The Andamans are popular for the green-blue waters, pure beauty, along with the mental peace it provides to the travellers.

Do I need a visa or Restricted Area Permit to enter the Andamans?

Answered by Resmi

If you are an Indian passport holder, then you do not need a permit to visit and stay in the populated areas of the Andamans. However, if you are a foreign national, then you would need a Restricted Area Permit (RAP) over and above an Indian visa to enter the islands. You will be required to obtain the Indian visa in your country of residence prior to your arrival in India. One can easily obtain the Restricted Area Permit (RAP) on arrival in Port Blair. It is free of cost and is available to all foreign nationals. The procedure doesn’t take long. You will not be allowed to enter the Andaman Islands if your visa has a stamp that reads “Not valid for restricted areas” (or similar) as the island is a restricted zone. Please contact the issuing embassy if your visa carries this stamp. You will be required to get your visa re-issued. Foreigners travelling to Port Blair are issued a 30-day permit. This permit can be extended by another fifteen days closer to the time of expiry (around three days ahead). This procedure can be done only at the immigration office in Port Blair. All you have to do is show a confirmed return ticket for the journey within the next fifteen days for obtaining the extension. There is a possibility that you may not get this extension in a few hours. In this case, you will be required to stay overnight in Port Blair for getting the extension.

What is the food like in the Andamans?

Answered by Goldin

The Andaman Islands is popular for its authentic seafood owing to the staple food of Bengali settlers, who arrived here. All restaurants serve crabs, shrimp, lobster and fish. However, seafood is not cheap here as demand is more than supply. Also, the cost of seafood is not that sky high but it is not cheap either. North Indian, South Indian, Vegetarian, Continental, and Chinese dishes are available easily here. And if you order continental food, then expect it with the Indian twist. The Andaman Islands is known as a foodie paradise. It serves a wide range of mouth-watering cuisines especially seafood. Offering varieties of delicacies at your service, there are a number of sea-facing food joints across the island. Even if you are a vegetarian, you will have a lot to choose from in restaurants. Nemo Café, Waves, and Pink Fly should be in your itinerary if you are looking to chill with live music by the seashore.

What is the currency of the Andaman Islands?

Answered by Divya

The Indian Rupee (INR) is the currency of India. You can exchange major currencies only in Port Blair here. It is recommended that you go through authorized money changers or official banks. Please note that the rates of exchanging foreign currency in the Andamans will not be as good as in mainland India.

How is the climate and weather in the Andaman Islands?

Answered by Resmi

Like other parts of the Andaman Sea, Andamans also enjoy a tropical climate all around the year. The average minimum temperature is around 23°C and it rarely goes much above 30°C. The humidity level is quite high at about 70% to 90%. However, it is still quite pleasant as a gentle breeze blows most of the time. Towards the end of May before the monsoon season, June and July, some rainfall can be expected. Some rainfall is there through to November. This has a natural charm of its own as it keeps the island lush and green. The main tourist season begins in October every year. The southwest monsoon showers are over by September. There is a mix of rain and sun at this time. The island is at its most lively in October and November. It is lush and gorgeous. The farmland has a standing paddy crop. The forest is extremely green and the island is the most vibrant after shrugging off the shackles of the monsoon season. Nature is at its best here during these two months owing to intermittent showers. Andamans is fresh and green and the weather remains lovely. As the Southwest winds have blown away, the waters off the Bay turn calm and flat. As the Northeast winds blow briefly through the island, there may be rainfall in end November or early December. In December and January, the weather is usually quite pleasant. Daytime temperatures are ideal. It is sunny and pleasing. Nighttime temperatures are cool. In the evenings, you may need a light jacket or full sleeve shirt. The weather in February and March is very much settled. It slowly turns warmer. The sky and the sea are at their bluest and clearest at this time. It is summer season in April and it continues till the first half of May. The daytime temperatures reaches 36 centigrade but it is in the shade. From the second half of May till June and July, the Southwest Monsoon can be witnessed. It eases off after August/September. Paddy farmers yield their first harvest then.

How do I reach the Andaman and Nicobar Islands?

Answered by Goldin

Residents of India or Indian nationals can simply fly to Port Blair, the capital city of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, via Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, or Mumbai. There is direct connectivity of daily flights. Foreign nationals will be first required to fly into mainland India. Chennai and Kolkata would be the best points of entry as from here, you can reach Port Blair via a direct flight. From Chennai, Kolkata, and Visakhapatnam, ships to Port Blair also ply on fixed schedules. However, tickets have to be bought well in advance and the journey is of three days which can be quite monotonous as the ships are not luxurious at all and have minimal facilities.

