White Surf Falls is truly a tropical waterfall. Tucked amidst dense tropical rainforests, this waterfall is situated about 7 kms from the Hut Bay town in Little Andaman.
One of the main tourist attractions of Little Andaman, the White Surf Falls used to be a huge waterfall before the tsunami hit Little Andaman.
It is beautiful even today, but locals say that the waterfall broke into two smaller ones post the tsunami earthquake and doesn’t carry as much water as earlier.
All said, I did visit this place earlier this year during my backpacking trip to the Andaman Islands and I was very happy with what I saw.
The entire place was clean and dressed in lovely green. There were hardly any people around and the walk through the deep woods to the waterfall was a pleasurable experience. The place was filled with sounds of nature and it felt as if nature existed in its purest form here.
I even trekked to the top of this waterfall through slippery terrain to reach a small pool, where the stream settled before falling down as a waterfall. During my trek to the falls, I noticed signboards that said “Watch out for the crocodile”, but as mu luck would have it, I didn’t see any of these amazing creatures.
