The beauty of Corals

A replacement for Jolly Buoy island. We were supposed to go to Jolly Buoy but because of rains it was closed and we ended up here in Red Skin. We were lucky as we had a local with us who had given us his snorkeling mask, which proved out to be a blessing in disguise as my father and me were able to do snorkeling on our known at leisure instead of waiting for the person to take us along with him in a tube.The marine life is a different thing all together and one can only know its true beauty once he sees it with his own eyes.The corals are well protected as this island comes under the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park.Even though it was drizzling, snorkeling was a wonderful experience.Tip : Please wear sandals or aqua shoes as corals might hurt your feet.

A must visit in Port Blair

Marine Park is made of 15 islands out of which public access are allowed only on 2 islands- Jolly Buoy and Red Skin, that too after proper reference checks of the tourist. Access is allowed to one island at a time changing alternatively every 6 months. It was time for Red Skin at that time.On the way to island, we were briefed about adventure available at Red Skin. There were two options Snorkelling and Glass Boats. Since we have already done Scuba, so snorkelling didn't attract us, we went for Glass Boats to have a view of amazing varieties of corals beneath the sea. It was a lifetime experience; we got the sea so many types of fishes and hundreds of type of corals.Island was very well-maintained and was quite clean. We spent couple of hours relaxing and clicked photographs of the amazing view. We came back by same ferry at around 1 pm.

Beautiful sight

Beautiful sight. Enjoy water games. Seeing corals is wonderful. Also a romantic place. This place can be visited with couple and also with family and friends. Warm cloth should be with us to prevent cold winds. Also be careful while playing with water.
