Port Blair

Historic Sites Nature Beaches
The capital and largest city of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Port Blair acts as a gateway to the landmasses that lie in the Bay of Bengal. Established as a penal colony by British colonialists, today Port Blair has transformed many of the sites pertaining to this grisly period into monuments to Indian independence, museums, and memorials to all the lives lost in the struggle. Day trips to small islands off the coast and up the shoreline's secluded beaches have become staples of Port Blair itineraries, and many visitors make the town their base for wider explorations of the islands.
