Neil Island is one of the most beautiful islands in Andamans. Some think it is even more beautiful and pristine than Havelock.
In my opinion, both of these very famous tourist destinations of Andamans, have their own charm.

Neil Island offers many views to the visitors. One of these is its Natural rock Formation view.

To experience the best view of the rocks, it is advisable to go during low tide. I couldn’t go during low tide but I also didn’t want to miss seeing it, so I headed in high tide itself.
|If you don’t enjoy the rocks, you would still love this place for its sheer natural beauty|
I am sure the view would be even more spectacular in low tide.
During low tide, the sea retreats back giving a splendid view of the rocks spread across the bridge. I also have to tell you that this bridge that you see in the picture below is locally called Howrah bridge!

On the way to the rock formation area, one walks along the sea on the rocky beach enjoying the cool breeze of the open sea on one hand and lush green light forests on the other.

How to reach: The rock formation area is about 15-20 mins walk away from Laxmanpur beach 2. There are daily boats that connect Neil Island with Havelock Island and Port Blair.
