Trip Report Andamans: The Heavenly Islands

Jump to last reply

India as a tourist destination has a lot to offer - from the Himalayas in the north, the jungles of central India, deserts of Rajasthan, beaches of Goa and a lot of monuments. One does forget that India also has the Andaman islands, which can compete with any global destination in terms of its beauty.

I had a chance to visit the islands on a family vacation in September of 2012. It was a short 4-5 day trip with Port Blair, the capital of the islands being our base location. We made day trips to Havelock islands (a 2 hour ferry) and also to the North Bay and Ross Islands (across the bay from Port Blair).

Havelock offers great beaches and great water sport opportunities. North Bay is a closer-to-Port Blair version of Havelock islands, where one can do all water sports (though it is recommended in Long Island or Havelock Island). Ross Island was the administrative capital when the British were ruling the islands.

Port Blair as a city also has things to offer to tourists in the form of beaches and the Cellular Jail (where a number of Indian freedom fighters were imprisoned by the British).
