Coral Land of India – Andaman and Nicobar Islands

This post is dedicated to the corals of Neil Island which I call the coral land of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Officially, Lakshdweep is often cited as ‘The Coral capital of India’ but Andaman and Nicobar Islands also boast of beautiful corals all in and around the group of islands.Of all the islands and beaches that offer you spectacular views of the corals, Neil Island stands tall of all. It is said to have the loveliest corals in whole of Andamans.In various islands, you can go for Scuba Diving, Snorkeling or have a ride on a glass bottom boat.Glass bottom boats give you an opportunity to view the corals while sitting on the boat itself. The boat takes you over the corals and you can view them from the magnifying glass that is fitted at the bottom of the boat. Here is a pic of the boat:
