Little Andaman

An Island in Andaman District

Little Andaman Island has a beautiful beach at Butler Bay and an attractive waterfall, Panchavati. Little Andaman is famous for its Red Oil Palm plantation run by ANIFPDCL. This plantation is spread over an area of 1593 hectares. Tourists can visit the plantation and the factory run by the ANIFPDCL. They can observe the different stages of oil palm fruit production and oil extraction here.

There are many sandy beaches all along the coastline of the island. Tourists can have an excellent view over the break water at Hut Bay. Around 11 km north of Hut Bay is Netaji Nagar Beach, famous for its white sands.

Boats connect Port Blair with Hut Bay once or twice a week. Occasionally, faster boats are available which ply to and fro on the same day itself. It takes about 8 hrs journey by sea from Port Blair towards the south.

Little Andaman is the vegetable bowl for the Nicobar group of islands and is inhabited by the Onge tribes Nicobarese, and settlers from East Pakistan and other places.
