TRAVEL PLACES IN ANDAMAN ISLANDS – ANDAMAN AND NICOBAR TRAVEL GUIDE

Amazing Andaman Tour

The holiday to Andaman & Nicobar Islands is a once in a lifetime experience. Andaman & Nicobar is full of amazing nature beauty and stunning marine life. I am eager to share my experience and thoughts about this lovely place. My experience may help others plan a better trip and help them to change their view to look at Andaman island as “Kaala-Pani “

Few details about Andaman Islands:

Andaman Islands are a group of islands in the Bay of Bengal and a Union Territory of India. There are total 572 islands but Inhabited Islands are 38. The name of the island has always been ‘Andaman’ and might represent Handuman, the Malay form of Hanuman. Capital of Andaman Island is Port Blair.

The history of the British in the Andaman and Nicobar islands began in 1788. British Government thought of establishing a penal settlement here. In March 1858, the first penal settlement was established, with 200 prisoners, mostly rebels from the Indian Army. Initially the convicts were kept in a jail at Viper Island. The foundation of the infamous Cellular Jail was laid in 1896. The building was completed in 1906. Place soon known as Kaala Pani because of Cellular Jail. This place becomes a favorite tourist place after 2000. Veer Savarkar International airport is the only airport in Andaman.

Our journey begins on 14th February 2012 with a lot of enthusiasm

Day 0 (14th– 15thFeb 2012): Pune – Chennai – Port Blair Flight

 

We started from Pune to Chennai by Spice Jet Airways at 11 PM. My friends (Anannya, Aditya and Vrishali) dropped us on airport. It was the first flight journey for my wife, Renuka and she was very thrilled. After the 1 hour journey to Chennai, we stayed on the airport about 3-4 hours and then boarded an Indian Airlines flight for Port Blair at 6 AM. Flight duration was 2 hrs. After nice breakfast and movie we witnessed some beautiful scattered islands. This view is never to be missed. Simply amazing.

 

Day 1 (15th Feb 2012): In Port Blair

 

Andaman Tour – We were welcomed by my friend from Andaman, Nawaz Hashmi, with a lovely flower bouquet. We moved to our hotel, “Megapode Resort”, also known as Megapode Nest Resort. A royal luxury Bamboo cottage was booked for us. Open Sea view from your balcony makes you feel fresh. After taking rest for a while, we planned to visit Corbyn’s Cove Beach. There is nothing special as such on this beach but the clam water and lovely view of the beach made us spend about an hour on beach.  Road to this beach is very beautiful. You can see Ross island on the way.

After visiting the beach, we decided to visit the cellular Jail. Wow….. What a place to visit in Andaman. Best way to see the past chapter of our Indian history. We should know the value of our freedom. You need at least 2-3 hours to see the entire jail. It was a very proud movement for me.

During my jail visit I saw some people making fun of this place. People were taking picture in cell or in Phasi Ghar. There were acting as they are prisoner in this jail. I think we should respect this place. Quote by Ganesh Savarkar about jail is telling you everything. “यह तीर्थ महारथियों का है, मात कहो इसे काला पानी, तुम सुनो, यहाँ की धरती के कण – कण से गाथा बलिदानी”.

  • Entry fee: INR 20/-
  • Camera fee: INR 25/- and Video camera fee: INR 100/-

Day 2 (16th Feb 2012): Ross Island and Chidiya Tapu

 We woke up early and were surprised by the weather condition. Average sun rise timing in Andaman is 5 AM and sunset by 5 PM. 

     After a delicious breakfast from resort, we went to the Ross Island jetty. It’s a 10 min boat ride from jetty to the Island. This Island is the erstwhile capital of Port Blair during the British regime, and it presently houses the ruins of old buildings. It is very well maintained by navy and local people. There are ruins building on islands and very interesting shapes made by tree + roots + ruin building. It’s Heaven for photographer and best to click black and white photos. To see complete island you need to walk a lot so better to carry water and some snacks. There is small beach which is completely destroyed by 2004 tsunami and you can see that. We spent nearly 3 hours on island and took the same boat to return on jetty.

We had our lunch at Annapurna restaurant which is best vegetarian restaurant in Port Blair. Punjabi food cost us around INR 400/- along with ice cream. We roamed in port Blair by our hired car. We found Port Blair city very clean and all the people here follow proper rules. In the evening we decided to take a road trip by bike so we asked our friend Hashmi for bike. He gave his passion bike w/o any cost. Location was Chidiya Tapu.

It is Around 25 – 28km from Port Blair city. The road cuts through a dense forest and sometimes along a classic seaside. This place is famous for a variety of birds but you cannot expect to see them from the beach. You need to explore forest area. Forest is quite dense so it’s better to go inside with a local guide or a local person. Beach is very beautiful and calm and it tempts you for swimming. Do not miss classic view of sunset and keep your camera ready to capture it.

