NEIL ISLAND

:: Destination Overview ::

The best beaches to visit on Neil Island are – Bharatpur, Sitapur & Lakshmanpur. Among them, Sitapur is considered to be the best. Neil Island is being considered as another ‘Havelock in the making’. But we really leave it up to you to decide. It has a small village life with most people occupied with Agriculture or tourism activities. Neil Island is yet another place which is considered ideal for eco-tourism owing to the lush green paddy fields, banana plantations and tropical trees. Sporting activities are picking up pace at Neil Island with a dive center coming up soon. There are a number of private resorts opening up, but for now the Hawabill Nest is the most popular one. It belongs to the Govt. of India.

DIGLIPUR

:: Destination Overview ::

Diglipur is the largest and farthest town located in the North Andaman Islands. It is more like a division or a county. It is 300 kms by road and 180 kms by sea from Port Blair which means a road trip might take the whole day. Yet, the beauty of Diglipur makes the escapade from the daily routines to this pristine place a worthy holiday.

There are a whole lot of places to explore in and around Diglipur.Andaman Islands have only one river ‘Kalpong’ which flows through Diglipur and sustains the first and the only hydroelectricity project of the archipelago. The twin islands called Ross & Smith Islands, connected by a thin sand bar, are just a half an hour journey from Diglipur. A fascinating and must visit place, Ross & Smith and the Ramnagar Beach are famous for turtle nesting during December to February.

Then we have the Diglipur National Park also known as the Saddle Peak National Park which is a dense tropical forest with a huge population of exquisite trees (sandal being one of them). The park also offers trekking and hiking options. The Saddle Peak is the highest point in the Gulf of Bengal. At 732 m (4500 feet), it provides an excellent aerial view of Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

   

:: PLACES TO VISIT IN DIGLIPUR ::

  • Ramnagar Beach (Ramnagar Beach of Andaman and Nicobar Islands is situated in the northern region at the Diglipur Island and is accessible through water and road. The sandy beach is only 15 kilometres away from Kalighat. The beach is surrounded by palm and coconut trees and other coastal shrubs.)
  • Ross & Smith Island (Ross and Smith Island (Smith and Ross) are about 25 minutes by boat from Diglipur in North Andaman Islands (Andaman & Nicobar). Though these are commonly referred to as twin islands, they are actually a single island separated by a sandy stretch which makes it appear like two separate islands.)
