“Worth exploring”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

It is difficult to reach this place as it involves walking over uneven hard corals and stones but once you reach there it’s worth of the difficulties. You will see a mother colony of hard corals, few of them alive and visible due to the clarity of water. I was fortunate to spend couple of hours looking for soft-coral colonies, star fish, sea cucumbers and different colors of corals. This natural bridge will appear to be quiet fascinating for photographers.
Tips : You have to start hiking to this place only after low-tide starts, that is after 11 am in the morning. The coral beach is inaccessible during high-tides i.e, morning and port afternoon.

“A different place to visit”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

The natural bridge is a rock formation. This is a beach where you can see no sand and full of dead corals. Then, you witness a rock formation, which looks like a bridge. The beach is flooded with water for several feet in the evening and nights, and water resides in afternoons and makes way to see the bridge like formation. We also witnessed star fish in close quarters.

“Howrah bridge a.k.a. Natural Bridge”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

A really calm beach with low tides in the morning. Walking over the dead corals could be challenging if one is not wearing good footwear. Closed shoes are recommended as the corals could cut the skin if you miss a step. During the low tide one can actually walk under the stone bridge. A day trip is recommended!

“Howrah bridge Over sea at Neil Island”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

It is beautiful with sea-green water, with exotic debris of stone looked like a cave.
The tree added more beauty to the seashore with green touch.