After memorable sun set we came back to our resort for lovely candle light dinner which was a must for our honeymoon.

  • Lunch at Annapurna restaurant: INR 400 /- for both (Panjabi Food + Ice cream)
  • Auto (Megapode Resort to PB Market): INR 25/-

Day 3 (17th Feb 2012): Jolly Bouy Island

Early morning we left the resort without breakfast as we wanted to see an aerial view of the Veer Savarkar Airport. Our driver Basir took us on a hilltop. From there, we were able to see the complete airport. We spent half an hour and saw the landing of an air India flight and the takeoff of kingfisher airline.

Our today’s destination was Jolly Bouy Island. For this island you have to take a boat ride from Wandoor. Wandoor jetty is 30km away from Port Blair city. We got tickets for 9 AM boat. Boat’s name was Silver wind. By the same boat, you have to come back to Wandoor. That boat waits for us nearby the island for around 3 hrs. Jolly Bouy Island is in the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park and has a nice beach to offer a spectacular breath taking underwater view of corals and marine life. This is the best beach I ever visited in India for corals and marine life.

They offer you free snorkeling OR bottom glass boat ride. If you like it then you can pay extra INR for a longer ride. We did free snorkeling which was just a trailer of marine life. We liked it so much, that we paid extra INR per person and took a 20-25 min extra ride. This experience was simply amazing. I could see the underwater coral, fishes moving around my legs, different types of fishes like crown, large parrot, zebra, star fish, sea angelfish etc. and also 2 octopuses. My wife and I were so happy that we did snorkeling twice.

Those who are scared of snorkeling then enjoy glass boat ride. By the way, for snorkeling, swimming is not a pre-requisite. But if you can swim, snorkeling guide takes you for long ride. We enjoyed our long and deep snorkeling rides.
Food stalls are not available on this island as it comes under marine national park. It is plastic free zone. Do not miss this island.

  • Boat Ride: INR 550/- per head (it includes 1 snorkeling or glass boat ride)

  • Water bottle: INR 5/- Rent and INR 100/- deposit (they provide non plastic water bags)

After spending a long time here, we were tired, tanned and dehydrated. We were back to Port Blair for lunch, and then rested till it was dark outside. In the evening we visited at anthropology museum. Best way to know the past and current state of tribal communities.
We did some local market shopping in port Blair. There is “Sagarika” shop where you can buy shell items, Jute based items and Handicraft. This is a government owned shop. There are other local shops also nearby Sagarika. I found these shops reasonable as compare to Sagarika. After lot of shopping (thanks to my wife), we came back to hotel for Dinner. Now our luggage count become 5 from 4 due to shopping. We had to sleep early as next morning we had ship for Havelock Island.

Day 4 (18th Feb 2012): Havelock Island + Radhanagar Beach

We checked out early morning from the resort and kept the extra luggage in the resort’s luggage room. The Hotel was very near to Phoenix Bay Jetty (port). Our ship named Bambooka was waiting for us. It was our first ship journey. Once the ship got sailing in the sea, we went on the deck. View of open sea was amazing. After an hour, my wife requested a crew member to show us the ship’s cabin. We got to know that the ship’s captain is from Pune/Nasik. He was so happy to meet us, that we spend entire journey in the captain’s cabin. We told us how to sail the ship. We had snacks with the entire crew members. Captain gave us his contact no and invited us to meet him when he will be back on leave in Pune.  After a royal 2 hour journey, we reached Havelock.

  • Ship ticket: INR 250/- per person (Port Blair to Havelock island only. 38km from port Blair Jetty)
  • SeaShell Resort Havelock: INR 4500/- per room per night (Andaman Chalet, Half board plan)

 

 

Havelock Island is very small in size with a very less population. Havelock Island provides idyllic resort in the lap of virgin beach and an unpolluted environment. Our driver was waiting for us on jetty. We moved into the sea shell resort which is approx. 2-3 km away from the jetty. Sea shell resort’s property is completely surrounded by tall coconut trees and green garden. Night bar is in the middle of the premise. Our private cottage was close to the beach. Beach is not at all good for swimming but you can relax on the wooden benches. We took rest in resort till 2.30 PM and then we started for a very romantic and famous Radhanagar Beach.

 

Radhanagar Beach is one of the largest beaches in India; it is lonely, very clean, silver sand and breathtakingly beautiful. It has been ranked Asia’s 2nd most beautiful beach. Local people say soon it will be on rank 1. It was very difficult to stop ourselves from entering in the blue water. We did photography sessions. A sweet European lady came to us and took our photos (we didn’t request her to click, but she felt like taking our snaps. Thanks if you are reading this blog!).  After spending a long time, we witnessed very romantic sunset from the beach. A perfect place for Honeymoon!!!

