Wandoor


Overview

Wandoor is a small village near the southern tip of South Andaman. Wandoor has some beaches and is a nice place to relax, but it is more known as the gateway to the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park.The Wandoor National Park comprises about 12 islands and is located about 30 km southwest of Port Blair-the capital city of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Comprising of 300 islands, this archipelago is amongst the most far-flung regions of India. Labyrinthine Island groups as they are aptly named because of the channels weaving around and forming a maze- they are home to India's best marine parks.

Jollybuoy - Of all these islands Jollybuoy, which, lies towards the middle of the park, is most famous. The biggest attraction of this island is a sandy beach on its northern end. This beach is encircled by a reef, which is exposed during low tide.


Redskin Island - Redskin Island is another important island, which is inhabited by the deer, which were brought here by the British. Approachable by boats that land in sandy coves on either side of the island, Redskin has a large area with numerous caves along the northern cliffs. The interior is still quite densely wooded with mangrove stands along the eastern and southern creeks.


At Jolly Buoy you will get to see corals (red, blue, sponge corals etc). Also you will be able to see life within these corals (particularly zebra fish). There is another island called Red Skin Island. Both Jolly Buoy and Red Skin remains open for tourists for 6 months alternately.
