Sea Turtle, Long Island, Andaman and NIcobar Islands, Andaman & NicobarA small island, 82-km from Port Blair, its welcoming evergreen forests, sandy beaches and clean, unpolluted atmosphere makes it a popular destination.

Served by only to boats per week from the capital (usually Wednesday & Saturday), and two daily lumber launches from Rangat, it sees far fewer visitors than either Neill or Havelock, but boasts a couple of excellent beaches, at Marg Bay and Lalaji Bay, both of which are most easily reached by chartering a fisherman's dinghy from the jetty. The later beach is earmarked as the sight of a new ANIIDCO Yatri Niwas. This is a good island to head for if one wants to side-step the hordes at Havelock , but don't have time to tackle the long trip north.

HOW TO GET THERE

Ferries operate between Phoenix Bay Jetty, Port Blair twice a weekk to reach Long Islands.
