Chidiya Tapu Reviews & Ratings

  • Superb place with clean beaches and white sand. This is exactly the same place when you imagine Andaman in your mind or what you have seen in movies. Do not forget to take your camera when you go there ( I missed though, sigh !). As you can see in most of the beaches in Andaman now a days, crocodile boards are there as well warning you not to go much.

  • One of the best spots for gazing over amazing sunsets in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Friends and family friendly, this is a perfect spot for all as you get everything from food vendors to empty spaces for playing to some nice locations for photography.

  • A good sight for a long day trip there which is a lil away from the city area and has some tallest trees to sit below and enjoy playing with Hermit Crabs! yes they are cute and small and you can find them a lot here.

  • Phenomenal views. Be sure to pack lunch or prepare for a 2-5 kilometre walk to get food. Excellent experience

  • Beautiful location..clear blue water and never ending waves make this place refreshing and can stand over some branches and have some amazing and beverages stalls are here so you can have something to eat.. actually the way to reach here is much more beautiful than the place..there is a point where there is open road and there are some structures in between of the water you can climb them and have some beautiful pictures..wind speed is quite high and literally you shirt will be in a flying mode..surely you can not wear a cap there..parking are is quite big enough also
