On earth, it is the second heaven

In our life time once we must visit to Andaman as it is a heaven. All beaches are too clean and neat. For Scuba dive there are no words to explain. Rose Island, North-bay and Baratang is must to visit in Andaman including Cellular Jail. Even museums also.

Early for the better view of the sun

One of the best places to see the natural beauty. The view is just great. Children can enjoy themselves. Advice to go a bit early so that you could find a bright sunny weather for better view.

Good sea view

The major attraction of this place is 20 rupee note view point. The place is one of the hilltop location, good for photography. We visited the place on our way back from Baratang. The place is managed by Andaman forest department.
