Beautiful view of Smith Island from the boat
Entry will be closed by 2 pm. We will get around 2.5 – 3 hours to spend in the island
We reached this beautiful movie like scenic island by around 12.30 pm. By that time, few families who were there returned back and we were the only ones in the entire island for next 3 hours. It was scenic, calm and peaceful.

Plan during week days as much as possible and try to reach there by noon, so that it will be less crowded.Also, you get stunning bluish green views of the ocean when there is good sunlight

Relaxing time 🙂
Sand separation between Ross & Smith Island. We can walk down this beautiful stretch and go to Ross Island.
Marks of snails in the sand
Ross Island is a separate wild life sanctuary and we can take a Rs.75 ticket/person from Smith island and walk across here in 5-10 mins.
Pathway to island. When you walk inside, you can feel thousands of snails moving around. Once it senses our foot steps, it will go inside the shells. It was interesting to watch.
Time to return back with a bundle of life time memories with the most beautiful island we have ever been to.

Day 3

Start by morning to Port Blair

Amkunj Beach

  • Can be visited while returning back to Port Blair/ Going to Diglipur, depending upon the time availability.

Opposite to Amkunj beach entrance, if we go inside around 1 km there a small waterfall surrounded by the jungle.

It will give a nice feel of forest Jacuzzi with chilled water and greenery around.

Its an offbeat location. Check out if you are interested and have time.

3rd day night, we will be back at Port blair. Its a bit tiring 3 day trip, but totally worth it, if you would like to experience the core of Andaman and nature.
