Corbyn’s Cove Beach
Corbyn Chowk, Port blair
Teeming with people and encircled by lush green coconut palms, the Corbyns Cove Beach is one of the more busy beaches in the Andaman Islands. This is the closest beach to the Port Blair, a mere 8 kms from the City center. The drive to the beach is a stunning visual treat. You will get quite a view of the Marina Park, the pristine blue sea lining along the entire route.
What makes this beach such a popular destination with tourists is its many entertainment options. Zip across the ocean in a jet ski or a motor scooter. Enjoy a relaxing drink with your friends at the beach facing restaurant. The blue benches lining the area make for a great seat to enjoy the view. You will also find clean and well maintained bathrooms and changing rooms at your convenience.
For those staying near the beach, there are great accommodation options to choose from. You could try the Peerless Sarovar Portico Resort which is the only beach resort in the city. Or the Hornbill Nest Guest House, which contrary to its name does house human beings. All in all this is a great beach to hang out at if people and energy is what you are looking out for, however not such a great beach to be swimming at.
Note: This beach attracts a lot of crowd, often resulting in the surrounding being dirty.
