It has surreal feel to it, you can climb down and sit in one of the isolated beaches, or choose to travel to the pond, or goto the graveyard (eerie!) or get inside one of the japanese bunker (although it might be kind of dirty and smelly) just stare at the huge roots holding the island together. It's a beautiful... More

great place to see the ruins of the British Raj buildings. flocks of deer walk past and peacocks saunter around. lovely place for kids and adults who are kids at heart. their are buggy which takes you around and is good for a quick view if you are travelling with kids or senior citizens.

I have red mixed reviews about this place but for me a history nerd this was amazing. Almost like an Pompei but with history from recent time with architecture and structures (like the pool) very much the same you still see in Europe everyday. It's an abandon ghosttown with the djungle taking back what it once lost. Seeing all pictures... More

So this island is part of the sightseeing itenary of port blair. We came here on our sightseeing boat. Nice scenic beauty, silver white sands and vast blue sea. Windy and refreshing. All beaches of Andaman are beautiful, and this is no exception. Nice place to visit.

The tickets for the visit to this island is only available with the tourism board... More

You can reach this beautiful island from Port Blair through boats. It look more scenic from top of Cellular Jail as well as North Bay Light house. Lush green and contrast with deep blue sea water.
