Look it up anywhere and this is one of the must-have experiences when you’re in Andaman. I can’t describe it in words, but if you’re an Indian you’re going to be moved by the portrayal. It’s a beautiful depiction of the era of struggle that will give you goosebumps. Actors like Om puri have voiced the show which further adds to its beauty.

2. Beach life is the best life!

We spent our first day in Andaman at the Carbine’s Cove Beach where we enjoyed the mesmerizing views and the cool water. On our trip we also happened to catch the sunset at Radhanagar Beach which I’ve got to say is an experience of its own. They don’t call it the 7th best beach in the world for nothing. You just can’t skip out on this one when in Andaman.

3. Jump, Dive, Explore!

Of all the things to do in Andaman, the water sports are the most exciting part! Taking a dive into the ocean and exploring the exotic marine life is a serene experience. The Elephanta beach in Havelock Island has some wonderful beach activities. We went for snorkelling and it was a thrilling experience. Both my wife and I had a blast! We also happened to enjoy a jet ski ride which was just as fun.

4. The beauty of Neil Island

If you are one for marine life, this is the place to be! Colorful fishes, beautiful coral reefs, sea cucumbers, star fish and so much more that you can spot. We got some really great photos here, right next to one of the major attractions on the island which was the natural bridge and rock formation. The island is quite peaceful compared to the other ones and simply a great place to relax and enjoy some time with your special one.

5. Get set to trek!

While we covered most of what Andaman had to offer, my wife and I also decided to take the trek to Chidiya Tapu. It was quite a walk (3 km) but once you’re at the top, it all seems worth it. A good life lesson, if you will? On our way up, the weather was pleasant and we surrounded by beautiful trees and birds chirping all around. Once we reached the top, we head to the sunset point, which my-oh-my was a beautiful sight and a great way to end our little holiday on this beautiful island nation.
