Lalaji Bay Beach, Long Island

Andaman and Nicobar Islands are blessed with many small islands that are no less than God’s miracle when it comes to natural beauty. One such wonder is Long Island and its Lalaji Bay beach.
Lalaji Bay Beach, Long Island, Middle Andaman

Last week, we explored one more great beach of Andamans – Lalaji Bay Beach.

This fantastic beach is in Long Island, Rangat that falls in Middle Andaman.

Long Island  is well connected with Rangat, Middle Andaman by means of regular ferries that run almost everyday. I used almost because in extremely bad weather conditions, the boat ride gets cancelled but it happens rarely.

Lalaji Bay Beach is a beautiful beach but it requires a ride by dunghi after reaching Long Island as it lies on the other side of the island.

Lalaji Bay beach is a beautiful, sandy beach on the west coast of Long Island. One has to take a boat from Rangat jetty to reach here. The boat ride is quite comfortable and takes around 1.5 hrs. The boat cruises through Mangrove creek thus providing equally scenic views around.

From Long Island jetty, one has to take a Dunghi boat to get to the West coast and then walk a few kilometers to reach the beach.

The island is a long, sprawling white sandy beach with clear water. One can easily bask in the sun or get immersed in the clean water to give a treat to mind and body.

It should be a must visit on your list when you come to North and Middle Andamans.

How to reach Lalaji Bay Beach, Long Island: There are regular boats from Yerrata Jetty in Rangat to Long Island. One way ride takes about 1.5 hrs and goes through beautiful creek making it a journey to remember. After you reach Long Island jetty, you need to hire a dunghi or walk for over an hour to reach Lalaji Bay beach.

    Hi Surabhi, Please let me know about accommodations in Long Island. Is it possible to find a place in the mid- January if I arrive there without any prior booking? I’ll be there with my wife and and 7 years old son. what about the communication between Long and Havelock Island(my next destination)?

    • Long Island has a govt guest house and a private hotel as well. During the peak tourists season, prior booking is strongly advised. Ferry takes about 3-4 hrs from Havelock to Long Island.

    Is there a regular ferry service from Long to Havelock? My plan is Rangat>Long Island>Havelock>Neil Island. Is that okay? What do you suggest? Thank you very much!
