I will always vouch for Andaman Islands, however I do not know how old are your parents to guide you in a better way. Whatever it is, this will be my suggestion for a family on trip to the Andaman Islands.

I am assuming your parents might be over 50+ years(sorry, if that’s not the case). This is what you can do during their Andaman trip

They can customize a package for around 5 days which includes both Port blair and havelock Island. In case they are frequent travelers then I will recommend you to add Neil Island as well. Now, by doing this we are also making sure that the trip doesn’t get so hectic that your parents starts feeling tired during their vacation. Here is my itinerary suggestion, which might help and your parents experience Andaman islands in a much better way

Day 1 – They arrive in Andaman, rest and evening take a trip to Cellular Jail Light and Sound Show. They can even combine this with Corbyns Cove Beach and Cellular Jail . Well, this all depends upon their arrival time in Andaman. Since Cellular Jail is an historic destination, they will surely like it.

Day 02 – Well, this day they can plan a trip to Ross Island and North Bay Island Trip . Again these destinations are very close in proximity in Port Blair, thus reducing the travel time. Ross Island was the first administrative settlement of britishers and North bay island is a nice coral island to spend time with your loved ones. You can do snorkeling or scuba diving here as well. Sea walk is another great attraction here.

Day 03 – Now today after 2 days in Port Blair I will recommend them to move to Havelock island. I believe you will have heard a lot about this destination as this is extremely famous. Take a ferry to havelock island, you can also avail a cruise or a government ferry to reach havelock island. Take the morning ferry to Havelock from Port Blair.  Check in your hotel, rest and enjoy the white sand beaches. Suggest you to take a beach resort only. Evening you can go for a visit to the most famous beaches in India, Radhanagar beach.

Day 04 – Today, based on the comfort of the elderly travelers they can either go on a Snorkeling Trip to Elephant Beach or can only avail a boat ride to elephant beach. If they just want to relax then they can keep the entire day at leisure and plan to have lunch in nearby resorts. Sea food in Andaman island is awesome and one should not miss out on that.

Day 05 – Today you will be departing from Havelock Island to Port Blair so make a note that you will have to check out your hotel in Havelock Island before moving forward. If your parents doesn’t want to do any activity in Havelock island on this day then I will recommend them to move to Port Blair by the early morning ferry from havelock. Usually, the check out timing is around 9:00 AM and the evening ferry is around 4:00 PM. Sometimes, travelers do not prefer to stay outside after checking out of the hotel/resort.  After reaching Port blair you can go for Chidiatapu Sunset Trip, which is said to offer the best sunset view in the Andaman Islands.

Day 06 – Departure from Andaman Islands.

Trip to Andaman Islands   is a something that people cautiously plan and it should rightly be done so as the island has a lot to offer, however if travelers have a superficial approach towards traveling to Andaman then they can ruin their vacation. Its a destination to think about before moving forward like Leh-Ladakh, Kashmir . You need to know what are the most important thing to make your trip memorable in Andaman.
