Chidiya Tapu, Port Blair

3.9
#2 of 13 in Wildlife in Andaman and Nicobar Islands
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. Chidiya Tapu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Port Blair Edition.

    Had been to Chidiya Ka Tapu in Feb 2014 which is around 30/35 km from the nearest bazaar. The place was quite and much less crowded when we visited during evening to see sunset for which it is more famous for. Nothing is available around it so keep enough water and snacks, if you are planning to visit with kids and family. Enjoy.

    Great place for sunset...But if you fail to view that,the place is beautiful from every aspects! Thickly greened area which will give you a refreshment..!The road way to reach the place is also soothing!

    Great place to visit with friends and family. Nature comes live in chidiya tapu. You can notice clean water, crawling small conch and other shells. Wooden benches on munda pahad beach in chidiya tapu make it perfect relaxing place.
