You reach here and realize you are not alone the beach is small. Very pebbly. No sand so don't expect beach leisure or sunbathing. It's a commercial under water activity center. Scuba diving is superb here as cheap as rs 2500 to 3500 I think cheapest in whole South East Asia. With proper safety measures and good gears and trainers... More

These... More

It is only for water sports activity and very crowded. My son enjoyed snorkelling thoroughly but I hear the water sports activity is much better at Havelock (though I didnt try).

Opposite Port Blair,this island is great for outdoor activities. Snorkeling,trekking and jungle watching is exciting. Prior permission from forest department, just as for every island here,is required to visit it.
