Introducing Diglipur & Around

Those who make it this far north are well rewarded with some impressive attractions in the area. It's a giant outdoor adventure playground designed for nature lovers: home to Andaman's highest peak, a network of caves, a famous turtle nesting site and crocodile sanctuaries, to go with white-sandy beaches and the best snorkelling in the Andamans.

However, don’t expect anything of Diglipur, the northernmost major town in the Andamans, which is a sprawling, gritty bazaar town with an ATM and slow internet connection (per hour ₹40). You should instead head straight for the tranquil coastal village of Kalipur.

Ferries arrive at Aerial Bay Jetty, from where it’s 11km to Diglipur, and 8km Kalipur in the other direction.
