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.
