The only connectivity to the Andaman and Nicobar islands is Port Blair, and because of the ferry timings it is likely that you will be spending 2 nights and 2 days here- the first day and the last.

We got to Port Blair on a late afternoon in November and were welcomed with fresh island air and light drizzles, it was perfect. After checking into our hotel we went to NicoBar, a small bar in the Fortune Island Bay Resort to watch the sunset and have a couple of beers. The view from this bar is stunning, it is the same as the picture of the North Bay Island on the Rs 20 note. The sun set’s early around 5 pm because Andaman follows the standard Indian time even though it’s closer to Thailand. Before dinner at a small hip cafe in town called Excel, we went to watch the light and sound show at the famous Kaala Pani prison of Port Blair.

After some heavenly days in Havelock, we spent our last day in  Port Blair to take our flight back home. This time we visited the Kaala Pani in the morning, the guide showed us around and told us some interesting facts and stories about the place. We had some time to left to see a couple of souvenir shops and have lunch by the sea at Bay View before we left this little paradise.
