The beach is average, it is good for water sports like snorkeling, sea walk, jet ski and glass bottom boat ride (for those who haven't done the sea walk and scuba diving).

We took a speed boat to Elephant Island which every tour group seems to go to... You can not snorkel freely possible to protect coral Too many vendors and boats on the island. Water was choppy ... grounds around beach was filthy despite signs saying keep it clean.

It did however, have a sense of beauty with the fallen trees left from the tsunami impact.

The beach can only be reached by utilsing the boats from near the havelock jetty. The beach has excellent water sport activities, snorkeling and underwater sea walk. A must visit when at Andaman & Nicobar Islands

We visited Elephant Beach for snorkeling. I was not aware that "snorkeling" at Elephant Beach means that you are allowed to float around on a tube with your face in the water while a guide pulls you. You are allowed to put your mask in the water of course but you are not allowed to actually swim. Furthermore, the snorkeling... More
