“elephant beach”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This beach is haven for adventure sports.
We did sofa ride, jet ski and snorkelling. The water is clean and has blue, turquoise and green shade.
And yes there are no elephants ..
When U go for the water sports do take extra clothes as there is no changing room. The one already there(like a beach hut) stinks and is in a bad state.
Dont miss SCUBA DIVING and try samosa-chole chat with coconut water.(if its available)

“Sea plane a great way to reach Havelock Island, Port Blair”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

For visiting Havelock Island at Andaman’s, it’s better to go from Port Blair by sea plane and return by Makruz . It’s a great view of islands and coral reefs from sea plane, throughout and especially just before landing on sea. You get down on a pontoon and from there one can enjoy seeing sea plane take off for its return flight. A motor boat from pontoon takes you to Havelock Island. From Port Blair Sea plane takes off from airport...
Points to note: There are no flights on Sunday, only 5kg check in luggage allowed and as there are only 2 flights in a day and its only 9 seater plane so early booking is required. I got it booked through my Hotel.

“Heaven on Earth !!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Well, we all crib that the beaches in India are so terrible and dirty and blah blah ....but take a visit to this amazing place in your country and you will be running short of words for this beautiful place... You will not find bikini babes around ... but if you are close to nature and love adventure then this is indeed a place to get lost... Don't forget to carry your DSLR if you are fond of photography .. Soak your feet in the water... watch your footsteps in the sand and bid farewell to the sinking sun... Do go for scuba diving if you are a trained swimmer and if not then you can enjoy snorkeling.... bird watching ,island hopping and jungle trips . The whole experience will keep you mesmerized ;) ... Bonne Vacances !!!

It was really a nice place to see natural beauty. you can stay hours in clean and clear water. the only negative point was that changing rooms were not nearby.

“Good Beach for Walking - not Swimming”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

It is a nice sandy beach, great for walking and sitting by. It is kept reasonably clean by the hotels. It has large lava rocks so it is not good for swimming.
