About Sitapur Beach
At the tip of the island, about 5km from the market lies Sitapur beach or beach No. 5. Also known as the ‘sunrise beach’ it is best situated to enjoy the lovely sunrise early every morning. This postcard-perfect serene beach has two curved bays and clear blue waters which tempt one to go for a swim.
Due to its location, it is prone to higher tides and stronger currents, but swimming is possible at all times. All along the white stretches of soft sand, there is plenty of shade from the palm trees. At low tide, one can walk to the second bay and explore small caves or just enjoy the peacefulness of Sitapur beach. As the beach is never crowded there are no facilities yet, one can only buy fresh coconuts. There is a resort with a small restaurant 100 meters away in case you run out of water or get hungry.
How to Reach Sitapur Beach
To the far east on Neil Island lies Sitapur Beach. It is located about 5.5kms from the center (market) and 6kms from the jetty. The best way to reach depends on where you are traveling from and the time at hand. The roads in Neil are flat and easy to walk/cycle on. For a more convenient travel option, you can rent taxis, auto-rickshaws, or 2-wheelers (daily rentals only). You can find one at the jetty or by requesting it at your hotel.
