What is the best time to visit Andaman?

The best time to visit Andaman & Nicobar Islands is between October and March as the weather stays dry on most days and it's not too hot. The days are bright and quite pleasant for a great vacation. It's the perfect time for diving and water sports or just lazying around on the gorgeous beaches.

Monsoons (July to September) are not always recommended as the waves could be unpredictable and specific regions also receive heavy downpours. During the monsoon season or on days when it rains heavily, the ferry schedule gets disturbed with big delays and even cancellations. Water sports on beaches are also not available and if you're planning to dive or snorkel, visibility in the water diminishes during the rainy season.

Summer months (April-June) could be hot and it rains sometimes as well. However, Andaman being a tropical destination, the temperature doesn't go beyond 37 degrees on most days.

Andaman & Nicobar Islands in Monsoon (July - September )

Monsoons bring moderate rainfall most of the times, but the peak season could see heavy downpours. Tourism is not at its best during this season because the sea waves are unpredictable. Therefore, it is not advisable to visit the beaches or participate in water sports. The temperature ranges between 22°C and 36°C and the humidity is at its highest level. Although tourists do visit the islands during the season, especially in July and August, in case of heavy rainfall and unpredictable seas, water sports may not be an option.
