The ideal duration of family holidays in Andamans varies from 4 nights, 5 days to 7 nights, 8 days. Depending on the number of islands one wishes to cover and number of activities one wishes to partake in, the ideal stay duration varies greatly.

The Andaman Islands are very relaxed in rules. Just some simple etiquettes like dressing up properly and asking for permission before taking pictures should be kept in mind. Having said that, since Andamans is a protected area, one should not expect comfort equivalent to the level of one on mainland in India.
