Enclosed by tropical forest and a serene coastline, the capital of Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a lively destination for visitors.
The city has a vibrant amalgamation of Indian Ocean inhabitants – Bengalis, Tamils, Telugus, Nicobarese and Burmese. For urban dwellers, this place is the perfect Nirvana, enveloped in a modicum of the unchanged from times immemorial. The decadence of the colonial rule can be felt lingering in the air despite the ages and the time passed. Far removed from the gnawing realities of urbanisation, Port Blair offers unscathed biodiversity and remnants of the British era. From the infamous Cellular Jail to a horde of historical and defence museums along with the unparalleled virgin beaches and balmy breezes, Port Blair warrants extended exploration.
The capital of Andaman and Nicobar Islands offers several water-based activities like snorkelling, scuba diving, sea-cruises and glimpses of the history and culture of the region.
