I didn't visit it but if you are good on your legs and like hiking, you can save a lot of money. Elephanta beach is not on a separate island but right there on Havelock. Typically... read more

A beautiful location. with facilities for snorkeling, sea-walking. The main activity area could be crowded, but, one could walk a bit away and could find tranquility. A very good idea is to walk from the Trek point to elephanta beach and back - that is a really enjoyable little walk

I didn't visit it but if you are good on your legs and like hiking, you can save a lot of money. Elephanta beach is not on a separate island but right there on Havelock.

There you can do all kind of water sports but it can be done at other places too.And they are costly over there.they won't let you explore the whole island .You have to stay at the bank where we land initially.

Travel by personal boat & have fun. It would require a boat to go to elephant island. Trip was good. a bit expensive , but worth it.

We walked here from the main road, a 1.8km walk through the forest. You can leave your scooter here for free and its very safe. It was a lovely walk through the forest and quite gentle. I recommend trainers rather than flip flops. Take a bottle of water as it can be hot. Just before the beach there is an... More
