A secluded stretch along the enchantingly emerald sea, Elephant Beach is where you can actually get entertained by trained elephants. Trained in swimming, these gigantic creatures can take you under the water for a mind-blowing snorkelling experience. If serene and intriguing sea waves amuse you at the one end, there is unbound lush green fauna at the other. To top it all, one gets mesmerized by the constant chirping of birds found in huge variety at the island.
Apart from snorkelling and bird watching, the beach offers another great adventure of scuba diving. Scale the depth of the sea and discover some extremely enthralling corals. Riding glass-bottom boats can add another dimension to your experience here. Enjoy fresh coconut water, indulge in collecting seashells and the pristine beauty that the place boasts of.
An exciting way to approach the beach is through a jungle hike of about 30 min. from Radhanagar Beach. If you reach the eastern part of the island by road, it is better to hire a boat for accessing the beach.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands have no rail facility. The nearest railway station on the India’s mainland is at Paradip, which is more than 1,144 km. from Port Blair. Ships and cruise vessels can be used to access the beach from the mainland India.
Port Blair Airport is about 58 km. from the beach. From the airport, you can hire a taxi to reach the last accessible point from where you can walk to be at the beach.
