Witness Bioluminescence at Havelock Island-
This stunning sight is going to be spectacular! The sight of galaxies of small stars drifting underneath your feet while kayaking on this island is an unforgettable experience. Make your way to Havelock Island’s beach on a moonless night to view the wonder of bioluminescence, which occurs due to the abundance of phytoplankton in the sea.
Also known as Kala Pani, it is an old colonial prison that is situated in Port Blair. Built by the Britishers, it was used particularly to exile Indian political prisoners. The jail complex is now under the Government of India, and has been recognised as the national memorial monument, where one can visit to learn more about India’s freedom movement, and prisoners who were held captive there.
Despite the fact that Ross and Smith are two separate islands, they are united by a sandbar to form a single group of islands. To visit these set of islands, you would need to obtain forest permission from the Forest Office in Diglipur. These islands are linked by a natural sandbar that hides during high tide and recedes during low tide, allowing the water to recede from the sandbar, allowing them to become one piece of land.
Diglipur and Bartang both have mud volcanoes. You’ll need a whole day to visit the area, as you’ll want to see the limestone caverns as well as the mud volcano. There are no specific permits required to visit this location, although you should not be on a tight schedule.
