#Beach in Andaman & Nicobars

One of the most visited beaches in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Elephant Beach is beautiful stretch of golden sand that meets with the turquoise blue waters on the Havelock Island.

Elephant Beach is adorned with fallen tree trunks, and mangrove forests. There are many activities one can enjoy on the beach including snorkelling, kayaking and the most sought after sea walking. Just plunge to the depths of the ocean and experience underwater marine life in all its glory. Many exotic species of fishes and coral reefs reside here. The glass bottom boat rides are also a popular way of viewing the coral reefs. Or you can just laze around on the beach, admiring the landscape before you. Sunrises and sunsets can be viewed from this beach. This is a destination that must be necessarily visited or one may miss out on one of the finest beaches in the world.

"The beach is known for water sports. Take a boat from Havelock Main Jetty to go to this place. So you will be enjoying some sea ride in the boat. Jet ski ride, banana ride, snorkelling etc. are some of the water sports here. Snorkelling may be free of cost as it depends on your travel company. Jet Ski and banana ride may cost you some Rs. Enjoy some snacks like fruit chats. ;) "

"Amazing beach, pristine & clear waters. The only way to reach this place is by a boat from Havelock main jetty. Best time to have is as early as possible (around 8am) Probably the only place in India where you can do sea-walk (can be done by those as well who can't do scuba diving, costs abt 3000 rs ). Lot of other water activities like jet ski, banana ride etc As part of the boat ticket, you get free snorkeling too. You get to sea lot of sea life + corals at this beach. The snorkeling guide might ask you to pay extra for which he will take you further - pay up n experience the magical sea life You don't need to carry any food. Lot of food vendors (fruits, juice, chats) are available there. "
