How to reach Turtle Resort Kalipur

Turtle Resort Kalipur is located in Kalipur, near famous turtle nesting Kalipur beach, 16 km away from Diglipur. Click here to display map

If you arrive by bus from the south, the bus will drop you in Diglipur city center, market area. Public bus is the cheapest and reasonably convenient way to reach Turtle Resort in Kalipur from Diglipur. Buses leave every hour from Diglipur central market area. Please note that the last bus leaves at 7pm.

Tuk-tuks (auto rickshaws) and taxis are also available from Diglipur city center, they cost 300-600 INR one way, depending on you bargaining skills. We are in the remote area so getting a shared transport, other than bus, is difficult here. You will need to rent your tuk-tuk or taxi just for you.

If you arrive by ship, you will disembark at Aerial Bay jetty. Same Diglipur - Kalipur bus passes by Aerial Bay and will pick you up with no problem. Tuk-tuks and taxis  meet arriving ships. It is only 8 km, e.g. half the distance from Aerial Bay to reach Turtle Resort Kalipur.


Why is Turtle Resort Diglipur featured on Eagle Fly Free?

While we rarely pick and recommend specific accommodations or restaurants, I believe Turtle resort deserves it. We have spent here 5 nights and it is the best value for money accommodation in 500km radius. I guess it would be worth 3***+ rating. North Andaman is worth spending some time, 5 nights are just OK to explore the area. Good sleep and good food is provided at best prices by Turtle Resort here.

  1. Good quality accommodation near Kalipur beach with reasonable restaurant. Order you food ahead, this is pretty remote location. Good base for turtle nesting, saddle peak trek as well as Ross and Smith twin island.
