Nearby hotels 

Being a very remote destination just like any other island in the North and Middle Andaman Island, you should not look for any luxurious stay. Still growing to gain popularity, Mayabunder has minimum tourist flow at present. The limited number of accommodations available here has limited amenities. So you should not expect services like television in rooms, room service, wifi connection, etc. while staying here. The hotel properties in Mayabunder are very basic, hygienic, and a few provide sea view. Some of the best places to stay here are mentioned below:

  • Blue Bird Resort
  • Hotel Aashna
  • RG Hotel
  • Hotel Landfall
  • Sea and Sand 
  • APWD Guest House 

Nearby restaurants 

The local folks of Mayabunder run small food stalls, dhabas or canteens. The eateries are nearby the tourist spots and the main market area. The best restaurants are as follows:

  • Hotel Sea and Sand
  • Carlo Restaurant & Bar
  • Hotel Payal Garden & Bar
  • JM Baxi Resort & Restaurant

How to reach

The origin to start your journey to Mayabunder via any mode of transport is the capital of Andaman Island- Port Blair. Reaching there is quite easy. You can opt for any mode as per your comfort and budget. You can choose from direct government-operated buses, buses run by the private sector, direct government ferry from Port Blair and a combination of ferry and bus, and private cabs.

You can reach Mayabunder via buses from Port Blair that head daily on Andaman Trunk Road via Rangat and Baratang. The buses leave from Port Blair at around 4 am and are available till 11 am. It is a tiring nine to ten hours’ bumpy ride through parts of dense jungle and with ferries linking the islands. On the ATR, you may also spot the Jarawa tribe. But you should not click their photographs, give them anything or communicate with them in any way. Such behavior is legally punishable. 

Taking a ferry from Phoenix Bay Jetty in Port Blair to Diglipur (via Mayabunder) is a more comfortable option. Depending on the weather conditions, the journey takes about eight to nine hours. There are two weekly ferries that leave on Monday and on Friday, but you should check the timetables online or at the ticket counter as they do often change. Before getting into the queue, don’t forget the photocopies of your permit, visa, and passport. Mayabunder has the facility of harboring passenger ships from the mainland.
