Rajiv Gandhi Water Sports Complex, Port Blair Reviews - Write a Review
Port Blair has many jetties, but this is one of the main ones and probably the most beautiful sporting a running track, small restaurant, water sports, area, a park and aquarium. The complex is named after Rajiv Gandhi who was the then Prime Minister on his visit to the Islands in 1986 On one side of the Jetty there is also a statue of Rajiv Gandhi throwing a garland into the sea. Home of a very busy Aberdeen Jetty with lots of boats, ferries, cruises and thousands of people making use of it to visit either North Bay, Ross Island or Viper Island or other cruises including Jet Skiing, etc. During the day or the evening when it becomes even more picturesque, the place has a very relaxing feeling. It is very clean and well maintained with many benches to sit and just take a break. Good for walking or just jogging. Very visible from here is both Ross Island and North Bay.
Andaman water sports complex is heaven for water sports activities.The jetty in Andaman water sports complex is called ' Aberdeen Jetty'. The proximity islands are Ross Island and North Bay. This place is 60 feet down from cellular jail.This complex has one children's park.It has track & traffic signals.They are teaching about traffic signals & basic rules to children.There is a bridge on the middle of the sea, it was splendid experience. Overall one of main attraction in port Blair & should not be avoided.
We stayed in this island for about a week. One important thing I want to mention here is that this may be couple of tourist destinations in India where you are not cheated by any one.this is wonderful place.you have to maintain the timing.Otherwise you are going to miss many things. Here majority of travelling is through ships like our city buses.food is predominantly South Indian. In fact one week is not enough to explore these islands.One should not miss Jolly buoy island and cellular jail.
Best place to enjoy water sports like jet skiing . Avail motor boats from here to visit ross island and northbay islands . Also Andaman Dolphin- boat tickets are available.
A good spot for the tourists to enjoy jet-ski scooter rides. You can find boats sailing for Ross islands and North Bay from here. Sailing time-8:00 am - 2:00 pm Its a good place to hangout and enjoy the breeze of the sea.
