Ross Island is 15 minutes ferry ride away from Port Blair. This beautiful and peaceful island is full of historic structures and attracts huge number of tourists and historians which at the first sight seems like a abandoned place. You will be mesmerized by the scenic beauty and greeted by deer and peacocks and rabbits. The food here regional influence and hence a must try.
You can see remnants of an opulent past in the ruins of the church, swimming pool and the chief commissioner's residence with its huge gardens and grand ballrooms which were home to Britishers for 80 years. And now Indian Navy manage a cemetery and a small museum. You can enjoy a quaint walk and some quality time with your loved ones. If you want to enjoy more time on this island than usually planned by the ferry drivers, ask them to pick you up while going back to Port Blair from North Bay Island.
