So disappointing. The island was so overcrowded. The lunch quality was ordinary with no cold drink options even though it was extremely hot and humid. There was not enough seats on the island unless you paid $40 extra on top of the trip cost to...More

We went there for few hours, just to do snorkeling. Clean tropical island with a resort, bars, shops and restaurants. They also have small crocodile park. We went for snorkeling and a little bit sad because we could clearly see that most of the reef...More

Having visited the Andamans last year, Green island didn't create wow effect. Its a beautiful island with facilities/activities for spending one full day. But if one has limited time and other alternatives, can easily give it a skip.

Got a Big Cat day trip, rented snorkeling gear and it was a good choice; tried the semi-sub reef sightseeing and it was stunning, saw rays, turtles, a blue starfish and a gazillion different reef fish. The experience on the boat was so-so because (1)...More

Three friends and I went out to Green Island before snorkeling. We walked around the island which doesn't have too much to offer outside of beaches and the crocodile exhibit. Recommend seeing the crocodiles for sure. The beach is pretty small and they mark off...More

I recommend that we should walk through the island to another side, where is more quite and less crowned, so you can have beautiful photos and a better spot for some rest. Don't forget the time that your boat will pick you up, cos you...More
