beach, Havelock island, Andaman islands
Elephant beach is a secluded beach with clear blue waters and sugary white sand. Ancient trees cast plenty of shadow and there are some old ones lying around the shore making the beach look more enchanting. Unfortunately, the beach is a fraction of what it used to be, as the shoreline was largely swept away by the 2004 tsunami. The corals here remain one of the best on the island with the reef being close to the shore, making this an excellent spot for snorkelling.
It is essential to bring your own snorkel, as the underwater world truly is amazing. It can get crowded specially when sea-walking and snorkelling tours take place but one can always find their own special secluded spot.
In high season there are couple of vendors selling fresh fruits and coconuts, one can even find some water and snacks on the crowded part of the beach. Apart from this, no other facilities are available here.
