HAVELOCK - RADHANAGAR BEACH (OR BEACH NO. 7) Now after breakfast, go for Radhanagar Beach (or even Beach No. 7) is the gem in the center of Havelock Island. It's rated among the top-ranked shores by several travelers. Situated in the western side of this island, it moves out from the bunch. There's not any mean of seeing Havelock Island without seeing Radha Nagar Beach. It supplies panoramic view to its customers. Dinner and stay overnight in the Resort.
We ate local food including fish and crab(which I only ate). We had an amazing cup of powdered milk tea as there were no cattle in Havelock island so available milk is only in powered form .We bought locally grown bananas and carrots sizing 10 inch too. After this walked to our hotel rooms and we planned to view the sunrise early morning. Among 4 of us my dad was the most energetic person . He used to make all the weird and vexatious plans and even executes them easily.Again next morning my dad woke up early and was trying to get us off from beds, soon, we all woke up after his constant nagging. We hired two scooters and made our way to see the sunrise , we were driving at a low pace so as to absorb nature's divine beauty, we all were surprised to see lush vegetation and greenery all over the place. Finally we reached a raised platform from where we cheer the beauty of mother nature.
Radhanagar beach is one of the best beaches in Asia. It’s a must visit while in Havelock Islands and a 12km bus ride. The white sand and emerald blue waves with the astounding sunset view makes it a perfect combination to enjoy your evening. You must carry spare clothing as the waves are irresistible and will make you want to take a swim and enjoy the waves.
Radhanagar Beach:: lies on the south coast of Havelock Island. It is about 12 kilometers from the Islands ferry pier. Radhanagar is a Grade A beach of outstanding quality. This beach is also rated as one of the best beaches in Asia by TIME Magazine.
Next was the Radhanagar beach. This is an official beach for swimming and having fun in the water. There are Life Guards around and small utilities have been created for public convenience.
Asia's Third most beautiful beach according to Tripadvisor rating. Just an hour ride from Coral Reef Hotel Havelock.
Post our meal, we made a quick stop at the Kala Pathar Beach before heading to witness the mesmerizing sunset at the Radhanagar Beach. Radhanagar Beach was voted the best beach in Asia by Time Magazine in 2004. Not just this beach, most of the beaches in Andaman are freakishly clean despite being frequented by so many tourists.
Don't miss it out Havelock island's Cristal clear water I can spend whole day in that water...amazing feeling with large waves.... snorkeling with self snorkeling kit...
4. Witness the sunset at Radha Nagar beach – HavelockTouted to be the best beach of Asia 2004 by Time’s magazine, this beach is the best place to witness sunset. It will be crowded in the evenings but you won’t feel a thing coz the beauty of the place is enough to engulf you and keep you gawking. Make sure you try some of the fruit chats available at the beach especially Starfruit & Papaya.
We then made our way to Radha Nagar beach (voted the best beach in Asia by Time in 2004). It’s a vast expanse of sand sheltered by huge trees and dotted with hawkers selling you tit-bits.
About the beachSunset view is awesome here. Its has a big seashore and very soft sand. The beach is all clean and you will find some guards around for safety. This beach really have big waves to watch. It was getting darker so we headed towards our hotel. As weather condition was not favorable so elephant beach was closed, we had to skip that.DAY 3It was 5.00 in the morning we went for morning walk thereby we saw a cycle rental shop. we decided to paddle to kalapathar beach. The lady charged us 200 for 3 hours. It took us 35 min to reach there. It is famous for sunrise.
It is an overrated beach and attracts too much crowd due to it’s popularity.Try catching the sunset here if you chance to visit this beach.The only best part for me was the bengali style papdi chaat outside for 30₹.
Radhanagar Beach, Andaman and Nicobar IslandsKnown as one of the best beaches in Asia, Radhnagar Beach is well known for its pristine waters, alluring charm and beautiful sunsets on this lovely beach. As you may know, Andaman and Nicobar islands are well known for its serene beaches and blue sea; Radhanagar is one of the best beaches here!
On day two,we went to Havelock Island and spend our day in the most cleanest beach called Radhanagar Beach. It was awesome.
