Chidiya Tapu, Port Blair

#1 of 14 in Wildlife in Port Blair
For the best view of the sunset from Port Blair, head to Chidiya Tapu. This quiet spot overlooks the ocean and a small hill, which hides the sun during picturesque sunset. The scenery, complemented by a few lone trees, makes for fantastic photo opportunities. Arrive a little early and take advantage of the daylight to look for local animal and plat life, such as white spotted deer, birds, and exotic orchids. Also look for a park and a beach near here, known for its excellent sea shell trove. Chidiya Tapu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Port Blair Edition.

  • Beautiful location..clear blue water and never ending waves make this place refreshing and serene..you can stand over some branches and have some amazing pictures..food and beverages stalls are here so you can have something to eat.. actually the way to reach here is much more beautiful than the place..there is a point where there is open road and there are some structures in between of the water you can climb them and have some beautiful pictures..wind speed is quite high and literally you shirt will be in a flying mode..surely you can not wear a cap there..parking are is quite big enough also
  • Chidiya Tapu, to reach here you need to take a drive of about 45 minutes from Port Blair. While driving you cross through the reserved forest area the forest is very thick and you can have the wonderful scenes. After crossing the forest you can view the beautiful scenes of sea shores.

You can enjoy this beautiful scenes up to 5pm.
