The island is easily accessible, with very interesting historical ruins. The surprise element was the clear untouched beach..

British landed and had their offices in this island. Now it is just a monumental place with good views around. One can spend couple of hours if you like nature and old history.

The place is a short boat ride from the Port blair sports complex. If the boat wait is very long just skip the tour as it's not worth a long wait.

This was the colony/island were Britisher's stayed and during world war 2 was occupied by the Japanese. Old remains of the colony are still preserved to give a feel of that era.
