The Natural bridge formation in Neil Island is a rock jutting out from the main wall with a giant hole in it created by the continuous lashing waves over the years. The wall alongside bore the brunt of the Tsunami in the year 2004 and protected Neil Island from devastation. In the far corner, another natural bridge formation is underway. The bridge is also known as Howrah Bridge locally, a name given in jest by the Bengali settlers.

Natural Bridge in Neil Island

To reach this place you need to trek down from the main road where you get to witness the rocky beach with limestone rocks spread across the beach which are partially eroded in the salt waters probably due to the erosion with tides over thousands of years. You can see many starfishes or sea cucumbers visible in the shallow waters between the rocks.

How to reach?

To reach the natural bridge you have to walk through the seashores which are rich in marine life.


The best time would be to go at low tide, there are two of them in a day. You may scamper through at high tide. Get help from your local guide to know the tide timing simply get mesmerized by the power of nature.

What to see?

Apart from the natural bridge, you can also see some staghorn corals, finger corals, boulder corals, and color-changing corals from close quarters before the tide swells and hides them from sight.

What you should not miss.

You should not miss the underwater creatures visible in the shallow water during low tide.

What you can skip

You can skip going further from the natural bridge as you may get stuck during high tide in case you get late.

Adventure lovers. Not suitable for senior citizens.
