going to port either by plain the autorickshaw should not be more than 50 rupi to the city centre, here you can find some good and cheap accomodation for a night or two , though most people prefer to go to the islands as fast as possible (it is paradise and easy to understand) port blair can offer some good local food in the main basar at the second roundabout( the one after gandhi) they allso have a good restaurant in the bay area rooftop terrace good vibes and chill beer. the rickshaw drivers are to wild to discuss prices with, dont. sit in the rickshaw and ask them to drive than you pay according to how far you think you`ve gone, ( about 10-15 rupi per km) but get to the islands and check out spectacular radha nagar beach no .7 on havelock wukkid! go for camping on the beaches on the way to diglipur, beautiful jungles and serenity..... the ferrys in the ferryport go once or twice daily to neil or havelock check the tickets a day in advance. peace out
Port Blair is an importnant place when you arrive to Andaman Islands: you buy most of tickets here and this is the only place where you can get your permit to stay on islands. Instead of sitting in a dusty city though, it's better to head to Wandoor, just an hour away from the capital. It offers really nice beach and it's not too crowdy out of weekends. My favourite place to stay there is Paradise Beach Resort, just by the beach at the end of a bus route. The price might be taken as a little bit high but the people are great and area just beautifull so I believe it's worth it. And deffinately it's much nicer to spend evenings there instead of crowdy streets or hot room inside of Port Blair :)
The Andaman Islands are India's most remote state and are situated off the East Coast in the middle of the Bay of Bengal. You can get here by ferrie or flight from Chennai or Calcutta. Ihas crystal clear water, excellent for snorkelling and scuba diving. Permits for up to one month are obtainable from Port Blair, Andamans small town.
