this island is just at a few km. from Port Blair city and you can reach here by govt. ferries / private catamarans / cruises too and also by sea plane (subject to availability), but this experience is awesome. people must and should visit this island in an inclusion to their tour itinerary. accommodation available here.

Neil is like that younger brother of Havelock, waiting to be recognised. There's been a multifold increase in number tourists to this place since the last time I visited it three years back. The water is bluer, the fishes more colourful, and the reefs too seem to have some colour. Accomodation can be an issue as most places are not... More

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at Neil Island. We got a scooty at our bay and enjoyed the small island to the fullest. People there at Neil are so nice, honest and helpful. This place certainly demands more than once visit. However, Havelock and Neil are two completely different islands. In terms of natural beauty Neil is far... More

Mostly people go straight to Havelock. Take 3 days before and stay on Neil. Food and accomodation is better and cheaper. Less people, enjoy sunset and sunrise with coconut in your hand. On main street take bike and have ride. Dont be afraid of local dogs. They are friendly and sometimes were bodyguard for me!

Visiting neil with family including kids is still memorable due to the collection of shell done by us just for the sake of it ... Its a place which still not yet explored and being small enough and quiet for someone who likes to doze off on beaches ... Have a personal snorkelling set while heading for it .... Be... More

Beaches are very nice than Havelock, but there is no proper hotel to have the food. My advice is not to opt for a stay in Neil instead reach Neil by morning and return in the evening.