As we were very tried, we preferred to stay in the resort.

  • Coconut water: INR 35/- (Due to famous spot everything is costly outside Radhanagar beach)
  • Mineral water: INR 20 to 25/- per lit.
    All most all items on Havelock are bit costly. Reason is simple as it is a small island away from Port Blair.

Day 5 (19th Feb 2012): our first Scuba Diving + Fishing game

  • Mineral water: INR 20 to 25/- per lit.
    All most all items on Havelock are bit costly. Reason is simple as it is a small island away from Port Blair.

 

Day 5 (19th Feb 2012): our first Scuba Diving + Fishing game

We were waiting for this day since a long time. At 7.30 in the morning we left our resort and reached at Go Dive India center. It is paddy certified diving school. We took 1 day basic diving course. After wearing the wet suit, we left the diving area by boat for our training section. We both were too excited about our 1st dive. Instructor explained us how to dive and the does and don’ts. We had training for worst condition under water. As we were getting trained in the 6 – 8 ft. water, we were eager to go for our Dive. A Photographer which we hired to dive was covering us to take some good pictures. After 25 -30 min training we decided to enter in the fabulous underwater world.

When I entered in the deep blue sea, my heartbeat increased their pace. It took us a few minutes to relax in the water. Me, Renuka and our Instructor were trying to focus on tasks which he explained us. After few min we were mentally ready to go deep. Scuba gives us the chance to unveil the mysteries and the wonders of the environment which covers the majority of our planet. We really tried hard not to panic as we and our instructor went deeper and deeper underwater. It was really a great experience, seeing the beauty of sea wildlife because of the presence of many varieties of reef fish, corals. It was totally a different world. It is so quiet. We were inside the water for about an hour. When we came back I got to the real meaning of the shayari from Movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

पिघले नीलम सा बहता ये समां,नीली नीली सी खामोशियाँ ,
न कहीं है ज़मीन न कहीं आसमान,सरसराती हुई टहनियां पट्टियां,
कह रहीं है बस एक तुम हो यहाँ, बस मैं हूँ ,
मेरी सांसें हैं और मेरी धडकनें,ऐसी गहराइयाँ, ऐसी तन्हैयाँ,
और मैं … सिर्फ मैं.
अपने होने पर मुझको यकीन आ गया !

Our day, till this point was mind-blowing and we decide to enjoy on full throttle. We booked a private boat for fishing game.  Thanks to my friend Hashmi again, who arranged this from port Blair on a single call. Me, Renuka and 3 local Fisherman went in for shipping. We learned their local method. 3 hours on the boat, very quiet and away from land…..lovely experience. We were able to catch 7 medium – large size fish. I was the winner as I got 3 fish among 7. Sunset from our private boat was just a perfect.  After sun set it was dark and return journey was full of thrill.

 

In dinner, I ate 2 fish (kokkari fish and kushari fish: Local names) which was served by sea shell resort chef. We celebrated our first dive with some drinks and fish. Today we tried few things first time in our life like scuba diving, Fishing game and drinks. It was a perfect day from our Honeymoon.

We decided that we will just roam around and explore the whole island. We rented an Activa bike to roam on island. We read about Kaala Pathar beach from internet so we decide to visit that place. It was a long drive and road quality is not at all good. Road was very lonely and hardly we see a single bike or person on the way. We could see the sea along the road. Finally we reached on beach. It is a small beach but a very beautiful and an untouched one. There were hardly 3 couples on this beach. It is very clean and has crystal clear water. Good place for couple’s photo session. Tripod is needed as you won’t get any one to take your snaps or you have to wait for someone to pass by. Luckily we had our tripod along with us. I don’t know why people coming to Havelock miss this place.

We returned to resort to check out from our resort and had our lunch again on B3 restaurant. At 3 PM we boarded in our ship Bambooka. After few min, a Vice Capt. came into the passenger compartment and took us to the cabin. Capt. Deshpande was aware that we were in the ship. (We told them about our return journey 2 days back). Other passenger were surprised that why were we taken out from compartment. But we were aware about real the reason. Ha ha ha… Again we got a royal treatment in the ship. After photo session with ship crew, we return to the Megapode Resort. Thanks Capt. Deshpande and his team for such a royal treatment. We are still in touch with each other and soon we are going to visit them in Pune.

This was our last evening in Port Blair so we went for shopping again for hour. Tonight Dinner was planned by my friend Hashmi in five-star fortune bay restaurant. That was a treat from my friend. We received a beautiful wedding gift from him. He made our honeymoon trip special by doing such a great arrangement in Andaman. We cannot forget this trip.

When we returned to our hotel, we were sad. Next morning we were supposed to leave such a beautiful place. That night we decided to celebrate our first wedding anniversary in Andaman again. We will really miss this place.
