South Bay Lighthouse and Beach , Little Andaman

South Bay Lighthouse

The South bay Light house is situated at southernmost tip of Little Andaman (South Bay : Lat: 10.512100, Long: 92.504328), 14 kilometres away from Hutbay passing through Harmender Bay (Nicobari Settlement). There is only a Jungle trail to reach South Bay and due to rains it is always filled with mud. It is possible to reach the lighthouse in a bike but off-roading jeeps are preferred. The shore line of South bay is shallow and makes it good for bathing.


The South Bay light house is a 46 metre high cylindrical tower commisioned in 1986 and is the tallest light house of the Islands. A vacated Onge Tribal settlement  is not far away from the Light house.
