How to reach Little Andaman ( Hutbay ) as a tourist

1. Ships from Port Blair
2. Helicopter from Port Blair

Hutbay is the local town of Little Andaman Island and is the gateway to the Little Andaman. All Transportation from other Islands arrive at Hutbay. Unlike Port Blair this Island has no natural harbour and therefore an artificial break water is constructed to provide safe harbour for Ships. This break-water suffered severe damages in the 2004 Earthquake and Tsunami. It takes around 7 to 9 hours by ship from Port Blair to reach Hutbay harbour.

Demography

This island is inhabited mainly by the Bengali Settlers, primitive Onge tribes (At DugonCreek and near South Bay) and Nicobarese tribal families (At Harmander bay). Little Andaman was declared as a tribal reserve by Govt. of India in 1957. Most of the settlers however are settled in Little Andaman during 1977 to 1979. The December 2004 Tsunami destroyed the beautiful Island but the Island still retains its beauty.
