Chidiya Tapu, Port Blair

3.9
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Port Blair
For the best view of the sunset from Port Blair, head to Chidiya Tapu. This quiet spot overlooks the ocean and a small hill, which hides the sun during picturesque sunset. The scenery, complemented by a few lone trees, makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Arrive a little early and take advantage of the daylight to look for local animal and plat life, such as white spotted deer, birds, and exotic orchids. Also look for a park and a beach near here, known for its excellent sea shell trove. Chidiya Tapu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Port Blair Edition.

  • Good spot to view Sun sets behind one of the island, the place is approx 25 Kilometers from Airport. Good to know that road widening work is in full swing. Four line road definitely save travel time to the spot. Small park with seating arrangement at cliff is made available to enjoy sun set. Public transport is available, which reaches much prior to sun set and return only after sun set, which easing tourists / locals a pleasant travel.
  • Awesome place. The way for going beach is more beautiful... It is a reserved forest,. You can see many types of birds their. No swimming no diving area... Beware from crocodile
  • Nice place with full greenery and excellent scenic beauty. The sea and the islands gives a spectacular picturesque view. Good place to pass time with friends or family enjoying the surrounding areas amidst nature.
  • The place is good. Take a battery golf car and see the spots easily. You can walk and roam freely and no fixed route but it's advised to start from the right side and enjoy it!! There are many species of flora and fauna inside it. This is surely an exciting place for kids and children. Entry free is 20/- per head.
  • It's yet another beach at Port Blair. The travel to this beach along with the poor condition of the road makes it unworthy to visit. Beach is netted due salty water croc infection. Got mangrove forest along the beach side. If visiting be there for sunset.. it closes at 5pm. On the way you can see a Blue Whale skull displayed on the roadside.. Its a spot to see Sunset and is not the best..
