4.4
#2 of 13 in Parks in Port Blair
Take a boat ride to Jolly Buoy Island, renowned for its rich coral and other marine life. A permit is needed to visit this island, part of a marine national park, but when you arrive, you can enjoy a pristine beach fringed by a dense forest and dotted with tree trunks. Snorkel, scuba dive, or admire the coral on a glass-bottom boat ride, but remember that this beach doesn't offer any tourist facilities, so you'll need to carry all your essentials if you plan to disembark and spend some time here.

Where to stay in Port Blair

The old colonial center of Port Blair possesses a decent array of places to stay: spruced-up old buildings housing stylish boutiques with sea views; family-run guesthouses providing both shared and private rooms; and a few newly built hotels, offering rooms from standard to luxury. Inland to the south sit a few clusters of accommodations, where luxury retreats sit side by side with simple guesthouses, while the coastal areas around the state capital have a number of beachfront lodgings set around scenic bays.
