“Balas Kalapthar beach visit”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

It is just a beach with some patch of black stones on the shore. May be one can take some photos in this beach. This beach may not suit swimmimg as the sea bed is full of stones.We spent about half an hour in this beach, that is all.

“Hidden treasure”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Most people would not reccomend this beach but one part of the beach has the most beautiful, fine and enchanting white sand (better than radhanagar beach). Its situated 10kms from the harbour. Lots of good restaurants on the way. We particularly liked the Le Meridian German bakery.

“Nice beach to rest in the evening”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Like I said, this is a rocky beach and visit only for the view. Hang around till the sunset and back.

“Havelock - heaven on Earth!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Whether you are on a honeymoon or on a relaxation tour, Havelock is the destination.

Good things first:
Amazing water - It is blue in colour and when u take a dive u feel fresh instead of sticky feel of the sea.
Not crowded - It is still away from the general crowd (this is becoming an issue in Goa)
Hired two wheeler - u get two wheeler on hire for 350 to 450 bucks..
Food - Variety available (Imagine u get hummus here!)

Cons:
Bit far.. Not a weekend destination at all

Havelock is a must desination if u want to enjoy rexaling besides blue water.
Just tho hrs from Port Blair (by sea) and u r here.

Attractions - Not much except Radha Nagar beach, elephant beach but the best is kalapatthar ..
Stay at a good resort, preferably a sea side resort, and u wont need anything ..

“Serene!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Just loved the place. So quiet and serene. Only the sound of the waves and the air as it passes through the trees by the beach. Bathing is not allowed here due to the presence of boulders in the water- hence the name.
