Little Andaman offers the best exposure, even if the season is quite short due to the monsoon which hits the sector from May to August. From November to February some southwest spots, accessible by sea, remain passable. Surfing is fast gaining in popularity in the island as an activity option with small resorts renting out surfboards and arranging for surf camps near Butler Bay beach whose waves make it the best surfing destination in India. Little Andaman has been covered as a prime surfing destination in India in ” The Stormrider Surf Guide, Indonesia and the Indian Ocean”. There is a private agency which runs a Surfing School at Little Andaman.
