Port Blair's main attraction, Corbyn’s Cove Beach offers a mesmerizing view as the winding road routes, bluish-green water, corals and the coconut palm lining look more like a painting. The beach is famous for water sports like speed boating, boat ride, scuba diving, surfing, and others. The rich vegetation and flora of the beach is very attractive.
Wrapped in coconut palms, this lazy beach is a fine getaway for anywhere who arrives at Port Blair. Just as much as tourists can sip cocktails and enjoy scuba diving, they also get to see the remnants of Japanese bunkers that were abandoned way back during the colonial days. Today this soothing beach is well protected by the tourist department to enhance tourism and also allow visitors to enjoy the local cuisines that the culture offers here.
People have loved the nearby reefs in the beach area and there are great picnic spots for families. Don't miss a boat trip to Snake Island if you like experiencing the thick mangrove forests and slight water life as you enter the island. The ones who love to stroll and see the area around the beach can walk around 7 kilometers to visit the Jail before heading to the beach.
