About The Natural Rock Formation
Neil’s famous attraction is a natural bridge formation locally known as the Howrah Bridge. To see this natural “wonder” one has to visit the rocky beach No. 2 at low tide when it is possible to walk on its dead corals and rocks to reach the attraction.
For some, the sea creatures seen here could also be interesting. You can find small fish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, starfish, and on some parts you can even see colorful corals are slowly growing again. The rocky surface can get slippery at some parts and many are sharp so one must take care while walking.
In the late afternoons, the place can get crowded with tourists as it is the last stop before heading to the sunset point. Check the tide timings before you plan a trip here!
How to Reach The Natural Rock Formation?
Natural Bridge at Beach Number 2 needs to be reached by road and then requires one to walk a few 100 metres on a rocky path. The entrance to the beach lies about 2.5 km from the jetty and 2kms from the market area (centre of town).
You can rent a taxi, auto-rickshaw, bicycle or 2-wheeler to get here. When at the main entrance, you must park your vehicle outside, climb a rocky path, and then walk a few metres through the craggy shores to be able to see the natural bridge.
Go during low tide and wear comfortable footwear.
