Chidiya Tapu, Port Blair

3.9
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 Edition.

  • 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. After reaching there the pleasant sound of the birds will greet you along with tall thick trees embracing you. In the evening you can have the view of beautiful Sun-set. You can enjoy this beautiful scenes up to 5pm.
