Kalighat Travel

Until the new road is finished, Kalighat, where the river becomes UN-navigable and the ferryboat from Mayabunder turns around, serves as the main entry point to North Andaman. A cluttered little bazaar unfolds from the top of the spillway, hemmed in by dense mangrove swamps. The one worthwhile place to visit in this area is Radhnagar, 10-km out of town and served by hourly buses, where there's a beautiful sandy beach backed by unspoilt forest where camping is feasible. Try to rent a cycle from one of the stalls in Kalighat though, as the beach is 2-km outside Radhnagar Bazaar, providing the nearest source of fresh water.

HOW TO GET THERE
In principle, four buses per day run north from Kalighat to Diglipur and the trip only takes 45 minutes. Heading south, the boat leaves at 5.00 am for Mayabunder.