What kinds of accommodations are available in the Andaman Islands?

Answered by Resmi

Andaman Island is the perfect destination for those who love nature and adventure. There are a number of places to see here that are sure to take your breath away. However, it is also very important that you enjoy your stay here as well. Some people prefer a beachfront resort property while others want to stay in a hotel located in the main market. Requirements of all kinds of guests can be easily fulfilled in the Andamans as it has grand and lavish beachfront properties as well as budget hotels across all the tourist destinations. If you want to stay at a beachfront resort, then we would highly recommend Havelock Island Beach Resort as it is well-equipped with all the modern amenities and so much more! Its location is excellent as well. You can spend quality time at its private beach.

What are the best things to do in the Andaman Islands?

Answered by Goldin

What should you do while vacationing in the Andamans totally depends on your interest areas. Most people spend a day or two in Port Blair, the capital town, visiting nearby tourist attractions, and after that head to Swaraj Dweep for gorgeous beaches and exciting water sports. If you just want to relax and spend quality time in nature’s lap, then you should consider proceeding straight to Havelock Island. If you are more of an explorer, then you have the option of visiting other islands such as Rangat, Baratang, Diglipur, Neil Island, Mayabunder, Long Island, etc. However, you should know that these islands have much more basic facilities than those in Port Blair or Havelock Island. While holidaying in the Andaman Islands, there will never be a dull moment as you have the choice of being a total beach bum just chilling and enjoying the serenity or explore various islands over many days.

Does the island has required medical facilities?

Answered by Resmi

All across the island, efficient health care facilities are available. In case of an emergency, prompt aids are available with speed boats to your rescue. Doctor’s assistance, medication from the pharmacy, hospitalisations, operation, and nursing are included in the healthcare facilities.

Which language do the locals speak in the Andamans?

Answered by Goldin

Andaman and Nicobar Islands are home to a lot of tribes as well as a vast population. It is known for its rich topography and culture. The total population was 379,944 as per the census of 2011. Hindi and English are the official languages of the island. Bengali is the most spoken and dominant language. Other spoken languages include Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Nicobarese.

What time zone do the Andaman Islands lie in?

Answered by Divya

The whole of India falls under the same time zone. The local time is GMT + 5½ hours throughout the country year round. Life in the Andaman Islands begins a little earlier in the day as it is geographically closer to Thailand than India.

Is there a postal service?

Answered by Goldin

Generally speaking, Indian postal services have a good reputation for posting domestically as well as internationally. But the service is not that reliable in the Andamans. In the past, there have been cases of parcels and letters not reaching their destination. Thus, you should use postal services on mainland India rather than on the island.

Can I rent a bicycle, motorbike or a car in Port Blair and Havelock Island?

Answered by Resmi

When in Port Blair or Havelock Island, you can rent a bicycle from the market area. However, it is not possible on other islands. Charges are on a per day basis. The rented bicycles are very basic. You will not get high quality mountain terrain bikes here on which you can do stunts. A motorbike can also be easily rented for the duration of your stay. There are options of non-geared and the geared motorbikes and scooters. The shops renting these bikes will ask for your driving license before you take anything on rent. Charges vary and are on per day basis. You have to bear the fuel charges on your own. You can be stopped by police personnel for a sudden check. So keep your license with you at all times. Wearing a helmet is mandatory and you will get it with the bike. You will be fined if police stops you and you are not wearing your helmet. Self driven cars are not available for rental but taxi service can be availed for short distances and day hire.

Are there sand flies in the Andaman Islands?

Answered by Resmi

There are some Andaman beaches that have sand flies. So you have to carry a strong insect repellent in your beach bag. Avoid being on a beach at dusk as sand flies usually come out at this time. If you get bitten by sand flies, then attend to it immediately to make sure that you do not get infected. Do not scratch and keep the affected area dry.

Do I need to take any health precautions?

Answered by Divya

Due to the remoteness and low population in the Andamans, health services are limited. However, there are good medical facilities at GB Pant Hospital, which is located in Port Blair, the capital town. India is a malarial risk area. However, there are very few known cases in Havelock Island. Consult your doctor and decided whether you want to reduce this risk further by taking anti malaria, which may have some side effects. You should also check the status of your vaccinations and decided which ones do you need for your travels. Follow normal sensible precautions with food and you will be out of trouble. Drink a lot of bottled drinking water for prevention of dehydration. Do not drink tap water. Wear light and loose clothing made from natural fibres. In this humidity, heat rash and fungal infections for tourists are not unusual. In case you get injured, consult a doctor and/or take antibiotics and apply an antiseptic cream regularly. It is easy for an infection to set in as the humidity level is high.
