However, Amkunj Beach rose like a Phoenix after the disaster and transformed into a much better place. The uprooted trees were converted to benches and dustbins and now, it is one of the most popular recreational beaches in the Andaman Islands. With people coming over for strolls or a dip in the ocean, it is one of the liveliest beaches in the island which is enjoyed to the fullest by people of all ages.
