We were pleasantly surprised with the beauty of this beach. The snorkelling is a must do activity here. The water is very clean and hence the coral exposure is fantastic. I think this beach offers the best snorkelling experience of Andaman.

Such a clean and lovely beach. Snorkelling, sea walk, banana boat... so many activities and very helpful and cordial people to help you with these. Don't go just for the complimentary snorkelling. Go for the one which takes you into deeper waters. Such an amazing experience. Sea walk is also a must do and safe for all age groups.

This is the best beach I have seen till now. Extremely clean, blue water, white sand and the trees around make it a lovable spot. You will have to travel in a boat for about 45 min. to reach this island but its worth it.

The boat ride from havelock to elephant beach is amazing!! it leaves you some kind of a shutter island movie feel with a light house overlooking on your journey towards this beach. We did Snorkelling at this beach and we truly enjoyed it a lot. Opt for a deep sea snorkelling option. I bet you its worth it!! it comes... More

I would say, this is a "Must See" at Andamans. More activities than most other beaches. Though small jelly-fishes might cause irritation to kids and elderly, nothing much to worry. There is a medical tam and lifeguards on duty to help. Lately Snorkeling is banned for non-certified swimmers. Hence, most people were opting to "sea-walk" which costs Rs.3,200 per person.... More

Elephant Beach is reached by boat from Havelock island. The boat ride lasts about 30 min and is a beautiful experience , cutting across deep green waters in a speedboat. Safety gets top priority and wearing the life jacket is a MUST. Boat operators would lose their license if found carrying passengers not wearing the life jacket. The beach is... More
