How to reach

Jogger’s Park is a small detour from other places to see in Port Blair. It is perched on top of one of the highest points in the capital town. It is located at a distance of nearly two kilometers from the city center and three kilometers from the Veer Savarkar International Airport. One can easily reach there by renting a cab, auto (tuk-tuk), or two-wheeler (daily rental). The park has proper parking space as well.

Being an island, ferry services are the lifeline in the Andaman Islands but there are so many places that can be reached via road. You can book a cab for a day or your whole vacation to go and explore the unexplored. That is why, cab services are in high demand here. During the peak season, it becomes very difficult to get a vehicle as there is a huge shortage. Thus, it is always preferable to get your cab booking done in advance in order to avoid the last-minute hassle. Moreover, you should be extra cautious when selecting vehicle services in the islands as there is poor or no connectivity of the mobile network and it may become tough for you to connect with a cab driver during your holidays. No app-based taxi services are available in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and thus, you have to rely on private cabs.

Andaman Island Travels is the most trusted name in the islands. The drivers are polite and take care of you in an absolutely professional manner.
