In evening we did hit the nearest beach Corbyn by renting bikes from hotel where we stayed.
Bike Rent 350INR per Day
This journey was done in Feb of 2020 before all the pandemic happened.
I was travelling with 3 of my friends and to make this trip a pocket friendly and memorable we planned on staying together in one room.
It started from Pune and following is my budget breakdown to Andaman for travelling.
From from PNQ to IXZ - 6500 INR.
Cab from Airport to Hotel - 200 INR
Cruise expense from Port Blair - Havelock - Neil Island - Port Blair : 6200 INR
We planned on getting hotels on the spot by talking to Auto and Cab drivers.
Room Cost on each Island was approximately - 1500 per night.
Things to do on Andaman Trip :
This visit to Baratang will take a full day and it is quite amazing.
On the island there were only 6 families are present and the journey goes through one of the tribal areas of Andaman. You will get to watch a few people from Tribe, considering bus ride is long and you don't fall asleep.
On the very evening of Baratang visit we did hit the Corbyn beach again as we were not satisfied with beautiful road with scenic sea on the other side of the road.
There is also one more place which will give chills with light show and breathtaking history of Kala Pani.
On the 3rd day we had to catch a cruise to Havelock. (Bookings done at McCruise, very famous in Andaman)
On the havelock island, things were more amazing as we had 3 days and planned to do Scuba.
There are many Scuba institutes and it is not necessary to know swimming for this.
Scuba cost - 4000 - 4500 INR per head.
Apart from Scuba one Havelock, there are beaches where you can visit early morning and early evening for sunrise sunset which you might not witness anywhere else in India.
Bike rent at Havelock is same 350 - 400 INR.
Beaches to visit are very nearby with about 15 min of travel.
On Neil evening can be spent at Laxmanpur Beach, it is known for sunset and sunrise.
Apart from natural bridge we will get to see the best Astro View at night which basically starts at 6 in evening.
All this sums up my Andaman!
Have a great Safar! Don't Forget to pack Rasgulla!
