We visited elephanta after north bay, radhanagar and neil island. Hence, in comparison, the beach looked just ok and not the beauty it seems to many. Though we couldn't see the famed elephants but did snorkel, splashed about and relaxed.

Awesome experience we had while trekking through the jungle to reach this beach. We got the guide to explain about this place for very reasonable cost. Snorkeling is major attraction here, We can see live coral and fish from the sea surface.

This beach is just used for the water sports you would need to spend 600 (boat to get there) Bucks per person and spend almost whole day as the only way to get there is by boat and some of you who have done water sports in Goa are going to find it useless

The place is amazing with nice white sand and forest around. The trees are too high and very shady. There is water sports around but not as commercial as Goa. The beach is very nice but i fell would change soon due to heavy commercialization. This place is worth the visit. Please carry lot of water before you leave.

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
