The Glorious Bharatpur Beach
The Bharatpur Beach is considered the best beach of Neil Island and located only half kilometer away from the jetty. The white sand beach seems like a beautiful painting with calm shallow water lapping the shore. It’s actually a lagoon making it safe for bathing and swimming even for kids as there are no chances of drowning.
You can relax on the beach or take part in exciting water sport activities such as jet skiing and speed boat ride. We also recommend scuba diving or snorkeling in the water as you can see the colourful corals and marine life up from close. Glass bottom boats are also available if you want to enjoy the corals and marine life without getting wet!
You can spend hours watching the different shades of blue the water adopts as the day passes by!
Magnificent Sitapur Beach
Sitapur Beach is another popular destination on Neil Island. Located around 5 km from the market, it is also known as the ‘Sunrise Beach’ for the lovely views it offers during sunrise. You should get to the beach at dawn to experience the fully glory!
The beach gets both high tide and low tide with some current but swimming is always considered safe. The pristine beach is gifted with two curved bays with deep blue water making it ideal for a dip. You can also walk over to the second bay during low tide and explore some of the small caves there.
Sitapur beach is also great for relaxing in the cool shades of the palm trees. The beach doesn’t have any facility and the only thing available is some refreshing coconuts!
World Famous Laxmanpur Beach
Laxmanpur Beach is very popular though you won’t find many tourists here. The beautiful expansive beach is perfect for swimming as the water is calm and peaceful. You can spend hours just relaxing and playing in the water or watching the clouds pass by the endless horizon.
The beach is situated 2 km from the Neil jetty in Laxmanpur village. It is known for its white shell sand and crystal blue water with dead corals. You can also go snorkeling in the water to get close view of the fishes and corals.
The beach appears most beautiful during the sunset when you can enjoy a quick stroll in the backdrop of the setting sun.
