Omg... Where should i start?! I was dumbstruck by the pristine crystal clear water. Loved the snorkeling activity there..... I have never seen such variety of corals and underwater fauna. It was AMAZING. I just hope people don't spoil the natural habitat. Must go place but make sure you come back without messing the place.

Superb beach.. beautiful corals. Snorkeling experience could be the best here.. nice trainer for snorkeling. There is also an option for glass boat. Around 10 mins of glass boat is complimentary. Overall worth visiting.

Jolly buoy island is open for tourists only from November - May and is a must visit on your trip to andamans. It is the best place to do snorkelling. You can see a variety of corals and fishes. The natural beauty of the place is a treat to soul.

Jolly Bouy and Red skin are two Islands where tourists are allowed for 6 months each. These Islands are far better than North Bay as the water is much more clear, there is less boat traffic, the water is calmer and the corals and the aquatic life is better. I took the glass bottomed boat and I saw some of... More

This Island is very clean and they don't allow any plastic to carry there because of the pollution (not even water bottle). Very crystal clear water, I have never seen this kind of clearity in my life. You have to submit your Government Id card and get permission to go there. Its open only for 6 months in a year....

As title suggest you cannot miss this island if you are at Andamans. Have to take permission from forest official one day prior to visit as this island is under national park and protected. Here you can enjoy glass bottom boat ride and do snorkeling. Water here are crystal clear so u can see till bottom from top of water.... More

Its nature at its best, completely magical! Permits are needed in advance. Also, there is no food or water on the island, so best to carry adequate supplies when visiting. Best place to see corals and a ride in glass bottom boat is a must (costs approx. 650 per person when not peak season). Also, nothing can be left on... More

This island comes under Mahatma Gandhi National Marine Park. The access to this island is restricted to people with permission from tourist department. You can not take any plastic material with you and that is why this place is still undiluted. The water is very clean. Only some part of the beach is good for swimming. Rest of the part... More

This beach was the best in terms of cleanliness . We enjoyed our outling at Jolly Buoy. You need to carry some food to eat as nothing is available in this not commercialized beach.Recommend this beach for snorkelling and a good swim
