Elephant beach is famous for water sports in Havelock Island and it can get crowded if we do not reach early. It is very beautiful even without the water sports.

One of the best beaches in Andaman Islands. I did snorkeling and it was an amazing experience. Although, snorkeling was included in our travel itinerary, but by paying a 1000 bucks , they took us lil further into the deep sea and what we saw underneath the blue calm waters shall remain a experience of life time.

Vaguely resembling an elephant rock and vast flat area and shallow water makes it ideal for snorkeling, an experience one must have in the Andamans. Can be a bit crowded at times though.

Good place to swim around. Less water activities. Badly maintained changing rooms. Would be great tourist place if maintenance can be improved.
