Solo Trip to Andaman and Nicobar Islands

 
Imagine finding yourself in the ocean mist amidst seashells and salty air. Feels ethereal, doesn’t it? A vacation on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands promises you this ravishing ocean experience! So if you are looking for a getaway to unwind yourself amidst the cool breeze, an Andaman and Nicobar solo trip would be the right choice for you. Let’s look at a few island attractions that can enhance your solo travel.

Andaman Nicobar Islands

Port Blair

 
Port Blair is the doorway to your Andaman and Nicobar Islands solo trip! Being the capital city, Port Blair is naturally crowded but not messy enough to dampen your wandering enthusiasm. The city bears historical heritage sites that cannot be missed. The cellular jail, also known as Kaala Paani, is one such spot identified as the prison used by the British to incarcerate politicians and others involved in the freedom struggle. Relics of the Second World War can also be seen in the form of Japanese bunkers situated on the way to Ross Island and Corbyn Cove Beach. The main bazaar is definitely not a place to miss if you wish to experiment with varied kinds of tasty food.

Havelock Island


If you are a beach lover, this place could possibly become one of your favourites. Radhanagar Beach, arguably one of the best in Asia, is 11km from the Havelock dock. The beach greets you with white sand and clear waters that stretch as far as the eyes can see. If you can take a boat, go to Elephant Beach. The name is a bit misleading since you will not find elephants but will definitely be greeted with blue waters and forest greens! You can engage yourself in activities like kayaking and scuba diving if you please. Kalapathar Beach and Vijayanagar Beach are spots that can also be visited at Havelock Island. It is the go-to place for solo backpackers looking for fun water sports and bright sands for company.

Neil Island


If you are craving tranquillity and looking to explore the silent grace of the aquatic life, you couldn’t be anywhere better than Neil Island. Other than Bharatpur Beach, known for its water sports, and Laxmanpur Beach for its magical sunset view, the one thing that would make this island all the more remarkable in your Andaman and Nicobar solo trip itinerary is the glass boat tour! You guessed it right; the bottom of the boat is made of glass allowing you to watch fishes swimming in the depths. Your Andaman solo travel itinerary should include a trip to Howrah Bridge - an iconic landmark constituting a rock naturally shaped like a bridge.

Diglipur

 
This often unnoticed, yet large, island in the northern part of Andaman islands is the perfect destination for nature lovers. It is probably one of the less-visited places in Andaman. Due to its tranquil surroundings laced with breathtaking panoramas, it should be a sure slot in your Andaman solo trip. Diglipur can be reached by road or ferry from Port Blair. It is the right option for solo backpackers who love adventure. Climbing Saddle Peak and finally setting eyes on one of the most gorgeous views of nature is quite an enchanting experience. Although the trek is within the forest, you need not worry about wild animals. It is a safe and delightful activity!

Bharatang Island

 
With all its natural wonders, Bharatang Island is another place worth visiting in your Andaman Nicobar solo trip. It stands out from the rest of the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Its major attraction is the limestone cave. More or less a trekking expedition, going to these caves can be exhilarating. If you are into bird watching, do not forget to visit Parrot Island. Thousands of parrots flying back to their nests at sunset would be a jaw-dropping experience, exclusive to the island. The Mud Volcano can be an interesting site for those of you who have a passion for science. If you want to relax and enjoy swimming all by yourself, note that Baludera Beach on this island is usually not crowded and is an ideal place to enjoy swimming in privacy.
