Guitar Island Beach
One of the significant yet less explored islands in Andaman is Guitar Island and there is a fascinating reason behind the unusual name of it. The shape of a guitar is clearly drawn by the island and yet another feature is that this island gets connected to the neighboring island during low tides. For sightseeing and spending a fresh morning, this island is quite good. This inhabited island is a wonder for many as it is tucked away by the green nature and astounding azure water that would be supported always by the relaxed long beach.
Apart from some fishing boats, the island is devoid of the crowd and you will feel the most private space on the island without any hindrance. Since there are no settlements on the island, night stay will be difficult. Hence tourists arrive here in the morning, spend some time relaxing and then go back by afternoon.
Highlights: The long sandy beaches are the major attraction on the island and the relishing nature supports it throughout. The pristine nature would eclipse everything else on the island.
Activities: Sightseeing and beach walk along the long, narrow yet beautiful sand bed are the most appreciated and welcomed activities but you will get enough chances to spot the sea animals like crabs, hermit crabs etc roaming around and a huge collection of shells will be seen here and there throughout the beach.
Distance from Port Blair: Since Guitar Island is a part of Long Island, it can be approached by dunghi or traditional boat to the island. It will take around 15 minutes only. From Port Blair, Long Island is around 90 km and one can reach by road or by sea taking a boat service.
