Neil Island is a tiny and beautiful gem, located 37 km south of the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. With unexplored coral reefs, magnificent bio-diversity, deserted sandy beaches and tropical forests and vegetation, this island is perfect for tourists seeking solitude. Due to its pleasant climate, Neil Island has a healthy cultivation of fruits and vegetables, earning it the epithet of vegetable bowl of the Andaman. The widest part of the island is about 5 km in length and it takes about two hours to see the island end to end.  For adrenaline junkies, water sport activities include jet-ski rides and scuba diving. For nature lovers, there is coral viewing in a glass bottom boat and natural rock formations on offer. For fishing enthusiasts, many organisations offer guided fishing tours with professional equipment.

The tourist spots you can enjoy are: Bharatpur Beach with coral reefs full of tropical fish; Sitapur Beach for its impressive sunrise; Laxmanpur Beach for its sunset view; Howrah Bridge for its natural rock formation accessible at low tide; Neil Kendra village for its curving, sandy bay dotted with boats and Sir Hugh Rose Island, also called Chotta Neil or Small Neil that is a sanctuary for turtles.
