Travel for me is not just covering all the places of a particular destination, rather it is exploring and experiencing the best places of my interest. My idea of travel is exactly same as Naina of YJHD. I always travel like a student. By that, I mean less preference for comfort, a little high on impulse but not reckless, keeping an open mind for learning and always up for adventures!
We reached Port Blair in the afternoon. I'm not a fan of historical places, monuments, caves, museums etc. But, if you like these you can explore Cellular jail, Samudrika Museum, water sports, nearby beaches etc in Port Blair. We simply checked in the hotel and roamed around the local market, talked to local people and ate. Ensure to book a window seat to not miss this bird eye view of Andaman while flying.
There is a beautiful set of twin islands in North Andaman, called Ross & Smith Islands. The islands are connected by a sand bar (check out drone shots on Google). To reach here, you need to take a taxi from Port Blair to Diglipur (300 Km from Port Blair) , which takes around 8-9 hours. Other options are local bus or Government ferries. Its difficult to get government ferries as they prefer local people over tourists. You can get those through agents as well. Being far is one of the reasons not a lot of tourists go there and should be one of the reasons for you to not miss this one.
Ross & Smith Islands
The next day we took a local bus (Costed us 15 rupee each) to the place where one boards the boats to reach Ross and Smith Islands. The Boat takes maximum 4 people and cost ₹ 4000 total. Since we were just two people, it costed ₹ 2000 per person. The boat person lets you stay there for 2 hours which is enough. Not a lot of people travel to this Island as it takes 3 days to cover it from Port Blair and since it was off season, not a single person was there on the island. Can you believe it? An entire set of twin islands to ourselves! what a luxury. It is amazingly vast and beautiful.
The next day we took our pre-booked ferry from Phoenix Jetty(Port Blair) to Havelock Island. It costed us ₹ 1800 per person and took around 45 minutes. There are government ferries as well which are comparatively cheaper but difficult to get. There are only two private ferries from Port Blair, Makruzz and Green Ocean. Green Ocean has an open deck above so you can have a look at the magnanimous sea and get amazing pictures clicked.
