This is the place where you look at the scene that is printed at the back of 20 INR note. Well, if you ask me, I would say there is no point in going there, coz you cant see that unless you're away from it.

The island and the light house is at the backside of INR 20, and hence calls for a visit. However, there is nothing super about the island itself as the island is restricted and you cannot roam around. The light house is the only place where people can go to with nominal tickets. You get the ferry tickets for INR... More

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.

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
