The corals are lovely with amazing colored fishes. Its the same island that is visible on the reverse of INR20/- note. The Light house is a 5min walk from the scuba spot. There is a eatery and a few souvenir shops.

The scuba experience was good. The restaurants are very bad. The shopping is no different than normal places in the portblair.

scuba diving, glass boat, snorkeling are some of the activities done at this location. 45min scuba dive costs about 4k normally but during off season its for 3k .

Go for sea walking and scuba and if it's your first time, your life will be changed for ever! I got my taste of adventure here at North Bay and look forward to much more! The water sports i.e. banana boat, jetty, sofa ride are also okay.

This Island is very famous for its picture on Rs.20 note but Glass bottom boat and scuba diving is also available. In fact scuba here is good as water is really clean. One can trek upto watch tower at the top to enjoy some breathtaking views

Must do scuba diving with Infinity Scuba. LA life time experience. Also must visit Light house. The same light house picture is printed on the Rs. 20 note. Beautiful views from the light house and clean beach. Can buy sea shells & other souvenirs from here, quite reasonable. Shopping from the city & govt. shops is expensive.
