Climate is a factor that vitally affects tourism industry particularly in A & N Islands.. The best climate/season to visit A & N Islands is from October to may. Approximately, these islands get rainfall for a minimum of five months and a maximum of six months. The south west monsoons commence in beginning of May and continue till mid-October. Then, from mid-October, north east monsoon starts and continues till the mid December. When compared with south west monsoon, north east monsoon brings less rain. The period between January and April is full of sunlight and warmth. Foreign tourists like this climate and during this season/climate, the foreigners enjoy sunbath on the sea shore for some time and they go for sea bath. Of course, the Indian tourists like the climate of cloud-less sunlight, pleasant cool weather which prevails generally during the time between Octobers to December. During the period, the tourists need not worry about rain; weather is very pleasant, cool breeze blows and sea remains very calm. Visiting Inter islands by boat/ship during this season/climate is really wonderful. Tourists can witness the friendly fish (human brained), dolphins coming in group and their beautiful swimming, jumping and other naughty activities they accompany the boat to some distance.
The hills, ups and downs of these Islands carry greater part of the scenic beauty. They have superlatives, peaks, swifts, living species of plants and birds and animals like crabs. The golden sandy beaches, sparkling crystal clear sea, surrounded by beautiful mangrove forests, thick rainy forests are the nature’s gift to these islands. Once a tourist goes into the forest (not reserved one) he will forget himself and can enjoy the taste of peace. The coral reefs, underwater marine life, multicolour fishes, seaweed’s plants and flowers make these islands as dreamland and facility is provided by administration as a way to reach this dreamland. Tourists from different parts of the country enjoy the scenic beauty of the lush green forests.
Another attraction of the place lies with its creeks and sanctuaries. Travelling through the creeks, surrounded by the thick mangrove forests, really make the tourists happy and cheerful. These creeks are suitably located for film shooting. The scenic views from one end to another with some Island/Islands are background has its own beauty, which cannot be seen elsewhere in world. As a resource, this scenic resource (natural resource) has not at all been touched for exploitation for any commercially productive purposes. This area is open to the researchers as well.

Next to the creeks, sanctuaries draw a lot of tourists. Sanctuaries are vital for preservation of its fragile eco-system. In A & N Islands there are 94 sanctuaries.

The songs of different birds, beauty of their structure, their way of life which can be seen in these sanctuaries is all really worth watching.
