Sightseeing

Before a sightseeing trip in the Andaman Islands, find out the visiting times of the various attractions. Options available for sightseeing places span islands, beaches, parks, jails, museums and even the odd sawmill, all within a radius of about 20km of Port Blair.

The MG Marine National Park at Wandoor, a short drive (29km) from Port Blair is famous for its beautiful beaches, fascinating coral reefs and multihued fish and marine life. The Gandhi Park is a child’s delight complete with an amusement park, deer park, water sports facilities and a restaurant. The Marina Park is similar but built right on the seashore. Viper Island, where the gallows still stand is guaranteed to give you the spooks! Yes, people were actually strung there!

Gandhi Park is a good base for a visit to the islands of Jolly Buoy and Redskin for exciting water sports like scuba diving and snorkeling. For the less adventurous who don’t want to get wet, glass-bottomed boats provide the perfect means to see the coral reefs with its teeming, colourful marine life. The Sound and Light Show at the Cellular Jail is worth catching. It effectively evokes memories of the tragic end of the exiled political prisoners banished here during India’s struggle for independence.

If museums inspire your muse, there are plenty to indulge you – ethnological displays at Anthropological Museum, exhibitions of marine life at Samudrika and decorative woodcraft at Forest Museum.

Of course, the best part of your visit will be the many islands with their gorgeous beaches. Neil Island, Havelock Island, North Passage Island, Cinque Island, Long Island, Baratang Island, Rangat, Mayabunder, Diglipur, Little Andaman Island and Chiriya Tapoo are all accessible by regular boat services from Port Blair.

You have the option of driving to Baratang (not accessible by boat), Ranghat, Mayabunder and Diglipur. A tiny and picturesque beach, Corbyn”s Cove is a short 20-minute drive from Port Blair. It can also be a long but an easy and beautiful cliff top walk from Port Blair. It is great for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. The tourist complex also has facilities for scuba diving among other sports.

Other places of interest include a guided tour around the Chatham Sawmill, located 5 km northwest of Aberdeen Bazaar, the largest wood processor in the world. Some islands like The Middle Islands, North Andaman, Little Andaman and Nicobar Islands are out of bounds for the tourist unless you have secured a special permit.

Shopping
