Netrani (Pigeon Island) (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Netrani (Pigeon Island), about 9 miles W of Shirali, and 10 NM of Murudeshwara, is a coral island, wooded and flat-topped with a conspicuous summit, 101m high. It is steep-to except for a rock, 16m high, off its S end, and a rocky shoal close E of the island.

This Island has some of the best sites for scuba diving easily accessible from Goa, Mumbai or Bangalore. There are many dive shops from Goa that regularly organize dive expeditions to Netrani.

The island adjacent to Netrani is used by the Indian navy for target practice. 

It is not recommended to visit Netrani without permission.
