Wandering Around Wandoor Beach, Port Blair

Last weekend, we went to Wandoor beach, around 25 kms from Port Blair.

Wandoor is a famous beach in Port Blair and attracts hundreds of tourists everyday during the tourist season.   It is very near to Mahatama Gandhi National Marine Park which is a museum of its own kind. Tourists can also go to Jolly Buoy from Wandoor beach, Port Blair.

There are some delis on the beach that offer decent eatables. Water is clean and the beach is quite for swimming. The beach is also famous for corals and the glass boats that take you to Jolly Buoy and Red Skin island let you see the corals from the magnifying glass bottom of the boats.

The beach is an ideal location for a day time get away. It takes around an hour to reach Wandoor from Port Blair and one can come back to Port Blair the same day after spending few hours on this splendid beach.
