Guitar Island, Another Hidden Beauty of Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Today, I will take on a virtual tour to Guitar Island – a lovely island near Long Island. This island is one of the most beautiful islands of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

You must have guessed by now that Guitar Island looks like a guitar! And it does. Though I could not take a picture depicting its shape but as you approach the island you realize why the island is called so.

The island is just about 10-15 mins ride away from Long Island jetty. One has to take the local dunghi to reach here. On getting near to the island, one can see the tip of the sandy beach that this place treasures.

The dunghi leaves you near the tip of the island shore. From there one can walk along the long, narrow, creamy beach. The water is as expected crystal clear and the silence that the air holds gives amazing peace to the mind.

Another interesting thing about this island is that like the Ross and Smith Islands, this island also gets connected with a neighboring island in times of low tide. But there is something more interesting here.

Ross and Smith Islands get connected with a sand bar while these two islands get connected with stones. If you look carefully at the picture below, you can actually see few stones between the two islands.

Another interesting thing is that a neighboring island which is right opposite to Guitar Island is called Small Guitar Island because it also looks like a guitar, smaller in size!

Isn’t it all wonderful and mystical!?

How to reach Guitar Island: Hire a dunghi from Long Island jetty. The ride is about for 20 mins. To best enjoy the beach, go in the morning; carry a hammock and a book and laze around the beach for hours.
