Andaman and Nicobar islands are sure a traveler’s delight.
Abound in nature’s beauty and coupled with some of the most beautiful, pristine beaches, Andamans can boast of several natural phenomenon that are a treat to every human being, whether a traveler or not.
These isolated group of islands have many things that are available ONLY IN ANDAMANS!
I have compiled my top 10 To-Do Things in Andamans in my ebook that you all can download for free, here is a list of all the MUST-DO things in Andamans. This list contains the suggestions that the ebook has and also a little more.
1. Sea Walking
Recently, sea walking has been introduced at North Bay Island. One does not need to know swimming to experience sea walking. North Bay island is about 30 mins. boat ride away from Port Blair and is a beautiful island in itself.
At North Bay, you can experience Sea walking, Jet Skii, Glass Bottom Boat ride to see corals and other water sports like speed boat etc.
Call Know Andamans at 91-9531920910 for booking a slot for sea walking.
2. Scuba Diving

Earlier, Scuba Diving was available only at Havelock Island but now Dive India has extended their service to Neil Island as well.
There are bounty of scuba divers available who are well trained and equipped to take you diving to the corals under the sea. It is definitely a MUST HAVE experience in Andamans as these islands have some of the most beautiful corals in their territory.
|Limestone Caves at Baratang|
The kind of caves you see on Discovery channel or NatGeo would seem like nothing when you visit Alfred Caves in Diglipur.
The caves are located at a trekking distance of about 40 mins from Ram nagar. So, any of you owho enjoys trekking and would love to explore trekking in forests, should head here. The caves are very famous for swiftlet nests. This is again something that is not possible to experience anywhere else.
Limestone caves in Baratang are relatively much easier to access as almost half of the distance is covered by traveling in a boat through a creek. And this boat ride has its own joy with mangrove trees on both the sides and calm water splashes on you once in a while!
4. Mud Volcanoes, Diglipur
|Mud Volcano at Diglipur|
Watching a live, active mud volcano today is certainly one of the most fascinating sights. In entire India, active volcanos exist only in A&N Islands – Barren Islands and Diglipur.
There is a series of small volcanos that have been erupting mud for quite a few years now! So much so that you can see a drainage of the mud that has made its own path down the valley. Must visit for everyone.
5. Island Hopping

What fun would it be to visit Andamans without Island hopping? On reaching Port Blair, one can go to various islands and can ferry from one island to another.
Port Blair has a frequent ferry connection with nearby islands like Ross Island, North Bay Island, Viper Island, Jolly Buoy Island, Havelock Island and Neil Island.
6. Visit Isolated, Un-inhabited Islands
It was a little difficult for me to mention this on the list here as not many un-inhabited islands are open for tourists, but nevertheless some are. You may visit Guitar Island, Stewart Island, Long Island (it is inhabited) Jolly Buoy, Ross and Ross and Smith Islands.
These islands offer the nature at its best and in the purest form. Nothing can beat the idea of spending few hours of solace in solitude amidst the calm beaches.
7. Sea Food
Some of food joints in Andamans offer the fresh(est) sea food. So, any sea food lover must indulge in the treat.
8. Visit Cellular Jail and Ross Island

Cellular jail and Ross Islands are not to be missed if you are history lovers. Both the places offer great insights into the history of pre-independence era of the islands.
The light and sound show of the jail is a must see.
