The Havelock Island is a pristine natural paradise with white beaches, clear blue waters, lush forests, rich coral reefs and multi-coloured aquatic life. One of the more populated islands in the Andaman Group with an area of 113 sq km, Havelock is located 39 km north-east of Port Blair. A popular tourist stopover, it has three major beaches   --  Radhanagar Beach,  Vijaynagar Beach,  Elephant Beach.

The Radhanagar Beach, on the south coast, is about 2 km in length and is popular for its white and very fine sand. It is so beautiful and clean that just walking on the beach with the water swirling at your ankles can put both your mind and body at rest. It has been rated as one of the best beaches in Asia by the TIME magazine.

The Vijaynagar Beach, on the east coast, is a white stretch lined with mahua trees, whose trunks grow in a tangle on the ground for many feet before they rise up vertically. The beach is ideal for swimming and watching marine life. Kayaking, birdwatching and trekking are some of the other activities one can indulge in.

The Elephant Beach is perfect for snorkeling because the shallow water brings the coral reef very close to the surface. 

The Kalapather Beach, about 12 km from the Havelock jetty, remains largely unexplored and is perfect for those seeking to unwind while lazily watching a sunset. The rocks on the beach are all black in colour.
