Elephant Beach, Havelock Island Reviews

  • Beautiful place and excellent experience to visit and enjoy with friends or family enjoying the superb beauty all around. Water activities here are also good and enjoyable. Snorkeling here is good to me which I have enjoyed with thrill. The guides are friendly and helpful. The sea beach will also attract more due to its unique beauty in one hand and the water activities on the other hand. A must place of visit, as per my opinion, during the visit of Havelock.

  • A beautiful beach. An awesome experience we had here. Its 30 minutes ride by speed boat from Havelock Island. Boat charges around 1000 rupees. One can reach here on foot also through the forest path, distance 2 km approx. Beautiful blue sea. Journey in speed boat really enjoyable. Beach is clean and perfect for swimming also watersports. Guides are friendly. Scuba, snorkelling, water ski and other water sports can be enjoyed here from 8 am to 3 pm. Security measures are adequate. However except some fruits no other foods are available in the beach area. A must visit beach while at Havelock.

  • Awesome place. Must visit. Cost of speed boat ride is around 800/900, they say free snorkeling is there.(when u go there they say free snorkeling is not usefull pay 800 and go for a longer one)the snorkeling is very good here, it's worth the money. The beach is clean. You can also walk for 2 km and reach here through the Forrest route.(Ur guide/ driver will conveniently forget to inform this to u and say only way to reach is by boat). For water sports Elephant beach is the best option in Andaman. If possible carry food , u won't get here.

  • Its a 25 minutes boat ride from Havelock jetty. All the activities such as scuba, snorkeling, jet ski, sea walk goes on from 8am to 3pm. The water is blue and clear.. The scenery during the boat journey is beautiful. Snorkeling comes as complimentary along with the boat ride for RS. 600/- . If u pay an additional 600/- the guide will take you a little farther along the coral reef and you can see the beautiful live corals and marine life. They also will take pictures of u snorkeling. Best place for taking pictures and a must visit.

  • Glass bottom ride is awesome. Visited in Apr2013. We took a shared boat of 6 people to go to elephant beach. The glass bottom ride was for 15 mins. The sand here is very soft and drops off from body easily once dry. The water is very clear and corals can be seen here.