1.) RADHANAGAR BEACH - Havelock Island
Watching the enthusiastic faces brim with joy as the subtle rays of the warm light fell on them made me smile! One can have a lovely time amidst the waves, bathe, laze around, take a small walk, or simply sit down to watch the sunset with their loved ones. Either way, it’s going to soothe your jaded senses and give you innumerable beautiful memories to cherish for a lifetime!
It somehow had to top my list as experiencing a lovely evening at Asia’s best beach was unarguably heavenly! Yes, you heard that right! Radhanagar beach is not just Asia’s best but also stands amongst the World’s top 10 best beaches. Once you go there, you’ll fall in love with everything the place has to offer. It is absolutely isolated from all the chaos and worldly madness. It's all about white sand and crystal clear water. So serene, so beautiful!
Pay an Early Morning visit to the Radhanagar Beach on the western coast, also known as Number 7 Beach, which is one of the most popular beaches on Havelock and was named "Best Beach in Asia" by Time in 2004. Later, take a ferry back to Port Blair.
The Radhanagar beach is highly recommended too as it is breathtakingly beautiful, serene, and calm—it’s also a great place to watch the sunset daily at about 5 pm. Located on the western coast of the island, it has been voted as the best beach in Asia by Time magazine (2004). A 2-km long crescent-shaped beach with soft silver sand and turquoise blue waters, it is a popular beach indeed.
This beach is ranked as the best beach in Asia and it does live up to the expectations. The water is very clear here. It is about 8 km from the centre of the island. We enjoyed swimming under the sun, which later gave us sunburns. Outside the beach, you will find fruit stalls. Star fruit and the wild orange were the new fruits we tasted here.
Day 3Radhanagar BeachEarly in the morning, by 5 am, we reached the best beach of India, Radhanagar beach. Long stretches of fine white sand and no one around, only you and nature’s leap, is a great experience to have. The loudest sound, you will hear here is of roaring waves. This beach is a very beautiful site for sunset as well.
This pristine private beach is sheltered by a thick forestcover on one side, making it suitable for those who want to give swimming in the buff , ago. You’ll also hit jackpot when it comes to snorkeling and scuba-diving, the island is bestowed with some of the whitest sands and clearest waters.
Start​ the day with sunrise at Radhanagar and proceeded for water activities after breakfast .Water activities like scuba are best if done in early morning to get a good view .Enjoy lunch and proceed for elephanta beach .Enjoy some more water activities .Proceed back for Havelock before dark.Try local food.
We reached Havelock around 2 in the afternoon. I have visited quite a few sea beaches in the past but the Radhanagar beach was the most beautiful beach I had ever seen. The sand was white a silky soft, the waters were blue like sapphire, sparkling in the sunlight and the palm trees swinging in the gentle breeze! The view was mesmerizing! I couldn't resist myself and ran towards the waters to take a dip in the white drift of the blue waves.
This was the first class of our open water course. I met our Dive Instructor Vidit and my dive buddies. Before learning anything, we had to give a swim test for 200m. You can choose the stroke that you are most comfortable with for the test. Post that, we put on our masks, fins and snorkel. We learnt how to breathe through our mouth using our snorkels, clear our masks underwater, the right way to fin for Scuba Diving and how to put on our BC (scuba jackets). This was definitely a great introduction class to Scuba Diving. Post that, we had our equipment briefing. We were taught how to assemble and disassemble our equipment which is quite easy if practiced enough. As part of the course, there is also theory that needs to be covered. We had to watch 6 videos related to the 6 sections as part of the SSI course. At around 2:30 is when I headed to Radhangar beach with my trip buddies. Radhangar beach is about 20-30 mins away from Diveindia and the rickshaw takes about 700 return. We enjoyed amazing Prawns Masala, Prawns Curry, Appalam and rice at a small restaurant called Maya (try not to miss this).Radhangar is one of the prettiest beaches. The water is absolutely clear and serene. If you get a chance, watch the sunset there.Sunset in Andamans is at 5:30pm post which it gets dark.We headed back towards DiveIndia. After a quick shower and some rest, we headed to Fat Martin's. We ordered the cold coffee, iced tea, peanut butter Nutella shake and squid masala. Since we didn't enjoy the food much and were still hungry, we found our way to Anju Coco. This is definitely a recommended place to eat. The Prawns, Fish and apple pie were definitely good..
