This island was occupied by British initially and then occupied by japnies during 2nd world war. Visit can be complete in 1-2 hrs time. Evening sound and light show. Need to travel by boat to reach this island.This travel depends on the Sea weather condition

Very nice location but the steep walk inside may not be suitable for elder people but view is good. Some old buildings including church. Overall it’s a small beautiful place.

Plan your visit along with Light & Sound Show. The boat starts @1530 hrs from Sports Complex Jetty.The tickets are sold online. This will be cheaper option rather than morning vist where charges varies from Rs 300-700.
