    Jolly Buoy Island

    Jolly Buoy is the Snorkeling hub of India. The best corals and sea life I have seen

    till date in crystal clear water at its shallowest. The place is a paradise on earth.

    The small island is out of a story book which you reach after an adventure

    voyage and wish to spend a lifetime upon. It is so pretty that I wish could buy it.

    Step onto one of the most beautiful beaches

    youve ever seen. Take a deep breath in. Yes,

    this is what a vacation is all about.

    There are 365 beaches in Antigua, one for

    each day of the year, but Jolly Beach Resort & Spa is blessed to be located on

    Antiguas best beach with turquoise waters and white sand stretching for a

    mile.

  • Chidiya Tapu Biological Park

    The Chidiya Tapu Biological Park (Bird Island Biological Park) came into

    existence in 2001 with the aim to conserve and study endemic and endangered

    species of animals found in the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Since then the

    park has been a centre for biodiversity and conservation where one can catch a

    glimpse of the rich fauna of the islands.

    The plan for the park has been meticulously laid out to span over 20 years and

    three phases, of which only one phase is currently open to public.

    A green and dense jungle like environment cleverly recreates the natural habitat

    of the animals here. Sprawled over 40 hectares, the park is covered with a

    variety of plant, right from the majestic Mahuas to the exquisite Padauks. While

    walking through this jungle, one would be able to catch a glimpse of a variety of

    birds flying around freely. Other than birds you could spot wild pigs as well as

    barking deer and spotted deer. Those fascinated with reptiles would enjoy the

    saltwater crocodile spotting.

    The future phases will see the park housing an aquarium, insectariums, a reptile

    house, butterfly house and a walk in Aviary. It sure is something to look forward to.

    Wandoor Beach

    Situated 25kms east of Port Blair, Wandoor beach is famous amongst tourists

    and locals alike. The picturesque scenery of the beach makes it ideal for

    swimming and coral sighting. With clean blue water contrasting beautifully

    against the dried trees, this beach is also equipped with neatly constructed

    benches and changing rooms for your convenience. The trees, uprooted during

    the 2006 Tsunami, make for scenic pictures.

    If youre the adventure junkie, then a short

    trek to the natural caves here is just the

    thing for you. The caves, formed over decades, have been carved by fierce high

    tides that surround the beach. The challenging trek is best taken up in the

    morning because the tides are low and youre able to get back by early evening.

    Overall, the calm and beautiful scenes of Wandoor beach are worth a visit for a

    soothing experience with the cave trek adding just the right amount of

    adrenaline.

  • Samudrika Marine Museum

    History, Geography, anthropology, . and the beautiful marine life ! No other

    place brings together all of these aspects of the Andaman Islands as well as

    Samudrika , the Naval Marine Museum.

    The museum has been thoughtfully divided into five different rooms, each of

    them showcasing a different facet of the Andaman Islands. A massive blue

    whale, in its skeletal form of course, greets you as you enter the museum.

    Did you know that Andaman apparently has been named after Lord Hanuman or

    Handuman as they refer to him here? From its name to how it came to be

    formed, the first room deals with the geographical history of the islands.

    The second and third rooms will be quite a delight for the young and the old

    alike. An aquarium in the second room is teeming with fishes of all shapes and

    sizes, from a parrot fish to the rare and venomous species of stone fish. The

    third room on the other hand exhibits corals, which the islands are quite

    famous for. In addition to learning more about these beautiful marine

    formations, one can also know about the sites to spot them. A fourth room

    houses an extensive display of shells. Thus giving one a complete sense of the

    marine life of the Andamans.

    As important as the marine life is to the Andamans, one cant leave the

    museum without visiting the fifth room. Here one will find information about the tribal life in the islands along

    with a display of interesting specimens of snakes and butterflies. You should visit the curio shop in case you want

    to take back a few souvenirs of your trip here.

