In Andaman and Nicobar Islands, if there is one place that offers everything to a traveler, it is Diglipur. From the exotic Ross and Smith Islands to Active Mud Volcanoes, the place is truly blessed with natural beauty.
The post today explores another beautiful beach called Lamiya Bay Beach, that lies in Diglipur. It is a wide, sandy beach that is long stretched along the sea and with rocks on the shore provides a different view of the sea beauty. You can see a wide assortment of dead corals on the beach.
The beach lies a few kilometers ahead of Kalipur beach and marks the foothill of Saddle Peak, the highest peak of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
The beach has brown sand, unlike the many white sand beaches in Havelock and Neil Islands. Infact, all of Diglipur’s beaches viz. Ramnagar beach, Kalipur beach and Lamiya Bay beach have black/brown sand except Ross and Smith.
Water is clear, beach is clean and the place is beautiful.
One can have a long and intense moment of solitude at the beach, while sitting on the rocks and hearing the waves crash against the rocks that produces a melodious sound and brings peace and calmness to the mind. I believe it is this elevated arrangement of rocks on the beach that make Lamiya Bay different from the other beaches.
How to reach: Take the road that goes to Kalipur beach from the jetty, and go ahead of the Kalipur beach. Pristine resort is located near Kalipur beach and isan excellent place to spend a few days.
