Rangat, Mayabunder with Private Boat Charter to Avis Island
Rangat island 170 kms by road from Port Blair is an eco tourism hub and popular for Amkunj beach, Cutbert Bay a turtle nesting ground, Dhaninallah mangrove walk and Yerratta mangrove park. Dhaninallah Mangrove Nature Walk is a wooden broadwalk meandering mangrove creeks for a distance of 713 mtr and longest walkway of its kind in the country.
Nearly three hours further to Rangat, north by road, perched on a long promontory right at the top of the island and surrounded by mangrove swamps, is Mayabunder, springboard for the remote northern Andaman Islands. The village, which is home to a large minority of former Burmese Karen tribes, who were originally brought here as cheap logging labour by the British, are more spread out and more appealing than Rangat. Popular attractions at Mayabunder include Karmatang Beach & Turtle Nestling Ground, Rampur Beach & German Jetty and Anmol Sea Handicrafts Museum.
Avis Island has a small but creamy beach. The water is very calm, placid and clear. So much so that one can easily see fish frolicking in the water and little corals if one walk a bit into the sea. It is a perfect destination for basking in the sun and sea water by simply sitting in the water. The tall, thick coconut trees provide shade which saves you from scorching heat. Going there early in the morning is always a good idea as the weather supports your trip. Avis Island is sometimes not open for tourists. To visit the Avis Island, one has to take prior permission from the local authorities. We run our charter boats there in season.
