A place of unparalleled natural beauty, away from all traces of civilization. The only time humans venture here is in the daily morning boats that leave from Wandoor jetty, operated and under the care of the Forest department. Carrying plastics is strictly prohibited and so is disturbing the flora and fauna. Mangroves abound the entire area. Glass bottomed boats provide views of the coral reefs.

Great Corel beach. Must visit place if you are going to Andaman. Government is very strict on plastic waste so they don't allow anything of plastic there. They don't have any breakfast or snack place so better you have breakfast and visit there. For water, they will provide returnable water containers for 500 rupee deposit.
