Touchdown Andaman: A Paradise Of Happy Blues
On the first day which also happened to be the Valentine’s day, we boarded our flight from New Delhi at about 5 am and reached Port Blair at about 10 am. Luckily we got the window seats and we could feel the romance in the air as we witnessed the white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and the chaste beauty of Andaman Islands.
On arrival, the travel agent greeted us and escorted us to the Blue Sea Resort in Port Blair wherein we finished all the check in process. We rested for a while and post lunch, we went ahead with exploring the cells and gallows of the Cellular Jail that took us back in time. It indeed was a great experience. We revisited the Cellular Jail to attend the awe-inspiring light and sound show which artistically portrayed the struggles of our freedom fighters.
Later we decided to relax at the Corbyn’s Cove Beach. We walked along the lush green palm trees accompanied by delicious hot pakoras and mawa kulfi. The relaxed walk on the serene beaches was rejuvenating indeed and the romantic sunrise added to the whole experience. Few hours later, we returned to the hotel, relished a sumptuous dinner and retired to bed for the day.

Post lunch we visited the Radhanagar beach, the one with the softest sand ever. Much famed to be world’s 6th beautiful beach, one should not miss out on witnessing the sunset here.
