Activities on Neil Island
There are plenty of options of how one can spend their time on Neil. If you do get tired of lying on the beach or you have finished your book, there are some activities you can choose from. There are two dive shops on the island that operate seasonally – India Scuba Explorers and Dive India. One can also rent snorkel equipment from most beach resorts and go snorkeling. Otherwise, good old swimming is always an option.
Robin’s Sports Fishing offers game fishing opportunities and a local business offers activities like jungle trekking, free diving options etc. Head to their shop near Neil Kendra, on the road that leads to the Lakshmanpur beach.
Cycling in Neil Island is highly recommended – you can hire bicycles from most resorts or even from small rental shops all over the island. If you have a couple of weeks on hand, maybe even start to learn the basics of tabla, a traditional Indian musical instrument!