    North Bay Island Andaman

    Located nearer to Phoenix jetty of Port Blair, this beach is also very famous for

    under water corals. Snorkeling and scuba diving is available. All sort os facilities

    are available for the people like food, clothes for rent, lockers, huts for taking

    rest etc... The one day package trip includes North Bay, Viper Island and Ross

    Island. Some travelers prefer to stay more time in North Bay to enjoy the sea

    corals through snorkeling and scuba diving. Normal trip package goes with Viper

    island first, North bay next and Ross island last. Unlike Jolly buoy and Red skin

    beaches, the crowd in North Bay coral beach is more. People come here in large

    number because of the facilities available to enjoy the beach play. Locker

    almirahs arrangement is available to store the valuables inside. There are huts to take shelter for those who don't

    want to play in the beach.

  • Red Skin Island

    Red Skin Island and Jolly Buoy Island lie next to each other and boast of rich

    under water marine life.

    Usually, tourists go to Jolly Buoy in the peak season but as rainy season

    approaches, the weather makes the commute difficult as Jolly Buoy falls in

    open sea area and then the tourists are taken to Red Skin Island.

    I happened to go to Red Skin during one of such times when the weather was

    not good for going to Jolly Buoy so our operator took us to Red Skin instead.

    Yes, even though I live here, I also travel by tour agents just to have a taste of our tourism department works here.

    And like many of the tourists who spend thousands to have a vacation here, I was disappointed too.

    As we approached Red Skin, I could see a small island, very small Island with a very narrow beach. On that narrow

    yet white sandy beach, I could see hundreds of tourists standing on the beach and hundreds playing in the sea. My

    heart thumped at the sight. I did not step out of my boat as I could see that there was barely some space on the

    beach to stand!

    This is actually an attraction for children of these islands. Here there is no

    Zsi Museum (Zoological Survey of India)

    to. In addition to marine life, the museum houses other mammals, reptiles and

    birds quite characteristic of the islands.

    Cellular Jail

    The Cellular Jail, also known as Kala Pani situated in the Andaman and Nicobar

    Islands (India). The prison was known to house many notable Indian activists

    during the struggle for India's independence. The Cellular Jail is one of the

    murkiest chapters in the history of the colonial rule in India. The construction of

    the prison started in 1896 and was completed in 1906. But the history of using

    the Andaman Island as a prison dates back to the Indian rebellion of 1857. The

    bricks used to build the building were brought from Burma, known today as

    Myanmar. The penal settlement established in Andaman by the British after the

    First War of Independence in 1857 was the beginning of the agonizing story of freedom fighters in the massive and

    awful jails at Viper Island followed by the Cellular Jail. The patriots who raised their voice against the British Raj

    were sent to this Jail, where many perished.

    The cellular jail, so known due to its isolated cells, was spread across seven wings, of which only three wings

    remain today. The well-painted building with its green gardens is quite a contrast to what one might imagine a site

    of many unspoken tortures would look like.

    Only on a visit to this place can one understand why this prison had been turned into national memorial. It is a long

    standing reminder that the freedom we so casually carry is a gift to us by these courageous men.

  • Ross Island

    The Ross Island is controlled by the Indian navy, which requires every visitor to

    sign in on entering. It was during the British rule that the island was developed

    to a perfect township. Many reminiscent of old British regime are still alive in

    this stunning Island.

    The Ross Island is about 2 km east of Port Blair and can be reached by a short

    boat ride from Phoenix Bay Jetty. The island presently houses the ruins of old

    buildings like Ballroom, Chief Commissioner's House, Govt. House, Church,

    Hospital, Bakery, Press, Swimming Pool and Troop Barracks, all in dilapidated

    condition, reminiscent of the old British regime.

    Ever since Dr. James Pattison Walker arrived in Port Blair aboard the East India

    Company's steam frigate 'Senuramis' on 10 March 1858, this island remained

    under British occupation till 1942. From 1942 to 1945, the island was under the

    occupation of Japanese. However, the allies reoccupied the island in 1945 and

    later abandoned it. During British occupation, this island was the seat of power

    of the British.
