4.4
#2 of 13 in Parks in Port Blair
Take a boat ride to Jolly Buoy Island, renowned for its rich coral and other marine life. A permit is needed to visit this island, part of a marine national park, but when you arrive, you can enjoy a pristine beach fringed by a dense forest and dotted with tree trunks. Snorkel, scuba dive, or admire the coral on a glass-bottom boat ride, but remember that this beach doesn't offer any tourist facilities, so you'll need to carry all your essentials if you plan to disembark and spend some time here.
