Had a great day out there. the White sand kissing the bluish green water is mind blowing. What I loved the most was the boat ride and specially the light house in the evening.

It's an amazing white sand beach and is easily accessible through a jetty from the main jetty point in Havelock. Jetties ply on a regular basis from the jetty point. It usually takes around 25-30 minutes to reach the Elephant beach (don’t expect to see any elephant here).The beach is usually crowded and still neat and clean. It is picturesque... More

We were 8 of SIEMENS leadership team went to Havelock for an offsite. One of the planned events was to trek and go to Elephant beach. Boy we had an amazing experience trekking 1.8 KM which certainly looked like 18 KM going through all hose slippery paths and difficult terrain. We sweated like hell, something Bangaloreans does not get too... More

Preparations are to be done. Carry water and snacks with you beforehand. You have to take a speed boat to reach there. Then the main attraction is snorkelling which you already get complementary for 15 mins with the speed boat. They would charge for underwater photos. Mostly they give Corel pics.so no need for that. Underwater sea walk and scuba... More

The Elephant beach is pristine with crystal clear waters and best option for adventure water sports like scuba diving, sea walking, glass bottom boat ride and snorkeling. The beach can be accessed by boat from the Havelock island jetty or by a trek of about 1 km from Radhanagar beach. Since we were staying @ Radhanagar beach we took the... More

It takes around 20 minutes to reach Elephant beach from the Main Havelock port. The sailor who took us there guided us well enough about the activities available and also made us aware of what was worth and what not. The natives there are extremely strict about the rules and that was great to know! They take great care of... More

This beach is very famous for water sports as I enjoyed snorkelling and jet-ski there. People should keep whole day for it to enjoy on this beach.

It's the most clean beach I have seen in havelock, at least with most clear water. While in a ship with water depth of around 10 to 15 meter I can still see the sea bed and fishes from the deck. To reach here we need to take a boat from havelock jetty. The speed boat ride is a fun... More
