Located near Port Blair, North Bay is a secluded island which spans over a relatively medium area and is generally visited by tourists on a day trip to both Ross Island and North Bay.
Although the island doesn’t offer much sightseeing options for visitors other than the shoreline and jungle, it is one of the best places for Water Sports in Andaman Islands.
The island is surrounded by crystal clear cyan colored water with a shallow shoreline that offers a magnificent underwater view. The beach is white sand and shaded by dense tropical trees with hints of huts and wooden benches to set the mood.
Make sure not to get in the water without a guide as it is not usually allowed. This was done to protect the visitors from unwanted sea dwellers and protect the coral from interference.
The island is most famous for water sports and features a plethora of vendors with great pricing structure- if you are looking for some adventure and aren't afraid to get wet.
Soon as you reach the beach and look around, you’ll find tons of small counters for Scuba, Snorkeling and lots of other activities.
The underwater biodiversity of North Bay is unmatched and boasts some of the most healthy coral settlements housing lots of fish species, some of which are not found anywhere else in Andaman.
The large coral belts under the 2 KM of radius near the isle is filled with huge coral belts that are protected under the care of Andaman Administration and therefore diving and activity spots change every month.
