Andaman: Andaman can be reached by sea or air. Sea isn’t the most preferred choice for tourists as such. It is used more by locals who commute between the Andaman islands and Chennai. The choice of available airlines is higher for Andaman and Nicobar. If you book well in advance, you can find reasonable pricing on the airfare too.

# Travel Time

You’ll take around 6 hours to reach Lakshadweep by flight in general although it takes longer from Hyderabad, Chennai, and Kolkata (10+ hours)

# Best time to Visit

Without any second thought, I agree that these places are the best honeymoon destinations. If you both are beach lovers, you can visit either Andaman or Lakshadweep all around the clock throughout the year. Because the holiday time is always fun.

An ideal time for a trip to Andaman would be from October to May. You can insanely indulge in the spectacular beaches under the star-lit sky that makes your heart so calm and soothing. Whether you choose to scuba dive, tread, splash, or sail, all the beaches during this time period provide you with anything and everything. Also, the chilled beer is just a cherry on the cake. Just saying!

The best time to visit Lakshadweep is from October to April. From mid-May to September it is rainy. Though all the resorts in Lakshadweep are open throughout the year, reaching there by ship is difficult during monsoon, little risky, and most of your holiday would get wasted on the travel. Islands like Agatti and Bangaram are pleasant even during the monsoon and can be reached by flight from Kochi.
