About Chidyatapu Beach (Munda Pahad Beach)
Set in a serene setting of the Emerald islands at just 25 kms away from Port Blair, Munda Pahar beach in Chidiya Tapu is about as close to nature as it gets. From its meandering mangrove cover to the stunning sunsets, Munda Pahar beach offers you the essentially Andaman experience. Only 40 minutes by road, the beach is also called Sunset Point that offers you a majestic view of the seaside sunset. The seabed however is very rocky and not recommended for swimming.
Since its emergence as a favored spot by travelers, Munda Pahar Beach has redesigned and remodeled infrastructure for its visitors. You can also satisfy the adventure junkie in you by taking up the trek to the southernmost tip of South Andaman. The 1.5 km trek, though treacherous and covered with a dense forest cover, ends in a splendid view with the infinite waters spread in front of you and nothing but the horizon for company. The trek has benches en route and with adequate amounts of food and lots of water, you can make a picnic out of your day here.
