This season is generally not preferred to visit the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as the monsoon here brings average to heavy rainfall. Normal rainfall here is anywhere between 200 mm – 300 mm and the island experiences immense sea waves during the monsoon season. Perhaps, the transportation here gets barred and will be inaccessible via sea and can also cause the flights that are travelling for Port Blair to delay for hours. The tourists travelling from very far places might have to face endless waiting hours. But upon reaching here, they can have a quiet time inside the resort with relaxing massage and fun indoor activities. The temperature during monsoon season ranges from 22 °c – 35 °c in Andaman and Nicobar island.
