    The aesthetic Ross Island and Adventurous North Bay Island
    Ross Island and Coral Islands ( North Bay ) are the two worthy places to Visit in Andaman. Sadai Tours and Travels organised a trip to this place. Ross Island will give you glimpses of the historical events and is extremely peaceful. The beach is quiet and the island is full of Nature. You can see deer everywhere, these cute animals will welcome you in their way and make your experience warm and hearty. You will enjoy the lighthouse and the broken English Architecture is worth giving your attention. If you are interested in going to an enigmatic place full of Nature and tranquility North Bay is an adventurous place where you can do Scuba and experience other sports and adventure activities. If you want to experience what I have felt, reach out to Sadai Tours and Travels at 9531918600 ,9933202151 either of these Nos. They are affordable and trustworthy people who will give you the best experience of Andaman.

    Breathtaking
    A very clean and beautiful island... Kots of things to see... Although most of the buildings have collapsed but you can admire the way the island has been designed and how luxurious the life there was. Apart from that the history of Ross island is on display and a lot of peacocks and deers!

    One short trip to know the history
    Worth one short trip. Highlight for us was free roaming deer ..many of them. A guide lady knws each one like her pets by their names, and they follow her like pied pipers...they are though very gentle. A short tour to see the ruins can be done in the day time. Quaint place overall. Plastic, esp polythene prohibited. Ne sound and light show started at this island.

    Must Must Visit . The View from all the corners was Too Good
    Visit to This Island is Must. Light House view was SUPERB. Battery Operating car was good relief from walking. Reached there in the morning. Though Dun was at its best, it was breezy, so we Enjoyed. Top of it, DryFruit Kulfi & Coconut Water made us Very Comfortable Too. Don’t Miss 😊🙏🏻

    Short ferry ride
    I took a combo ferry to here and north bay island. Ross island(old name) was a haven for the british where they set up a posh community. The remains of buildings (water plant, military barracks, water plant, swimming pool and a church are all in ruins due to an earthquake plus the japenese destroyed it even more in ww2.0 There are tons of docile deer you can photograph and when you trek around the island the views are gorgeous of the ocean. A must is the trek to the lighthouse, here the surrounding views are just beautiful. An hr is enough ,maybe 2 but I was on a ferry schedule so I could have spent 30 more minutes. The cost was 800 rupees for both islands and return. Ross island by itself is 350 rupees

The island, rechristened from Ross to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, offers lovely views of the sea & has a golf cart which ferries you from the jetty to the peak & back.

A very beautiful island with a blend of serene environment and history. The island depicts the life of British pre independence and how the island acted as the British capital. A great place to visit.

Ross Island is beautiful and is a place where you can explore some beautiful colonial ruins and close quarter experience of the spotted dears.

But the biggest disappointment is the Buggy service inside the island run by some private buggy company. They charge Rs. 480 for a buggy for 2 pax and promise a 40 minute tour of the Island while they do a quick less than 10 minute trip without bothering to explain or show the island around. Also, they are not remorseful of cheating the tourists of poor service or for not keeping up with the promises.

I wish that Andaman State tourism department takes action against these private companies at Ross Island fooling the tourists.

Avoid the buggy at all costs if you don't want the trip to ruin your beautiful memories of Ross Island or Andaman.

Also, the entire round trip to Ross Island from Port Blair is about 1 hrs 15 minutes inclusive of the 1 hour Island trip and 15-20 minutes trip to and fro via ferry.

Ross Island offers a captivating journey into the pages of history, showcasing the colonial charm of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The well-preserved ruins of British-era structures, surrounded by lush greenery and pristine beaches, create a unique and immersive experience. The haunting beauty of the abandoned church and the eerie yet enchanting ambiance make it a must-visit for history enthusiasts. The island's serene surroundings and glimpses of diverse wildlife add to its allure, making Ross Island a fascinating blend of history and natural beauty.

The waters are amazing and there is rich history in this Island. The ruins depict how the British ruled our place and people harshly but their own life was so comfortable.
