About Lakshmanpur Beach
Long stretches of white sand, turquoise blue crystal waters, and lush green forest. Beach No. 1 is postcard-perfect with old fallen trees being slowly washed away by the waves. Swimming is best at high tide, but also possible during low tide. Take care of the corals and few rocks underneath the water surface. Beach No. 1 offers the best snorkelling points on the islands with colourful fish and some corals. If lucky there is a high chance to spot a dugong (sea cow) feeding on seagrass.
The beach is also known as the sunset point of the island so it can get pretty crowded at sunset with loads of tourists coming to snap a photo or two before they head for dinner. At all other times, the beautiful serene beach is almost deserted so you can always find a special place to have this gem all by yourself.
How to Reach Lakshmanpur Beach?
To the far west on Neil Island lies Lakshmanpur Beach AKA Beach number 1. It is located about 2kms from the centre (market) and 2.5kms from the jetty. The best way to reach depends on where you are travelling 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.
Note that to find the entrance to the beach, you must travel a few metres on a narrow mud road which begins on a small turning where the tarred road ends.
