The Neil is a tiny island with a few beautiful coral beaches, blue sea, and unspoiled nature. The highlights are the sunset from Laxmanpur beach, the natural coral arch formation, and the glass boat ride and scuba/ snorkeling at the Bharatpur beach. At the least, one night stay is highly recommended.

This Place is very less crowded compared to Havelock but the water quality here was much better. There are 2 main beaches here Sitapur and laxmanpur. Both are unique in their own ways. Lakshmanpur beach, Sitapur Beach are breath taking. Sunset point is a must if you are staying. White sand and blue water......

Awesome the one hour journey from Hevlok island to Neil island and more amazing the stay at this beautiful secluded place. Those who wish to stay in the lap of Mother Nature will definitely like this small island . Natural coral bridge is a perfect place to explore marine life but you have to visit during low tide time.

Neil Island offers something different. It is more calm and less crowded. Beaches are more shallow. It has 3 main sea shores. It is much more cheaper and also it supplies organic vegetables to Andaman Islands. No phone network except BSNL.

The moment you land in Neil island - you are mesmerised by beauty of landscape, water colours, nice people. You can cover the whole island on a bike. It's very safe & people are very helpful. Not too commercialised & hence we would rate this as best part of our Andaman trip. Cheers,

Neil Island is a place where you can relax and sun bath. Can't do out in Beach without proper gear. Don't miss natural bridge. If you are interested to know more about marine life and look for variety of exotic marine life, then hire a guide. He will take 50 or 100 rupees but show you around and most importantly... More
