Most of the vacation packages include Port Blair, Havelock Island and Neil Island as a standard, because they are the best in Andaman. While some itineraries include North Bay and Ross Island for some water sports and history trip.

Folks visiting for more than 4 nights usually travel to other offbeat destinations like Baratang, Long Island and Rangat to add some outstation adventure to the travel.

You will have to choose among these destinations based on who you are traveling with,and what age group everyone belongs to.

Top destinations in Andaman for Kids:

Kids like being around beautiful places, love to swim, explore new things, and enjoy a bit water sports and therefore you should plan the trip accordingly.

The best places to visit with your kids are:

  • Havelock Island
  • Port Blair
  • North Bay
  • Neil Island

When combined together on a trip, these four islands are perfect for them in every sense. The Havelock Island includes great places like Radhanagar Beach, which offers a splendid view of the ocean and swimming here is allowed, so your kids can have hours of fun in the water. Moreover, there are life guards available here and there is no warning for crocodiles so you can be sure of their safety.

Port Blair offers a diverse collection of places like Carbyn’s cove beach and Wandoor beach, which is adored by kids for its wide seashore where they can run freely,enjoy ice creams and enjoy water sports casually.

North Bay has a diverse collection of water sports that is much higher than any other island in Andaman and is perfect for kids. There are a lot of vendors available there and the trip to the island itself on a boat is wonderful. If you have kids in your family, this destination is highly recommended.

Neil Island has great and completely secluded beaches that adds a bit of mystery to your vacation, the island is small but has some of the best beaches in the islands,like Laxmanpur Beach which is surrounded by tropical trees and is large enough for kids to explore till their heart’s content.

Places to avoid:
  • Baratang
  • Hut Bay
  • Long Island
  • Mayabunder

These places should be avoided if you have a small child in your family because the trip can be at least 4-6 hours for specific destinations, or might require a trip with a boat that can be tricky with a kid.

Moreover, these are no public bathrooms available and you are not allowed to get down from the vehicle which can get uncomfortable really fast.

Planning a trip, if you have elders in your family:

Elders need to have a non-rushed, amazing vacation with great places and a bit of history,so you can plan a trip that doesn’t include tiring travels to offbeat destinations in North Andaman.

You’ll also have to choose places that don’t have to reached by trekking or long walks and select transportation that doesn’t involve extra walks and are comfortable during transfers.

The best places for elders to visit is the same as given above. Overall, it is best to keep the trip to south Andaman.

The best places to visit if you have elders in your family are, Havelock Island, Neil Island and Port Blair.

If they are interested in history, and would like to explore it, you can also add: Port Blair, Ross Island and Viper Island, which has some of the finest historical monuments and museums in the islands.

Museums at Port Blair:
  • Chatham Saw Mill
  • Samudrika Naval Marine Museum
  • Anthropological Museum
  • Fisheries Museum

Places which can be a bit tiring for elders:

  • Baratang
  • Rangat
  • Jolly Buoy
  • Red Skin Island
  • Mayabunder

These places are listed as tiring because they require offbeat trips to islands in the North Andaman, which requires 6 or more hours of travel in a cab, moreover, there are no places to stay near these destinations and there are no bathroom facilities during the journey.

For visiting Jolly Buoy, you will need special permissions and you will have to take a journey to Wandoor Beach from where you can board the boat. This is doable but the number of water sports here is less when compared to other destinations in the islands and the boat journey can be bumpy for elders.

The thing that makes it more complicated is that the journey takes you through the tribal reserve, where getting out of the vehicle is prohibited by the government.

If your kids, parents or grandparents love trips like these and the restrictions don’t bother them, it is worth visiting Baratang.

Best casual water sports for the whole family:

Enjoying water sports with your whole family is something that adds a lot of memorable moments to the vacation, surrounded by water from all sides, the Andaman Islands is one of the best places to enjoy it.

While there are a lot of water sports available in the islands, some of them has to be done individually and some of them can be done together with the whole family. We have listed all of them below:

Water sports that can be done together as a family:

All of these activities listed above can be enjoyed by everyone from kids to elders together, and makes for some of the best candid photos of the whole family having fun together. Making this an experience that you will remember for years to come.

The best thing about this is that, most of them, including Dolphin Glass Bottom Boat, Semi-Submarine, and Speed Boat rides, are perfectly safe for both kids and elders, and you can opt for those while on your tour.

Other famous water sports in Andaman:

Although, these waters have to be done individually, they too spice up your vacation, and add a bit of adventure to the trip.

Frequently Asked by Travelers:

How many days is enough for a family trip to Andaman?

Coming here on a 5 Nights and 6 Days trip is enough duration to visit the best destinations and more with your family. If you are tight on schedule, you should spend no less than 4 nights in Andaman on your trip to get the best experience and get a glimpse of this tropical paradise.

This is advised so because, any trip with less than 4 nights in Andaman, will let you visit 3 islands at most, and you will have to leave 1 or 2 destinations behind.

My kids are young, will I face problems while touring?

No, the are no specific problems that may arrive, bit make sure to tour the south Andaman, as trip to the north, can get a bit tiring for the kid.

You should also choose to add cruise transfers for inter-island travel instead of Govt. ferry because it is more comfortable, safer, less prone to cause sea-sickness and takes you there faster. As children are usually really prone to sea-sickness, the cruises are your best bet.

Moreover, you should always choose decent hotels that are quiet and cabs that have Air Conditioning, as the tropical heat and wind in Andaman combined with high humidity can be irritating to the kid.
