Amazing beach. It has ruins of tsunami disaster. You can spend good quality time with your friends and family. Dont miss to take on a glass bottom boat ride to explore the corals and sea life without soaking yourself in water.

This is a place that can be accessed only by sailing. You can't drive till there. This remains closed on off season. There is a guy with the nickname "Lucky" who is an autodriver at the Havelock Jetty. He was very helpful in finding bikes, scuba diving at cheaper rates. I guess people here are so genuine because they've seen... More

Its an amazing place for snorkelling, Its a scenic beach with a beautiful trek, and you wont be able to resist the clear water and the variety of corals and marine life! It has lot of options like snorkelling, under water sea walk, banana boat ride etc. Also the divers are very helpful to give you a great snorkelling experience.

Elephant beach is an ideal beach for snorkelling. We trekked to this beach via farm land. Head for this beach if you love to snorkel. The rates are pretty reasonable and the divers help even first time snorkellers to have an amazing experience. Very clear water with wonderful corals and colourful sea life make up for a mesmerising experience -... More

One of the greatest attraction of havelock. U can use this beach for underwater sea walk as the water is clear and you get greatest possible visibility at havelock. Even though there is an option for sewalk at Port Blair too, but its recommended to opt for sea walk at Elephanta, Havelock as the cost is same bothway. Other sports... More

First of all, the name has been transformed by the many ignorant tourists and travel agents going there every day. The place was called ELEPHANT BEACH (too many confusion with elephanta caves next to Mumbai I guess) and was a pleasant beach and decent snorkeling, and a very beautiful trek. Now, snorkeling became dangerous because of all small noisy speedboats... More

Trekked to elephant beach! Can take a guide's help or walk it yourself. Tsunami has left its prints, Fallen trees, barks and a few dead corals. Went for the sea walk, snorkelling and glass boat. Very pretty corals, crystal clear water. Must go!

This is the place for water sports in Havelock. Its either a 10-12 mins boat ride for the jetty or a 30 mins trek. we took the trek and it was very enjoyable walking a wetland, supari tress and the jungle. The beach is very clean and safe. Its a really flat beach and you can swim here easily. Snorkeling... More
