I visited elephant beach in havelock during my visit to andaman recently.The weather was gorgoeus and sunny and the water was crystal clear. The beach sand was pure white. The island is inhabited only during the day time when the tourists visit. The highlights were the giant trees that have fallen over the beach and which were mesmerizing; if one... More

Crowded, and the snorkeling experience was hurried. Sea Walking is totally overrated and costs a bomb 3200 per person + 720 for the boat ride and lasts just about 10 minutes. For a full review do check http://ketakidate.blogspot.in/2014/04/andaman-holiday-week-in-paradise.html

Like - expert guides for snorkeling, you dont have to be a swimmer, beautiful beach, holiday mood. dislike - no sea walk when we went, no proper wash room, activities dont start very early.

We love birds and snorkeling. Here we got both covered. You walk through the forest to get to this beach. We saw lots of birds (we went early). Once at the beach we jumped in with our snorkeling gear and enjoyed it tremendously to see the coral reef with all the pretty fish. We were on Havelock for only 2.5... More

Very nice place and better place for snorkeling and i enjoyed a lot. Don't miss snorkeling in this place and its very cheap per head only 300 Rs. You have to do trekking 2 km in the forest and you easily get so many guides and they take 200 Rs per couple. From Sea Shell hotel i took rented 2... More

Absolutely Clear Blue water(Like Mineral Water...You can see Fishes in it)... Then We started our sports activity with SEA-WALK. I have seen such marine life in Discovery or NGC that too some where in Australia or in USA... More

Those of you who are inrested in snorkelling, this is the first choice without doubt. Describing the coral reef and the numerous lives in and and around them is beyond words. So dont miss Elephanta.
