There is no beach at Diglipur as it is just a sleepy town of North Andaman. The beach is located 17 Kms away from Diglipur & called Kalipur Beach. It's majorly rocky & has grey sand & not so great. But the turtle nesting activity during Nov-Feb months makes it awesome. Visitors walk along leisurely at midnight in search of these turtles. It's a safe place even at that odd hour. Star gazing is another attraction & so is the nearby Turtle Hatchery set up on the beach itself.

In the name of turtle, we wasted 3 days there. Ross and Smith is worth a visit.But Diglipur is waste of time and money.

As just a beach, the Kalipur beach is and average beach. And it is not a very clean beach, either. But the highlight has to be the opportunity to see turtle nesting We were there in the last week of December, which is apparently the beginning of the nesting season. We (along with several other people residing at the Pristine Beach Resort) went down to the beach at 8PM and sat in await for turtle(s) to come ashore to lay the eggs. Finally around 10:30PM, an Olive Ridley turtle came ashore, found a spot and started laying her eggs. It was a really rewarding experience to see the turtle lay the eggs, cover up the pit without a trace and head back to the water. What was very disturbing, though, was the insensitivity of many of the people watching this. People were obsessed with getting ''selfies'', and getting close-up photos/videos of the actions; thereby leading to getting too close to the turtle, and using camera flashes and flashlights and generally creating a commotion. I do wish future tourists get to see the sight of turtle nesting, but also request all to be a bit more considerate and give some room and space to the turtles..

Diglipur itself has no beach; this review pertains to Kalipur beach, about a half hour away by road, past Aerial bay, accessible by auto or local bus. Kalipur beach is a lovely, uncrowded, isolated beach, extending for miles and miles, home to nesting sea turtles, and occasional stands of mangroves trying to reclaim the land from the sea. Lots of tide pools and exposed corals during low tide.
