Why to visit Rutland Island
The scenic Rutland Island, off the coast of India, south of Port Blair, is a haven for Thalassophiles, or sea lovers. Rutland Island is only 110 square kilometres in size and is home to around 350 Jangil Tribe members. That's all there is to it. There are fewer people here than in a city auditorium.
But, despite its small size and inhabitants, the island makes up for it with breathtaking vistas of beaches and abundant marine life that are well worth a visit! Chidiya Tapu is a great place to go fishing and see the Cinque Islands' coral reefs. At the beaches, you may have an exciting open-sea diving experience while simultaneously taking a dip or snorkelling.
One of the greatest possibilities is to take a day trip from Port Blair or Havelock Island to Rutland Island. If you wish to get certified in open-water diving, you can stay longer, but keep in mind that there is no phone service or electricity on the island, and food is scarce. Accommodation is few as well, with only one resort consisting of bamboo huts that is adequately outfitted for a nice stay. If you're travelling in a group, you can opt for a day trip package to ensure that everything is taken care of.
