HolidayIQ Reviewer sweetie Vino shares, “This is the island we notice behind a 20 rupees currency 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/-Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sumeet Samat adds, “The water was absolutely clear and gave us complete visibility of the floor. You can take a ride in the glass bottom boats here and they will take you a little inside the sea to see the corals - yes the water is that clear. If you have seen the corals either during scuba diving or snorkelling, then the glass bottom boat option is not that attractive - well, if you can see the corals up, close and personal, why see it from outside the water. You can take a nice walk on the beach and admire the shells as well as the hermit crabs that roam around.Read Full Review
