At a distance of 5 km from Neil Jetty and 42 km from Port Blair, Sitapur Beach or Beach No. 5 is a serene rocky beach situated at the tip of Neil Island in Andamans.
Sitapur Beach is exposed to the open sea and thus prone to higher tides. Also known as the 'Sunrise Beach', this beach offers mesmerizing sunrise views early in the morning. This serene beach has two curved bays and clear blue waters. It is popular for its natural vegetation and limestone formations.
Though prone to high tides, this beach is considered safe for swimming at all times. All along the white stretches of soft sand there is plenty of shade from the palm trees. At low tide one can walk to the second bay and explore small caves or just enjoy the peacefulness of Sitapur Beach. The journey from the Jetty to Sitapur beach itself is refreshing with green fields and a variety of crops and forest trees.
As the beach is never crowded there are no facilities yet, one can only buy fresh coconuts. There is a resort with a small restaurant.
