Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
For the best view of the sunset from Port Blair, head to Chidiya Tapu. This quiet spot overlooks the ocean and a small hill, which hides the sun during picturesque sunset. The scenery, complemented by a few lone trees, makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Arrive a little early and take advantage of the daylight to look for local animal and plat life, such as white spotted deer, birds, and exotic orchids. Also look for a park and a beach near here, known for its excellent sea shell trove.

  • About an hour journey from pott Blair . A very calm place , you got to see nice flora and fauna. Famous for the sunset , however could not experience it due to time constraints. 
  • Very clean place with picturesque view. A wooden brigde, tall trees, jhula, etc makes a place very beautiful, and what to tell about the sea which was very clean without any croud. Really amazing and ...  read more »
  • It is quite far from Port blair. Chidiya Tapu is not too good as other beaches of Andaman. Road to Chidiya Tapu is very good and full of sea view. This place is also not good for bath. 
  • Mostly famous for its beautiful sunset ... the beach is more than an hour's drive from Port Blair ... thru dense forest ... As evening sets in thousands of birds return to their nest and the sound is amazing ... The place gets its name from the same Chidiya Tapu meaning bird island ... There are not many water sport activities available ... One can go for a hike to suicide point ... After sunset the place gets dark too fast ... because of the surrounding dense forest ... so its better to return back just after sunset
  • Great place to be with friends and family. It has a nice point to view sunset also. A must visit place in Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
  • Best place to view sunset... Calm and "not so crowdy"...
  • This place is quite good and not so crowded but it has strong unpleasant smell due to mangrove forest.
  • Manda Pahar at Chidiyatapu is an awesome picnic spot.. Do not miss the sunset ... It's a must try experience here !!
