The flight from Chennai to Port Blair was more than a 2 hours journey with an amazing view. We flew over the Andaman Sea all the time, trying to spot ships, waves and boats. It was difficult to distinguish between the horizon and the water. There was no line that would divide them. As if one merged into the other, nature and love didn’t look anything different. We flew over some beautiful islands, which later someone told us were Nicobar Islands. If Heaven exists, I can say that I have seen it. It was time to land, and being a good traveller, I refused to use my phone to click this view. It would stay in my heart forever.
Right after rushing out of the airport, we drove to try our luck with helicopter services to Havelock. No luck there, the tickets were sold for the day and next day. Next, we had to try to get the Govt. ferry tickets. We went to the jetty, and fortunately/unfortunately booked our tickets for the ferry scheduled for the next day. With that said, we were stuck in Port Blair for a day. We checked in to a hotel (now this was complimentary from makemytrip.com) named Shompen. Well, I won’t recommend the hotel, even though we chose to stay at this one amidst several offered by the travel site. It was decent, but while you are in one of the most beautiful places, you would definitely not want to sleep within walls without any window with a view. Though the roof-top restaurant was good and food was good too.
We wanted to make the most of our stay in Port Blair, and hopped into an auto-rickshaw to head towards the nearest beach. that’s when we were driven to Corbyn’s Cove Beach. Corbyn’s Cove Beach is a beautiful beach with many coconut trees guarding the shore. So, here some pictures from the beach. Don’t forget to sip some coconut milk here, while you watch the sun go down. So here’s the beautiful beach-Corbyn’s Cove Beach.
Happy weekend everyone!!!
