5 of the most Instagrammable locations in the Andamans


With a location like the Andamans, almost every sight is click worthy. The spectacular sunsets, the beautiful underwater sights, the natural wonders and historic places all come together in one vacation for you. And what is a good vacation without amazing photos that you can flash on Facebook and Instagram and get likes pouring in. (We all do a bit of that!)

Photos and videos are a great way to capture your memory of the location and go back after years to relive the experience. When it comes to Andamans, here are 5 instagrammable locations that are an absolute must when you visit. Say cheeezzze!

1. The natural sand bar connecting Ross and Smith Islands

The Ross and Smith islands in Andaman have a unique connection – a natural white sand bar that is visible during a low tide. Walking from one end to another, you’ll see the sea caressing both sides of this beautiful piece of land. While there is nothing quite like an aerial view, your best pic here can be when you are right at the start point at Ross Island and have the view of the sand bar behind you

2. The mud volcanoes

The Andamans is a unique natural phenomenon of nature – the mud volcanoes. A huge tourist attraction, many people travel through the reserve forest early in the day to catch a glimpse of this interesting formation. The mud volcanoes are formed when gases and hot water trapped beneath the surface start spewing out to form a mud dome. It’s an ‘active volcano’ for all its worth and isn’t something you see everyday. You can’t get too close but a souvenir pic is a definite must.

3. Scuba / snorkel pictures

Andaman has some of the best diving spots in south East Asia. A trip to the islands will be incomplete if you don’t take up an underwater adventure. There’s snorkelling, sea walks and a variety of options in scuba diving. Each of these has local organizers waiting with an underwater camera just for you to say cheese! So click away

4. The ethereal roots at Ross Island

Ross Island holds the key to many important events that happened in the Andaman islands. From being a capital island to being conquered by Japanese in the World War II to an earthquake that almost ruined it, there is a lot that went on here. And it is none other than the trees in the island that’ll tell you this story. With roots engulfing dilapidated structures, it almost feels like nature is on a fight to take the island back from our stronghold – and its winning. Use perfect horror filters for your pics here

5. The sunset at Chidiyatapu

Chidiyatapu or bird island has one of the most picturesque beaches in Andaman. The sunset on the beach is especially beautiful and a complete delight for photographers. Here’s where you get the picture perfect beach shots that are both framable and instagrammable.

    So many beautiful places I would love to visit and have on my instagram feed for sure. How interesting the mud volcanoes are I would love to see them one day. Sunsets truly are beautiful and chidiyatapu looks stunning.

    A few years ago the Andaman Islands was one of those destinations where you could give some people a pin and a map of the world, tell them to locate the Andaman Islands, and the pin would probably go anywhere between Alaska and Tasmania. But I think there’s growing awareness of where the islands are and what unspoilt idyllic views they offer. For those of us who want to escape and don’t mind travelling a bit, the Andaman Islands could be one of the destinations of the next decade.
