The waters are clear and the beach is picturesque but its not necessary to go there. Its not as good as Radhanagar. The prices for jetski and other activities are exorbitant. The boat association will charge 750 including snorkelling , but the snorkelling is a waste for those who have already done scuba diving. Not worth the effort. Please avoid... More

Coral is great .....HOWEVER.... they have the water sports side by side to the snorkeling area. We kept on hearing the boats and jets go... More

Like all beaches in Andaman, this one is clean and I mean it very clean. The sea is calm and makes an excellent place for swimmers. The water is so clear you can see fishes and other sea creatures while swimming. The destruction by Tsunami is still visible in upturned trees, but now they add to the look and feel... More

This beach is popular for snorkeling. Additionally, one could do a banana boat ride, jet ski ride and be sure of getting drenched as the guys conducting it ensure that they drench you completely by a few falls off the boat / ski. Those who wish to just swim and laze in water will also love it here.
