Day 1: Exploring the past of Port Blair
After an early morning flight from Kolkata, we arrived in Port Blair at 8 am. We were taken by the cab driver to the hotel our check-in. The hotel I initially requested for, was unavailable, and the rooms in the Hotel Islander Inn, were a bit cramped. However, we decided to bear with it since we were to stay here for only one night.
After relaxing in the hotel till 3 pm, we proceeded for a guided tour of the Cellular Jail followed by the light and sound show inside its premises at 7 pm. The show was a brilliant display of the dark history and struggles of Port Blair during the pre-independence era.
A few hours later, tired and exhausted, we returned to the hotel for dinner and rested for the night.

The next morning we had breakfast and checked out of the hotel. The staff was generous enough, to let us leave our bags at the hotel reception while we visited Corbyn’s Cove Beach.
Next up, we returned to the hotel, picked our bags and moved the pier at 2 pm to catch a ferry to Havelock Island. In a few hours, we reached Havelock Island and checked into Gold Star Beach Resort. As it was raining in the afternoon, we couldn’t really go out to explore the Island. Our evening went by relaxing in our rooms and spending time with our friends.
Day 3: Visiting the magical Radhanagar Beach
The next day began on a lazy note since we had a late breakfast. It was followed by a visit to the Radhanagar Beach at noon and honestly, my wife and I were left speechless by its beauty and enormity. Radhanagar, proclaimed by many people as the best beach in India, was unlike any other. It stretched on for a mile in both directions and had soft cushion-like sand which gave way to crystal clear waters.
Around 3 pm, we returned to the resort, hired some motorbikes, and began exploring Havelock Island on our own. We also visited the quiet and serene Kala Patthar beach and later as darkness fell, we returned to our resort for dinner and overnight stay.
