Is Port Blair on your bucket list? This gorgeous city is located in the Bay of Bengal and is the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, surrounded by picture-perfect coastal settings as well as forested landscapes. Port Blair offers a tropical vibe with island hopping opportunities, pristine coral reefs that allow for amazing snorkelling and diving adventures, and mesmerising ocean sunsets.
Away from its beaches and nature, Port Blair has a charming cultural side with plenty of exploration opportunities at museums, historic landmarks, and vibrant local markets. A trip to the city is incomplete without visiting the Cellular Jail, a former colonial prison during the freedom struggle in India. This iconic landmark offers evening sound and light shows that depict the story of the country’s independence era.
Port Blair is a foodie’s paradise with lots of fresh, tropical snacks and dishes to indulge with. Mangos and pineapples are a popular cuisine here, as is seafood. Some of the city’s best seafood restaurants include the Full Moon Cafe, Anju Coco, and Red Snapper, and if you’d like to dine on authentic South Indian food, then we recommend a visit to Fat Martin’s.
