This beach is very famous for its corals.
We did snorkeling and glass bottom boat ride. (both for the first time.)

Snorkeling was a unforgettable experience.

the beach is good clean and beautiful.

Can have water bike ride diving banana boat ride etc.

Only problem is you wont get any thing to eat. so have to carry snacks and water since its a 30-45 min boat ride to this place.
-Also you have to plan it in the first half of the day. Visitors are not allowed afternoon.
-No toilets avilable

Port Blair, India
Reviewed July 15, 2013

A must visit place in the Andaman and Nicobar islands. The island with lush green forest, beautiful sea and the beaches make up for a perfect vacation. Around four hours sea journey from Port Blair on a government ferry and around 100 minutes on Makruzz(Catamarine speed boat) or similar. Travelers usually prefer to stay in this island because of its lined up beach resorts, exotic sea food, white sand beaches, scuba, snorkeling and trekking. There would be many other reasons for a traveler to visit this island. The serene location of this island takes you very close to nature. Very good tender coconut and all varieties of meals are available. For a sea food lover this place is a heaven. Havelock have been a primary spot for many of the visitors to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The island is beautifully organized to give a perfect experience to anyone who would love to enjoy mother nature. The beaches are one among the most beautiful beaches in Asia. The blue green water along with the white sand beaches makes you fall in love and sometimes difficult to believe as these are usually seen in images. The island has a lot to offer from trekking, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling and sea walk.

A night stay is the minimum required in this Island. Best option is to book a beach side resort. Each beach resort has a specialty of its own. At night, you can walk on the beach and listen to echoes of the waves chanting throughout. High up and the stars and the moon make you fall in love with the island. A sparkle of the waves touching the coast gives you hope amid the challenges life has to offer. Walk down the road and you would find various options to tickle your taste buds with fresh sea fish, kebabs, tan-doors pastas and many other continental style food.

Major attraction here are Elephant Beach and Radhanagar Beach also know as beach number 7.

Its one of the popular beach where the colour of water changes with light. The view is breath taking. Its the best place for snorkeling and glass bottom boat ride. I loved and enjoyed both the activities thoroughly. The beach was rich in flora & fauna and the visibility of corals was stunning. Don’t miss the glass bottom ride here.
