What to do in Little Andaman
Little Andaman is full of options how to actively spend your time. Surfing is definitely the most famous activity on the island. While it has always been known to surfing-pros it now also gaining popularity among locals and some indian tourists. Some resorts are already renting out boards and offer training. Adrenaline junkies will be thrilled to know there are also plenty of trekking options in the island too.Lush jungles, palm plantations and trails leading to spectacular waterfalls offer a tiring but exciting walk. White Surf waterfall is easily accessible, but for the bigger Whisper Wave waterfall one has to indulge deeper in the jungle. Both are better visited in dry season when there are less insects and no puddles and swamps.
z Swimming in the fresh water is not advisable, as salt-water crocodiles have been spotted there several times.
Swimming in the sea however, is a fine option. Deserted beaches with warm waters are welcoming. Special care is needed at some parts though, as the sea can be rough and the rip tides strong. Turn away for too long and you may find yourself much further from the shore than you have imagined. Snorkelling is possible only on few beaches, like Harminder Bay Beach or near the jetty. On the other beaches big waves and low visibility make it hard to snorkel. There is no dive centre on Little Andaman. Game fishing is gaining popularity so some fishermen can take you along on their boats. Sunbathing and relaxing on the serene beaches is actually the toughest activity to pursue, because numerous sand flies are a problem, spoiling the otherwise perfect set up. If you have insect repellents, carry them along!
