"Coral Island with Scuba Diving, Snorkelling"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jun 8, 2015
This is the island we see at the back of INR 20 rupees note. This island features the presence of live corals and also private players provide activities like scuba diving, snorkelling and fibre glass view of corals at additional cost. There are no ports available at North Bay fearing the construction materials will destroy the corals, so the big boats will stop around 500m before the coast and small boats will take us to the shore. A walk to the lighthouse will provide another beautiful view of the sea, though climbing inside the tower is restricted.

Scuba diving will cost you Rs. 5000 per person, snorkelling at Rs. 500/ person, and Coral view through fibre glass boat at Rs. 500/-. If you are interested in seeing coral, go for it, if you are interested in water sports, take it in elephant beach in Havelock island, as it is good and cheap as well.

"Under water activities and shopping for girls"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 21, 2015
Very beautiful beach with clear water and live corals. Adventure sports like scuba diving, snorkelling, sea walk are available there. Also glass bottoms boats are available there for those who are interested in seeing corals and fishes with different colours and shapes but not so interested in adventure. Few stalls are available for shopping, especially for girls. Light house is one more attraction there which can be seen on 20 Rs, note in Indian currency. Overall a beautiful place to remember always.

"Isolated Island, Useful only for few water ride"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Mar 27, 2015
You have to go North Bay Island from Rajiv Gandhi Sports Complex. It takes 500rs per person for boat. In this Island you have nothing to visit. They have Scuba diving, Snorkelling, Sea Walk and Glass boat facilities and except glass boat other facilities are available in Havelock. So I will suggest people not to waste money and time to visit this Island if you have short duration tour plan. This beach is open upto 3pm. After that all the ride used to close and people over there come back to Port Blair only few defence people stay there.
