If a secluded beach holiday with a touch of history and adventure excites you, then Port Blair, the capital city of Andaman and Nicobar is one of the best choices for honeymooning in India. Located at a distance of 1400 kms from its mainland India, it is one of the finest place to visit in South Andaman Island.
A visit to the Cellular Jail, notorious as “Kala Pani”, in Port Blair will take you through the times of pre Independence era and the struggle for freedom. Make sure you do not miss the sound and light show during the evenings at this national memorial.
For those who want to head away from the beaches towards the inland, there are a number of places in Port Blair that can keep you hooked. The panoramic view of nearby islands and the sea at Mount Harriet, the highest peak in South Andaman, which is 55 kms from the city is perfect for spotting some of the endemic birds and butterflies as a part of 16 kms long trek in the wilderness from Mount Harriet to Madhuban.
Finally, try to experience some of the spectacular and rare coral reefs, underwater ecosystems through glass bottom boats or scuba diving. For this you must head to the Mahatma Gandhi Marine Park, Wandoor, located at a distance of 29 kms from Port Blair and spread across 281.5 sq. kms. Jolly Buoy Island and Red Skin Island are some of the must visit diving sites here. Port Blair is perfect to be visited from the months between November to April.
