The island is a boat ride away from the Little Andaman Island, at a distance of about 27km. The island is uninhabited. Divers and expedition enthusiasts can explore clear waters and special corals on this isle. In 1977, the South Sentinel Island Sanctuary was established on this island, home to indigenous Coconut Crabs.
