First, they took us to the Ross Island, to witness the timeless memories of the colonial past here, before moving on to explore other places near Port Blair like Anthropological Museum, Samudrika Museum, and Cellular Jail. In evening, they took us to Chidiya Tapu which is amongst the best sunset spots in the region. The tour then moves to the most famous island in the Andaman Archipelago, the Havelock Island. This island is the home to one of Asia’s most beautiful beaches, the Radhanagar Beach, and also to the most active zone for corals, the Elephant Beach, making this one of the best spots for a dive in Andaman. And the adventure of diving continues on your visit to Jolly Buoy Island, which is another hot spot for coral lovers. Thanks, Thrillophilia for this amazing Adventurous Journey!!
