Guitar Island Beach

One of the numerous exquisite but uninhabited islands of Andaman and Nicobar, Guitar Island is as beautiful and rewarding a destination as one can be. With brilliant blue water all around and tropical greens inside, this island makes for a stunning day trip from the main island.

Out of the 572 pristine islands of Andaman and Nicobar, 38 are forever and permanently uninhabited. Most of these islands are favourite destinations of those who seek to travel offbeat, away from the regular crowd of tourists.

There are some gems of islands among the cluster, and one such is Guitar Island. The small patch of green in the azure blue of Indian Ocean is named so because of its shape. An aerial view of the island will reveal that it looks exactly like a guitar from up there, complete with a small sound hole of water in the middle, the long neck and even the headstock.
