It is like a perfect haven for everyone who prefers enjoying a quaint beach location. If you are wondering where you can find a beach like this then you need to visit Andaman for that.

How to reach Sitapur Beach

By cabs

One of the most comfortable ways to reach this beach is via cabs. The beach is 67 km away from Port Blair. However it can be tough to get a cab to only reach this beach. You can opt for booking a 3 point cab that will take you to all the three beaches in Neil Island Sitapur Beach, Laxmanpur Beach and Bharatpur Beach. Sitapur Beach to Bharatpur Beach distance is 5.3 km away and from Sitapur Beach to Laxmanpur Beach it is 7 km away. Approximate cost of the cab would be around Rs. 1200. So you can surely opt for that.

By bus

Another option to reach here is by bus. From the Neil Island Jetty you will get some buses to reach the beach in about 20 minutes. However the frequencies of these buses are very low. But this is one of the cheapest ways to travel as well. For a one way trip the fare is usually around Rs. 20 per person.

By auto rickshaw

Auto rickshaws are also a common mode of transport to reach the beach. From the Neil Island Jetty you can find an auto rickshaw to reach the beach in about 10 minutes. For a one way trip the approximate fare is around Rs. 100. However you need to negotiate for the price a little to get the best price. Also if you are opting for an auto rickshaw make sure you also book that for a 2 way trip. While returning from the beach, it will be tough to get an auto rickshaw again. Also you can reach the main market in the Neil Island and then go for a short trek to the Sitapur Beach which is around 5 km away. It will be an interesting and casual trek if you are interested in opting for that.

Best time to visit Sitapur Beach

According to months of visit, the ideal time to visit here is from September to May. This is the time when the beach enjoys comfortable weather. You will be able to enjoy a clear view of the sky as well during this time. In a way this weather is also comfortable for a variety of outdoor activities like sunbathing or walking around the beach. The comfortable weather will help you in enjoying the whole area as well. So if you are visiting here try to visit during these months. The monsoon months can be a little too extreme here. There can be thunderstorm activities and because of high tides you may not be able to enjoy the sea well. So make sure you are avoiding the monsoon months as the rains can be a dampener for your visit.

If you are wondering what time of the day is ideal for a visit to this beach then it is obviously the Sunrise time. The authorities have officially named the beach as the Sunset Beach and there are obvious reasons for it too. So in no way you can miss out on the gorgeous sunrise here. Also as this beach is devoid of any kinds of water sports or other activities the sunrise is by far the only activity you can enjoy here. So visit here early in the morning to enjoy the breathtaking view.

Overview of Sitapur Beach

At the tip of the Neil Island at a 5 km distance from the market you will find the Sitapur Breach. This beach also called the Beach no 5 is a picture perfect beach in Neil Island. Also popular as Sunrise Beach this is the beach where people specifically visit to witness the sunrise. People consider the Sitapur Beach Sunrise as one of the most pristine sunrises ever. With the azure green sea and the blue sky above and golden sand on the beach this picturesque beach is one of the less explored beaches in Andaman. Other than sunrises this beach is also popular for the pristine sunsets as well.

On all three sides of this beach you will find lush greenery. And the other side of it opens up to the beach. This beach is located at a stretch away from the mainstream and that is one of the reasons why this beach is comparatively less visited.
