Shaheed Dweep(Neil Island) Stunning 37kms 1

Shaheed Dweep (Neil island) is a tiny but beautiful island located 37 Kms. to the south of the Andaman Islands. We arrived at this unique and rustic charming island by afternoon, First time in my life I was seeing such clear water that seashore was visible. Till now, I can feel that soothing sea wind and breath in that ultraquiet air.

With unexplored coral reefs, brilliant bio-diversity, white sandy beaches, and tropical forest and vegetation, it is one of the hot tourist spots in the Andamans.

Shaheed Dweep is known as the ‘vegetable bowl’ of the Andamans.

The settlers named the beaches after mythical characters of the epic Ramayana (Bharatpur, Laxmanpur, Sitapur, Ramnagar, etc.) The island, with its very relaxed vibes and long, deserted beaches is a place to chill out after the “bustle” of Havelock.

Long stretches of white sand , turquoise blue water, and lush green forest are visible as far as our sight reached

Type of erosional landform is the sea arch, which forms as the result of different rates of erosion typically due to the varied resistance of bedrock. These archways may have an arcuate or rectangular shape, with the opening extending below water level. The height of an arch can be up to tens of meters above sea level.

Natural Bridge lovingly called: Howrah Bridge.

It is common for sea arches to form when a rocky coast undergoes erosion and a wave-cut platform develops. Continued erosion can result in the collapse of an arch, leaving an isolated sea stack on the platform. Still further erosion removes the stack, and eventually, only the wave-cut platform remains adjacent to the eroding coastal cliff.

The approach to the natural bridge is through a small hamlet, lined by tall mahua trees. The best time to visit the place is at the low tides otherwise one may get stuck if the time is not noted on. The bridge accompanied to the beach is termed as the dead coral beach. The beach is mainly suited for trekking purpose not for swimming.

The beach is occupied with many shops selling souvenirs like t-shirt, seashells and foods, tender coconut and fruit near the place. Perhaps a lifetime experience for the youth to hope around to its exotic flavor.

Ramnagar Beach

One of the most underrated beaches in all of Neil Island, the Ramnagar Beach with its white sand shore, numerous trees (providing plenty of shade), and amazing coral reefs is everything glorious!
