Neil Island was far from the rush of the city. Its a small island. But the beaches were not upto the mark.They were untidy. You cant even think of spending your day at any of the beach. atmosphere was soothing. Spending a full day at Neil Island is not a great idea.

But the main reason... More

If you want to chill and relax this is the right place to do. Small island with very very clear water. Do snorkeling, Scuba here (Avoid scuba on Havelock) you will see lot of colorful fishes. Lot of water sport. But beware of Dogs in this island.

The coral on the beaches made it difficult to enjoy the water but the plethora of marine life along the shores made for pleasant naturalism.

Go there for one night stay, choose Seashell. It'll be memorable.. Water is the clearest in Andamans (better than Havelock) and coral life is out of the documentaries on TV

Visited Neil Islands during the last week of December 2013.The natural beauty of the place is simply amazing. Here you can escape from the hustle and bustle of Havelock but at the same time get a chance to enjoy one of the best beaches that Andaman has to offer. Ideal for people of all age group,however it would be specially... More
