Book a resort that has ‘romance’ written all over it
The first and most essential task is to book your stay in a nice resort which is romantic in all senses… exotic location, swimming pool, tasty food, an in-house bar. Don’t forget cosy rooms, classy interiors, and your own cocoon of comfort and privacy.
Finding such properties won’t be a problem in Andaman. There are plenty of resorts and hotels that have ‘romance’ written all over them. For instance, Sea Shell in Port Blair offers splendid views of the sea. It also houses the Amaya – one of the best rooftop resto-bar in Port Blair.
Tip: Don’t be shy to let people know that you are in Andaman for your honeymoon. Some resorts and hotels have special discounts, free room upgrades, and other offers which you can enjoy.
Share a romantic breakfast or lunch on a beach
Why beach? After the frenzy of your big fat Indian wedding, stillness is what you are looking for, a haven where it feels like you are the last two people on the planet and you forget the rest, then don’t miss out on the chance of a cosy meal and moments shared on the beach. Besides, think about it, even though a romantic lunch by the beach is a cliche idea, it is romantic and the least likely to go wrong.
Secondly, Andaman is the hub of the prettiest beaches in India. What else can be better and more thoughtful than a romantic breakfast or lunch by the beach?
Check with your tour operator or get in touch with the resort you are staying in. They will either help you with the required information or will arrange the experience for you.
Catch sunrise and sunset together
Sometimes sitting by the beach with your partner and experiencing the most beautiful sunrise and sunset together is all you need. It’s simple, less expensive, thoughtful and yet so awe-inspiring.
Once you are in Port Blair, you can rent a scooter and drive to Chidiya Tapu during the evening. Watching the sun dipping down the horizon is breathtaking.
Plan your visit smartly as the sun sets down by 5:30 PM in Andaman and Chidiya Tapu is approximately 30 km from Port Blair.
On a different day, you can visit the Radhanagar beach or the Sitapur Beach on Neil Island to catch a beautiful sunrise with your partner.
Hit the road and explore the local market
Hate it or like it, shopping is an instant happiness therapy for men and women alike. Besides, exploring the local market and shopping for souvenirs during your honeymoon is a must-do pleasure activity.
Take a walk down to the Aberdeen market and explore the local offerings. Apart from being the local hub of pocket-friendly options to eat, stay and shop; the market is colourful and known for its chatty market culture.
Get adventurous throughout the day
Andaman is the hub of adventure sports. Be it water sports, trekking to the mountains, or bird watching, Andaman has a little something of everything. You can dedicate an entire day or two to explore your adventurous side with your partner.
There are a plethora of activities in Andaman for tourists, such as scuba diving, snorkelling, jet-skiing, trekking to Munda Pahad, coral safari, glass boat ride and much more. Additionally, there’s a huge list of things to do in Andaman that you can find on our website.
Plan before you board the flight to Andaman. Advance bookings for scuba diving, snorkelling and other paid activities ensures zero hassles for you once you reach there.
Arrange a romantic evening on Bella Bay Cruise
A romantic dinner on the mesmerising Bella Bay Cruise is all you need to complete your honeymoon. Imagine yourself on a cruise, enjoying delicious food with DJs playing foot-tapping music and panoramic views of the South Andamans – the area around Ross and North Bay Islands. All whilst you are dining with your partner on TSG Bella Bay Cruise.

Inter-island cruising within Andaman with your partner is a definite must. A ride with Makruzz to either of the four popular islands, Havelock, Neil, and Baratang from Port Blair gives you a taste of comfort and luxury at its best.
Along with that, a ride with Makruzz comes with captivating panoramic views of the Andaman sea, creating a romantic vibe across the ferry.

Go for an evening walk by the shore
