About Elephant Beach
Elephant beach is a secluded beach with clear blue waters and sugary white sand. Ancient trees cast plenty of shadows 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 snorkeling.
It is essential to bring your own snorkel, as the underwater world truly is amazing. It can get crowded especially when sea-walking and snorkelling tours take place but one can always find their own special secluded spot.
In high season there are a 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. Snirkelling
How to Reach Elephant Beach?
At Havelock, Elephanta beach lies on the western coast and can be reached by either taking a speed boat or by trekking through a forest trail. The speed boats leave from the Havelock jetty and take about 20 minutes (8.7kms) to reach Elephant Beach. For those who don’t mind a brisk 2.5km trek through the jungle, a path opens up on the way to Radhangar beach and you can take that instead of the ferry.
This trek should take about 30 minutes. Guides are available at the entrance if you need one. Carry water and wear comfortable footwear.
