IF you have been to Radhanagar beach , then going to this island is a waste of time and money. Instead plan for north andamans eg Ross and Smith Islands etc

lack of clean toilet facilities. crowding at the ferry.the launch ride was great,but the to and fro journey at the ferry could be made more smooth and hassle free. as we were required to change transport twice whereas some vip tourists made it right up to the boat.

If you have enough time to spare you can stay here for a day. Not much to do except visiting the natural bridge and some water sports. We went for snorkelling and it was quite fun.

Another beautiful Island after Havelock.Now with Makruzz doing single sailing, it is not possible to go to Neil Island from Havelock and return on the the same day. However one can take coastal cruise from Havelock.Stay one night in Neil and proceed to Port Blair.

This small island is a wonder. The beautiful beaches of Bharatpur, Lakshmanpur and Sitapur are worth seeing. So is the natural formation. However, a word of caution, the access to this natural wonder is really tough.

It's secluded and quiet. Good if you are looking for non touristy beauty. The water is amazingly clear and the marine life is amazing. All you need to do look down from the deck to spot exotic fish. But the beaches don't have life guards, so be careful if you are to go exploring on your own.

Loved being at Niel.. stayed in Seashell which is also great. less crowded is the reason of making this place great to visit. Not much options are there.. there are three places to visit.
