About Neil Island
40km northeast from Port Blair, with green surroundings of paddy fields, banana plantations and tropical trees dwells a small island called Neil. This town offers a very relaxed atmosphere for travellers and is famous for its slow, laid back vibe, the friendly people and its delicious food. People come here mainly to chill out and enjoy the quietness of the place, as there is not much to do but this. The beaches here are not as picture perfect as on the neighbouring Havelock Island, but they are secluded, great for snorkelling and boast of beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This is definitely the place to relax on the beach and forget about time passing by. A hammock, a book and some mosquito repellent are all you need during your stay here.
