About K-Rock, Neil Island (Shaheed Dweep)

Neil Island, now known as Shaheed Dweep officially, is known for its rich marine life across the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Compared to the popular Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep), it is less crowded and thus, you can explore the underwater world in a relaxed manner. An incredible dive site for all levels of scuba divers, K-Rock in Neil Island is a huge volcanic rock over a sandy bottom having varied depths. This dive site rarely has any current and thus, it is perfect for underwater navigation courses. There are many crevices, small overhangs, and small boulder formations for you to explore. You can spot different types of snappers, sweetlips, soldierfish, and butterfly fish on this rock. The aquatic life here is different from Havelock Island. If you are looking for dreamlike natural surprises, then your search ends at this diving site in Shaheed Dweep. Its thriving biodiversity, unexploited coral reefs, white sandy beaches, adventurous experiences, a notable population of birds and animal life, etc. are a few reasons why you should pick this island to scuba dive and also spend a few days of your life here.
