A good place to wind up your day's sightseeing. You can enjoy the peaceful sunset here. The viewpoint is amazing. And there's a little tea shop which sells the perfect ginger tea to go along. We drove on our bike here.

The sunset is gorgeous but otherwise very average. Nothing that you won't get in any beach.. it's a 1 hr drive fruition the city and taxis are expensive.

Amazing place. Southern tip of port Blair island. Never seen a place similar to that. Pure natural beauty. Sunset point also nearby. Swimming might not be possible as there is danger of crocodile attack.

If weather is clear, around 4:30 - 5:00 pm will be good time to visit. After that it becomes dark.
