Corbyn’s Cove

Port Blair

No one comes to Port Blair for the beach, but, if you need a break from town, this small curve of silver sand backed by palms sits 6km south of central Port Blair. The coastal road here is a scenic journey, passing several Japanese WWII bunkers. Autorickshaws charge around ₹150. Crocodiles are occasionally spotted in the area.

It's often busy with jet skis, parasailing and other water sports.
