Elephanta Beach takes about 20 minutes speed boat from Havelock. Beside normal sea sports like Snokeling, speed boat etc, the most entertaining and adventurous was SEA WALK. We were given helmet to wear which was pressurized with oxygen. We were taken with the help of divers to the bottaom of the sea about 25/30 ft down. It was really amazing... More

It take 30-40 mintutes from Havelock Jetty Point. You have to pay 700 per head to travel in a boat. Boat carries 4 persons to 6 persons as per availability. You return back via same boat. Snorkeling is complimentary with price of boat ticket. Water sports activity available but too much expensive. You can easily spend 3 hours with full... More

The boat ride itself is so interesting and adventurous that each minute is worth the money spent .The boat ride costs rs. 1500 with snorkeling free. Otherwise no charge as it is beach for all. once there, a lot of... More

underwater walking and snorkelling are a must when u r here. the team of divers hand-hold you during these activities and make you forget that you are a non-swimmer! the under water walk is strongly recommended as it will change the way you look at marine life. even if these activities are not your cup of tea, the beach and...

If you have a day to kill while on Havelock, this is a good spot to visit. We took an autorickshaw from the Barefoot at Havelock Resort that dropped us off at a spot on the main road. The hike upto the beach took about 35-40 minutes but it was nice being inside a jungle hearing the sounds of exotic... More

Elephant Beach is approachable only by Boat/ Speed Boat from Havlok near Jetty point. We were two couple & we got one four seater speed boat for Rs 3500/- which took us to the Elephant Beach in about twenty minutes otherwise slow boats take much more time. One time snorkelling was free for every member in this package. There were... More
