Port Blair

Port Blair is the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Its lush green landscape is welcoming and its location on the coastal line of the Bay of Bengal brings with it charming palm-lined beaches and spectacular marine life. But it's the relics from Port Blair's political past which reign prominent. A Cellular Jail, built by the British to house political prisoners, has been transformed into an unlikely tourist attraction, and its World War 2 Japanese Bunkers are also popular with visitors drawn to the unconventional.

More traditional destinations include Corbyn's Cove, where the locals like to swim and MiniZoo, which houses some species unique to these islands. Take a fishing boat to Mangrove Creeks or over to Mount Harriet National Park, known for its Andaman wild pigs, saltwater crocodiles, turtles and robber crab. Ross Island is a short boat ride from Port Blair's Aberdeen Jetty and home to the ruins of once-majestic buildings like the State Ballroom. Or take a trip to the aptly-named Barren Island, a stark wilderness characterised by the only active Volcano in South Asia.
