"The Andaman Islands" Union Territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands by illumina

While on the Andamans, we visited Port Blair, Ross Island, Havelock Island and Neil Island.

After a blissfully relaxing time, we flew to Chennai

Since there is no separate page for Neil Island, I will write about it here (for Ross Island, see Port Blair).

Neil Island (pictured here and above) is a small triangular island to the south of Havelock, and is much much quieter than its neighbour. There are very few shops, and no parties advertised; this is just a place to lie in a hammock all day, perhaps do a bit of snorkelling.

    That’s a fascinating photo of Nature reclaiming the old settlement on Ross Island. The Cocon Huts on Neil Island look intriguing, too.

    This looks really nice. I was not aware that there was a ferry service out there. i think that sounds very interesting.

    Hhahahahah! Lizard on a Ketchup bottle! This is Indian village. But I believe you enjoyed the meal. I am waiting to see your Kolkata page. You should have contacted me in Kol.

    I wish I had more time for travelling! It looks wonderful to lie in a hammock under the palmtrees on the beach.
