Went around all the beaches. Bharatpur beach is nice but water activities are much better in Havelock. Laxmanpur beach can be visited for sunset.

All 3 beaches on this island is a great place to visit. We visited this on beginning of summer. So it was little hotter. But we had a nice family time together.

Reached Neil from Portblair by Coastal Cruises in the morning. The booked cab driver told me that he will take time to reach the jetty and asked me to wait. In the meantime one local person approached me and asked me if I would like to be dropped. He asked Rs 200/- which was reasonable. As we picked up our... More

The thunder of Andaman is stolen by Havelock, but Neil is more beautiful. Its much less commercial, extremely quiet and has pristine beaches. Yes, you wont get many options to eat out, or dive shops at every corner, but Bharatpur (you can go in as far as 500 mts into the sea) & Laxmanpur beaches are breathtaking. Do not skip.

If you are in Andaman, try to plan a day trip to Neil. Natural Coral bridge is a must place to visit and Lakshmanpur beach for the sunset.

Among the popular islands in Andaman this one is the most beautiful one. It is the habitat of beautiful corals and fishes. A must visit place is natural coral bridge and sunset at Lakshmanpur beach.
