Witness A Natural Rock Formation

Affectionately referred to as Howrah Bridge by the locals, this is arguably the most famous attraction on the island. The rock formation is also a mainstay of lists naming the best places to visit in Neil Island. It is a massive rock formed by dead corals, with an opening caused by thousands of years worth of erosion by wind and water. The resulting gap in the bottom has given the rock the appearance of a bridge. The bridge and the surrounding biodiversity ensure that this is a great spot to furnish your photography skills. We request you not to take any of the coral homes as a keepsake, there are numerous other places on the island where visitors can get souvenirs.
