Confirming the unspoiled charm of Andaman Islands, Corbyn’s Cove Beach is a pristine and calm beach located about 4 km. from the main centre of region’s capital Port Blair. Palm and coconut trees extensively adorn the seashore and soft white sand adds to the enticement. Perfect for sunbathing and surfing, the beach invited tourists for memorable picnics and vacations.
Snake Island close to the beach is an ideal place for scuba diving adventure to explore the fascinating coral world. Snorkelling, boating and fishing are other scintillating activities possible at the beach. Strong water tides offer visual treat to the eyes, though the same makes the beach unsafe for swimming. Added attractions are the Japanese bunkers and pill boxes that represent the Japan’s annexation of the place decades ago.
Corbyn’s Cove tourist complex has some good resorts, restaurants, bars and facilities like changing rooms for valuable holiday experiences. You can explore rich flora and fauna of the area, visit the nearby Cellular Jail and enjoy marvellous sunsets and bird sighting.
Located alongside the Corbyn’s Cove Road, the beach is best accessible in hired taxis, as public transport facilities are not up to the mark. Reach Port Blair in a ship from Chennai or any other destination of mainland India and hire a taxi to visit the beach.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands have no rail facility. The nearest railway station on the India’s mainland is at Paradip, which is more than 1,150 km. from Port Blair. Ships and cruise vessels can be used to reach the place from the mainland India.
Port Blair Airport is only 5 km. from the beach. Get down at the airport and hire a taxi to access the beach conveniently.
