explored islands are wonders to watch especially Ross island and if going for scuba diving there are many islands but better do it on Neil island and early morning as the water is clear and neat.
Please don't forget baratang trip, it's a one day trip towards limestone caves, but the whole experience of reaching their by steamer than speed boat was amazing and in between if you are lucky you will explore rare tribals who are still raw and unmechanised.
Havelock island has radhanagar beach which is the most beautiful beach in Asia.
Extremely refreshing trip to Andaman s is a must in your bucket list.

Primarily a place to relax

1. This place is primarily meant for relaxation. Thus, it is a PERFECT destination for honeymoon. Please do not get taken in by the "package" tour sellers since it is not the kind of destination to cover in such a tour. They will sell anything as a package to make money.
2. 90% of the value of the tour in South Andaman lies in Havelock Island. It is paradise. Rest of it is waste of time and money. Not worth spending so much on airfare and expensive stay just to see some extremely poorly maintained ruins in Ross Island, a dirty strip of rocky beach head in North Island and such other things.
3. The Cellular Jail is maintained in good condition. However, its Light and Sound show is primitive, typical insipid sarkari stuff.
4. The government has to improve tourism infratructure in the islands. In its absence, bandits are looting in the name of tourism. A typical example is the scaled Mini-submarine in North Island. You will be poorer by a cool Rs. 6000 for a family of 4 for a dip lasting 20-25 minutes among what really are some underwater rocks and sand. I believe GOI is on the job. Especially, to develop North Andaman, which is a very good idea.
5. So what is good about it? As said, Havelock ... Spend at least 3-4 days there. Makruzz is good. The azure waters on a bright sunny day is heavenly. The general absence of crowds is relaxing. No pollution. No crime. Generally helpful people. No language problem. North Andaman is out of this world but, remote. Meant only for bravehearts.

Andaman & Nicobar Overview

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a Union Territory of India. This is a group of 572 islands, islets and rocks formed by a submarine mountain range in the Bay of Bengal, more than a 1000km from the east coast of India. The islands form an arc over a distance of 800km, from near Myanmar towards Indonesia.   The original inhabitants of the islands are many tribal groups. Over the last century due to the policy of settling people from mainland India here, the indigenous tribes are facing extinction. These tribes belong to two groups: the Onge, Sentinelese, Jarawa and Andamanese of Negroid descent inhabit Andaman islands, while the Shompen and Nicobarese live in Nicobar Islands. Non-Indian nationals need permits to visit Andaman Islands while the Nicobar Islands are inaccessible to tourists.   The Andaman Islands are divided into South, Middle and North Andaman. The islands are important for their unique ecosystem and are known for their evergreen tropical rainforest, corals, fishes and other marine life. Port Blair is the capital, the main town and the tourist hub in these islands.   In Port Blair the Cellular Jail was part of the British penal settlement during their rule in India and is now a national monument. The Chatham Saw Mill is one of the oldest and largest saw mills in Asia. Mount Harriet is the second highest peak in Andaman Islands and ideal for trekking and bird watching. Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park at Wandoor comprises 15 islands and offers a rich variety of marine life and activities like snorkeling and glass bottomed boat rides. Andaman Water Sports Complex is under repairs after the damage due to the tsunami in 2004. It offers water surfing, skiing, water scooters, etc.   Havelock Island is known for the Radhanagar Beach and for scuba diving, snorkeling and mangrove creeks. From here one can visit other islands like Neil Island and Long Island. Baratang, Rangat, Mayabandar and Diglipur are known for their unspoilt beaches.
