Located in Ritchie's Archipelago, Neil Island is about 36 kms from the coast of Port Blair. The island has beautiful white sand beaches and coconut trees above land, and underwater, it offers craggy rock formations and clear blue water for divers to enjoy. With many unexplored reefs and pristine sea bed, you'll be treated to sights of rare marine creatures, schools of tropical fish and hopefully, sea turtles.
