Biggest Question: How long to stay at Neil

Neil Island, known for its serene and tranquil atmosphere, doesn’t necessarily have a specific timeline for visitors to enjoy its beauty. It caters to a diverse range of travellers with varying time constraints and preferences. For those with limited time, a day trip from Havelock to Neil Island on their way back to Port Blair can be a good option. This allows them to experience the island’s unique charm in a short span.
