It is an ideal beach for scuba diving.There is no need to do glass boat ride if planning for scuba diving or snorkelling.There is also no need to do snorkelling if doing scuba diving.The charges at jetty point are discounted.

This is really a waste of money. From Abeerdeen jetty u will be charged some 500 Rs. for this waste of time island. Good if u want to see corals only. Beauty of beach was average. Not good for bathing in beach. I do not recommend this.

the island is accessible by glass bottom boats which was a nice experience. scuba, snorkeling and sea walk are the activities available. we had booked sea walk but couldn't do that due to some VIP visit but we did snorkeling which was quite good. this island had several fast food joints and was far better for foodies when compared to...

We were taken to this island to do Under Sea Water walk, which was indeed once in a lifetime experience. The island itself is restricted and only a patch of it is accessible and require one to take a 10Rs ticket to enter. Inside you have various eateries and shacks which provide basic food and has a bunch of shops... More

North Bay is about 20-30 mins boat ride from the Jetty at Port Blair. Most of the island is a private property and is off limits for tourists. you get about half a km stretch of land where the boat operators organize snorkelling, glass bottom boat ride, scuba diving and sea walking. There is no beach as such were you... More

This is one of the key place for water sports activities, snorkeling, glass bottom boat ride and scuba diving. However, the infrastructure of the place is very poor. There’s no proper waiting or changing room. The toilet is far away and unclean. The staff handling the water sport activities doesn’t seem to be well trained. The gears provided are dirty... More
