Detailed Overview

Jolly Buoy Island is famous for its underwater corals and the pristine, untouched clear beach. Turquoise coloured waters, scenic views, preserved beaches and breathtaking rides are what Jolly Bouy Island has to offer. The white sand is comfortingly warm and the crystal waters wave invitingly. It’s a part of the Mahatma Gandhi National Park and is therefore protected well – allowing the native species to thrive without much human interference 

Wandoor Beach only 25km from Port Blair, Wandoor Beach is vast and overlooks Jolly Buoy Island. The sand is bright and clean – perfect for lounging – and the water is famous for its corals. Boats to Jolly Buoy island leave from Wandoor Beach (by 7.30am) and back (1.30-2.30pm). Little shacks for food and refreshments are dotted all over the beach - leaving no tourists wanting nothing else.

Good trip. Team had briefed us on all details a day before so we knew all aspects and were well prepared. Pick-up happened on time but we had to wait at jetty for the boat. Wandoor Beach is nice without crowd but best part is the boat trip and the island.
