North Bay Beach is just north of Port Blair.The beach and the snorkelling opportunities in its fringing coral reefs are the closest ones you will find to Port Blair, and therefore, it gets quite crowded. A ferry from Aberdeen Jetty at 9 am and 2pm will take you to North Bay. The corals at North Bay are rather good and spread over large area. you are very likely to spot many fish, or lobster or even calm and coral reef. Snacks and basic meals are available in some shacks on the beach.
