Port Blair is a sightseeing intensive place and so is a good tourist
destinations. However travelers seeking leisure and recreation will
be disappointed and therefore visit Port Blair mainly as a transit
point for visiting Havelock Island where a few eco-resorts are
situated and where Scuba / Snorkeling can be enjoyed in pristine
blue waters while enjoying a remote island experience. Baratang
Island and Wandoor are another two destinations accessible from Port
Blair (Baratang Island (5 hours drive) and Wandoor (29 kms - 1.5
options - Port Blair does not have any specific market area or a
town centre. Accommodation options are spread around the area.
Surprisingly being part of an Island, it does not have a beach
except Corbyn's Cove which is 7 kms away. Good hotels
here have nice sea views and a spreadout feel. Mid-segment hotels
are like business hotels and recommended for a transit stay.
Stay - 1 or 2 nights Seasonality : Oct-March (Winter)
