NorthBay Island Andaman & Nicobar
To the north of Port Blair and only a 45-minute ride from Aberdeen Jetty, North Bay Island is a convenient option for the hurried tourist.
The beach is home to the lighthouse which features on the reverse of the Rs. 20 note. The lighthouse rewards anyone who braves the tough climb up with a spectacular view of the nearby islands of Ross Island and Port Blair skyline in the expanse of brilliantly sparkling waters.
A visit to North Bay Island can consume about half of your day. It is advisable to carry something to munch on, though snacks (a few run-of-the-mill Chinese dishes, and pakodas) and beverages (tea and coffee) are available on the beach.
