We did Snorkeling and glass bottom boat ride here. I would say one of the best moments of my visit when I did my snorkelling when I came across lot of corals and fishes of different sizes and colours. Just felt like watching discovery channel.... ultimate

If you happen to visit Havelock; which you will if you are visiting Neil Islands, you may find Neil to be a poor cousin of Havelock. For once, it does not have any beaches like the Radhanagar. Lakshman pur beach is good for an evening stroll, a sunset and an evening cup of tea; above this it is recommended to... More

My only regret of my entire andaman trip is not allocating more time to explore more of Neil island. If you liked snorkelling in Elephanta beach, snorkelling and glassbottom boat ride in Ramnagar beach in Neil Island will blow you mind. Do bargain and you can get prices for both the rides. The personel handing the boat ride and snorkelling... More

It has a population of not more than 4000, with only few mobile networks running (BSNL & Airtel), No internet..but trust me... More
