Day 03 : Port Blair
The lovely island has turquoise waters and beautiful lagoons. The island has historical importance as Indian freedom fighters used to be deported here by the British who were then never allowed to meet their families. The inhabitants were made to starve to death. Hence, it became notorious with the name of "Kaala Pani" or Black Waters.
We shall visit the following attractions of Port Blair during the day:
Cellular Jail : Indian freedom fighters used to be confined to the fortifying walls of the jail by the British during imperial period. It now has been declared a monument of national importance. It is reminiscent of the British rule in India and is built in colonial style.

Day 04 : Port Blair Beaches
Corbyn's Beach: We will start our day with a visit to Corbyn's Beach on the fourth day of our Andaman Beach tour. It is a popular hangout destination for tourists and locals who come to the beach to view a mesmerizing sunset and enjoy swimming. However, a part of the beach was destroyed in the devastating tsunami that hit the region in 2004 and hence swimming could prove dangerous as the beach water has strong undercurrents.
Boat Tours: You can have a pleasure boat tour of 3 islands of Ross, Viper and North Bay. The daylong tour would include complimentary lunch. Two islands tour covering North Bay and Ross Islands is also available that starts at 10.00 am from Rajiv Gandhi Water Sports Complex.

Your overnight stay will be at a beachside resort in Port Blair.
We shall enjoy some water sports activities on the fifth day of our Andaman Beach tour in Port Blair. We shall start our day with snorkeling at port blair.
Snorkeling at Port Blair: The perfect place for enjoying snorkeling in the island is Jolly Buoy. A ferry plies to Jolly Buoy daily from Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park at Wandoor, which is 30 km off Port Blair. Snorkeling at the island would provide you a lifelong experience as you would be able to explore exotic marine species of the island like star fishes, see cucumber and coral reefs. Remember to carry your own drinking water and food to Jolly Buoy as no eating joints are available there.
Mini Zoo: The zoo is situated at Chidiya Tapu and houses some of the exotic species of animals, plants, birds and reptiles found on Andaman & Nicobar Islands
Casual Ramble: It is perhaps the best option to explore the allures of the lovely island at your own pace. There are steep hills, so remember some landmarks so that you do return safely to your base camp after your ramble.
