Best Beaches in Asia:
Bestowed with the precious award of 'Asia's best beach' by TIME Magazine, Radha Nagar Beach situated 12kms from Havelock's ferry pier is undoubtedly one of the beat beaches of Andaman Islands. Fine white sand, turquoise blue waters and a lot of peace and serenity are the hallmark of this beautifull
Elephant Beach (Hathi Tapu)
Also known as 'Haathi Tapu'; the Hindi version of Elephant Beach. Weird name isn't it? Well, the island derives its name from the walks that the elephants of Havelock have been known to take around this region. Though there is everything same about elephant beach, there are small intricacies that set it apart from others. This place is considered to be the best place for Snorkelling and Diving because of the clear blue conditions
Vijaynagar Beach (Beach No.5)
Vijayanagar Beach is also one of the very sought after islands on Havelock, situated on the east coast region. Apart from the sparkling waters and white sand, there are many things that set the beach apart. There are rocky sections on the beach which one might occasionally bump into. The beach line is a perfect setting for a quiet beach walk. One very unique thing about the islands is that there are a lot of Mahua trees which grow several feet along the ground before taking up virtual heights. This gives a very distinct look to the shoreline and also a very comfortable shade to the tourists just near the water.
