Sitapur beach in Neil Island

At the tip of the island, about 5km from the market is beach No. 5. Also known as the โ€˜sunrise beachโ€™ Sitapur beach is famous for the breathtaking sunrise view in the early morning. This postcard-perfect serene beach has two curved bays and clear blue waters which is just like an imagination come true for photography lovers.

Due to its location, it is prone to higher tides and stronger currents, thus making it not much suitable for swimming. All along the white stretches of soft sand, there is plenty of shade from the coconut trees. At low tide, one can walk to the second bay and explore small caves or just enjoy the tranquility of this beach.

How to reach?

This beach has an impressive natural backdrop and limestone formations. The journey to Sitapur beach itself is refreshingly beautiful as the ride goes via paddy fields and dense forests. You can walk down the fields or rent a bike from Neil Kendra to reach this beach.


Sunrise timing varies from 5-6 am.
