The Andaman Islands, located off the coast of India in the Bay of Bengal, are an archipelago comprising 572 islands. These islands offer travellers a chance to explore pristine beaches, dense forests and some of the world's most active volcanoes. The islands also boast ancient Hindu temples that date back over 1000 years.
The nearest country to the island group is Thailand. They are especially known for their beaches, tropical rainforest climate and diving locations. The motto for many travellers is 'get away from it all' at the Andaman Islands, but there is plenty of culture and history to be explored too.
The best time to visit the islands would be between November till April where it's drier and not so humid - many tourists take part in water sports during this time. Another option is to travel during Indian holidays when there are fewer people around. The warmest months are March through May (28-32°C).
You could also choose mid-December until April which is when you'll have a better chance to see migratory species visiting in large numbers. Of course, if you're into whale watching then that will take place between December and April, where up to 20 species can be seen including sperm whales.
