As the name suggests Chindiya so this place actually is for birds watching. If you are a wildlife lover than you would love this place. You can see varied variety of birds here. It is one of the famous places in port blair for best sunset view. Little away from the city. Approx 1hr drive but worth going.

It is a tourist spot in Andaman a bit our skirt of port Blair city around 10 km from the main city .... You can hire a car or scooty to visit there even auto you can take but it will be a bit costly but car will take Around ₹1000-₹1500 but again depends on the size and scooty will take around ₹500 for 24 hours. And the way is very beautiful I must say. If you reach over there early in the morning you can visit Suicide point from there you will get a mesmerizing view of the sea. Though sea is not open over here to go into waters due to crocodile threat. But it's safe now still they don't allow...

Long known to be the best place to watch the sunset in the Andaman Islands, it doesn't disappoint. It's around 30km from the main city and the drive is a bit tiring but it is worth it. The areas surrounding and opposite the beach are beautiful and you're able to get some fantastic photographs.

This place is for bird watching. I reached there i thought why would i come there i don't have any binocular or a high end camera for bird watching but i am in a caravan and the planned is set. I thought that it is like other beach and i was feeling bored but then i found a small trek to reach on the top of the small hill and from there you can see a whole sea and a beautiful sunset. If you love trekking, you should visit this place.
