Ross Island was known as the ‘Paris of the East’.Half an Hour ferry ride from Port Blair, Last ferry leaves around 3:30pm.Don’t miss the light and sound show it’s amazing, Starts around 5:30pm.
Ross Island is about 2 km east of Port Blair.
This island was badly affected by the tsunami and lost its most picturesque beach. You can find deers walking along your side without any fear. Also, it has historical importance as it played an important part in world war 2
Look at these beauties !! This is at Ross Island. You’ll be greeted by hundreds of deer and many many peacocks. No matter how many times you’ve seen a peacock dance in it’s full glory, it’s never enough. So many of them started dancing together as if there is no tomorrow. And the deer were so so cute to the core.Port Blair was saved from the 2004 Tsunami by Ross Island else much of Port Blair would have got washed away.The picture says it all here about the destruction that took place.
It's very near to Port Blair which you can reach through a ferry. It's a beautiful place. One could see many historical things here.
It was during the British rule that the island was developed to a perfect township. Many reminiscent of the old British regime are still alive in this stunning Island. The island presently houses the ruins of old buildings like Ballroom, Chief Commissioner's House, Govt. House, Church, Hospital, Bakery, Press, Swimming Pool and Troop Barracks, all in dilapidated condition, reminiscent of the old British regime.
