This beach would have received outstanding reviews if it was anywhere else on the Indian mainland. However, since it is in Havelock, I will have to rate it as just average. It's a nice beach with very little crowd. It is around 9 kilometers for the jetty and the recommended mode of transportation to reach this beach is by hiring... More

if you have time to spare then only . prioritize, see Elephant beach, radha nagar, neil and spent a day on vijay nagar. If time permitting get to kala pathar not much to see rather the sea is better close to hotels at vijay nagar beach

The tropical forests on one side of the road, the black rocks along the coastline, the white silver sands make this beach a great place to relax. Beach is not good for swimming as strong current in the deep water may be there and also rocky surface. Still the place is good to relax and spend hours away from the... More

Its a rocky beach, and you can see jelly fish in water, so getting into water is not an option. We went in the morning and it was almost deserted. After reading so much about this beach on Tripadvisor, I had really high expectations. But I was disappointed, not because the beach was bad, but because my expectations were very... More

Went around 4pm. Beach was clean, white sand, clear water, very few people about 250m long. Could not see any Kaala Pathar on the beach itself. Nice for a swim and some solitude.

We hiked 4 KMS from Vijaynagar beach to arrive at this beach. The beach is filled with trash -- plastic bottles, wrappers, frayed ropes, and broken glass. I think this is the worst beach we have ever been to anywhere in the world.
