The waters of the beach are crystal clear, providing good visibility of the depths to the naked eye. The sand is golden in colour and the contrast of it the deep blue water makes up an exquisite image. Scuba Diving and Snorkelling are immensely popular here due to extoic species of fish and corals. The glass-bottom boat rides are also popular for people who want to view the corals without geting into the water. The Island is covered with thick forest cover, majority of which is virgin and unexplored. Note that the Jolly Buoy Island is not open for tourists for throughout the year.

"Wonderful place to experience live corals and sea creatures. However after Tsunami many corals were destroyed which might take more than a century to revive yet the place has recovered a lot. Tourism department is taking a lot of precaution to prevent any damage. Snorkeling, glass boat tour are available at a attractive price which gives visually pleasing experience. Mist visit for every Andaman tourist! "

"Amazing place, is a must visit. Unfortunately, it appears to be place that many people are not aware of. Allow 1 full day, excellent snorkelling and glass bottomed boat experience. The coral reefs are awesome and the forest dept does such a great job of managing and maintaining it. Jolly Buoy is open from Nov to Apr and Red Skin island from May to Oct. "

"Great place and must visit. Experience Andamans team thank you for planning this trip for me and my family. If it had not been for your team, getting the permit and other tickets would have been much more difficult. Those who are planning a visit, I will recommend to carry packed food or fruits just in case, if you get hungry. No changing rooms are available here. Snorkeling and Glass bottom boat rides can be availed at this destination. Thank you again the whole experience andamans team for making this trip the most memorable for me and my family."
