Guitar Island at Long Island Andaman in 2019

Guitar Island is an adorable island near the Long Island. The island derives its name from its appearance. Beware of the photo-shopped pictures promoting the myth that Guitar Island looks like a guitar having a hole in between depicting the sound hole. But actually the depiction of this island as a guitar is that, the Island is adjacent to the small guitar island. So this Small Guitar Island (which looks like the headstock of a Guitar) & the Guitar Island (Which looks like the body of the Guitar) is joined by a sand bar (which acts like the fret-board) hence giving it a structure similar to a guitar.
