One of the busiest beaches full of day trippers and water sports enthusiasts. It's nothing great as compared to other beaches of Havelock but that's the only beach for all kind of water sports like sea walking scuba diving etc etc. The best way to visit this beach is from the Havelock jetty, there are many boats ready to take...

This beach is an eyesore as compared to the other beaches on the island. A lot of day trippers tend to spend their mornings here with banana boats and sea walking, leaving behind heaps of plastic bags, bottles and other random assortment of goodies.

been there in February of 2014 been there twice in fact loved the trek up to the beach i suggest every one to walk up to the beach which takes about 20 mins one way and is very easy no need of a guide. but too many people go there everyday which is really hurting the marine life up there... More

So the best thing about this beach is you have to trek a lil, cross a bit of muddy mangrove and then water all over :) Well I know swimming and got my own snorkling gear but I was kind of scared of going deeper so I landed up rentin a tube and then I snorkled by my own happily... More

I visited elephant beach in havelock during my visit to andaman recently.The weather was gorgoeus and sunny and the water was crystal clear. The beach sand was pure white. The island is inhabited only during the day time when the tourists visit. The highlights were the giant trees that have fallen over the beach and which were mesmerizing; if one... More

Crowded, and the snorkeling experience was hurried. Sea Walking is totally overrated and costs a bomb 3200 per person + 720 for the boat ride and lasts just about 10 minutes. For a full review do check http://ketakidate.blogspot.in/2014/04/andaman-holiday-week-in-paradise.html

Like - expert guides for snorkeling, you dont have to be a swimmer, beautiful beach, holiday mood. dislike - no sea walk when we went, no proper wash room, activities dont start very early.

I like the whole trip of Andaman islands only because of this island. This one is very nice. Very good place to do snorkelling and other water activites.

We love birds and snorkeling. Here we got both covered. You walk through the forest to get to this beach. We saw lots of birds (we went early). Once at the beach we jumped in with our snorkeling gear and enjoyed it tremendously to see the coral reef with all the pretty fish. We were on Havelock for only 2.5... More
