On an average if any person is given an option to choose between hills or beaches most of the people would definitely choose the beach. It's true that mountains give some kind of peace and calmness but when it comes to beaches no one can deny the fun and excitement they have for that.

I took the morning flight from Delhi and reached Port Blair somewhere around 1:30pm. Though most of the flights to Port Blair from these landlocked states are in the morning but there to are some flights in the afternoon as well, however i would recommend you to take the morning fight which are cheap as well as will give you enough time to visit the city.

I had an accommodation in the J Hotel which is located in the heart of the city. The only plus point about this hotel is its closeness to the main market otherwise the quality of service here is not upto the mark.

After an hour of rest i went to the Cellular Jail. Okay! now if you guys want to see the inside of the jail as well than i might suggest to visit this place a little more early..... around 3:00 pm and for the light and sound show the ticket must in any case be bought a little early or you can book it from your hotel, as it is convenient to do so otherwise at the ticket counter you might end up in a chaos.

For good food i would recommend Anapurna Restaurent which is near the clock tower, it is a nice decent place that will serve you all kinds of dishes.

Wandur Island

My second day was a trip to the Wandur Island and the ticket of this place should also be bought earlier, as it is quite difficult to get the ticket day prior or on the day of the visit, what i would suggest is to buy the ticket two days prior to the visit.

Now the island is small one but quite beautiful the main reason for which the people visit the island is the glass bottom boat ride and snorkeling that takes place there, glass bottom ride also has three different prices. Once you reach the island the guide on your boats would give you a demo ride of the glass bottom boat, then depending upon your liking you may choose from one of the three options which they give, with price ranging from rs 300-900 per person.

The island has many places for clicking the ideal "DP". The period of stay on the island is roughly between 2-3 hours which is sufficient.

On the third day i took a ferry to Havelock at around 8:30 am. I took the the Green Ocean on my way to Havelock, it is a private ferry and the seats fill up quite fast so if you are planning to go to Havelock you must book the ferry around two weeks prior to the trip.

Havelock is a lovely place with lots of beautiful beaches and for divers it has some amazing dive sites..... really amazing!!! Since i had gone for my Advance Open Water Diver course over there i was quiet busy all day.

Those of you who are water babies and have not done diving or any other water sport before, Havelock is the best place to do so, this place has nearly 30-35 dive centers, and every dive center provides a service of "Try Dive", which is basically a demo to the underwater world. You just pay the required amount, learn some basic skills and have a great experience.

To get some scenic beauty the best place would be the road leading to the Kalapathar Beach, it has some amazing views! I would recommend you to hire a bike(scooty) or a cycle because Havelock can be best enjoyed by these.

Havelock is a small place, everything you need to visit is within the range of 10-20 km. The most famous restaurant in Havelock is Anju Coco Restaurant , it is near the Shangrillas Hotel and is quiet crowded in the evening, the food over there tastes good but is a little expensive, another restaurant you would find is in the Dolphin Resort which is a government resort and the food there is cheap as well as will give you a home like feel. In the evening after dinner a walk i the resort is a good option

I could not visit more places in Andamans, but these are the two places that most people visit if they come to Andamans so i thought about sharing my experiences with you all, also if anyone has visited any other beautiful place in the Andamans please do share and let me know as well.

With a full convection i would say that Andaman is a must "go to Place", its beautiful and you would not regret.
