  • Samudrika Naval Marine Museum ... is a great place to know the marine life. The place is run by Indian Navy and houses multiple sections such as aboriginal tribes / history of Island / Navy's importance / souvenir shop etc ... It has one of the best collections of exquisite corals/ shells / super giant clams / whale skeleton / items of use by the tribals ... The place is just opposite to Andaman Teal House at Haddo ... and is a definite MUST VISIT
