The only way to explore the island is by foot. Ross & Smith Islands is pretty small and there is no local transport to take tourists around the island. It takes just a couple of hours to explore the entire island. There is just one small shop on the island from where tourists can buy snacks and soft drinks. All the buildings are almost in ruins and represent British lifestyle. There is a graveyard and a small museum called Smritika, which has a collection of age old records on the island. It is managed by the Indian Navy. There is a church, now in ruins, and it represents British architecture. Boats are available from the Phoenix Bay jetty to Ross Island seven days a week.
