  • It's a beautiful beach with nice corals for snorkeling but it closes by 3pm, I mean, it's totally run down by tourist and noise from jet ski, boats and other water sports make your journey horrible. However if you want run go there please don't take boats to reach there as the snorkelling money added in the ride is only for a small training at the beach in shallow water. The snorkeling experience is good there, but for that you have to pay additional Rs.800 from which the boat guy and everyone else has their commission. A better way to enjoy elephant beach is to reach there by trekking, yes it's not easy but it is enjoyable and once you reach there move on from main beach by walking ahead inside forest to find a calm white sandy beach and for snorkeling haggle with the guy who will happily take you for snorkeling under Rs.500. Enjoy your vacation and don't forget to pack your lunch as no eateries are there, only temporary snacks counters.

  • Best beach in Havelock, better than Radhanagar Beach. The sea is really calm and it is great for some water activities like snorkeling. Also sports like jet ski and banana boats are available. The beach is clean with a great number of stalls selling quality fruits which are very delicious. One needs to get there by boats departing from Havelock jetty. The boat tickets provide complimentary snorkeling with half masks near the shore. There's another option of deep sea snorkeling for which one has to pay extra. It's really beautiful and worth visiting.

  • One of the most amazing and beautiful beach of the andman and Nicobar Islands. And very popular among all tourist. There are lots of the water sports. It's take around 20 minutes to reach there from Port Blair via boat.very neat and clean water.its raining When I was there that's makes it more amazing and beautiful.you can find the paid clock room, eatables and changing room. Last but not least. It's very amazing beach
