very beautiful place.you got to see corals here. water at this beach is still like lake ...you dont see sea waves here..may be due to its topography..You can visit here barefoot from Radhanagar beach in less than 10 min but guide take you through boat from some far away place and charge Rs 700 per head..worth visiting place

you would require to trek for a while before you reach this beach and its the best beach in Havelock. Beach has white sand and lot of lovely seashells and cowries , but you cannot take them back home. it's restricted. Snorkelling on this beach is just amazing, not to be missed!

Among all Islands near Port Blair Elephanta Beach at Havelock Island is best suited and known for water sports. It takes around 30 mins by regular motor boat to reach this beach from Havelock Jetty, speed boats are also available which take lesser time. Complimentary snorkeling is included in both the options, a guide on the boat will help you... More

Elephanta Beach offers very good sea walking experience (not found in many places). A must visit to have first hand experience of this facility and also offers scuba diving and other water sports which is very attractive. The pearls and fishes are visible so closely even during the snorkelling activity. It is a must visit beach to have more fun.

We had visited Radhanagar Beach before visiting this beach and so our expectations were very high. This is a good beach with water sports facilities but comes nowhere near Radhanagar beach.

Elephanta Beach is like any other average beach in India but a lot cleaner because nobody stays there. The beach had several large uprooted trees which reminded tourists of the severity of the super cyclone. Watersports facilities are available at the beach.

Exciting water sports like banana boat, motor boat etc. could be done here along with snorkeling. U could see corals and sea fishes. There are... More
