Radhanagar beach

If you come to the Andamans, you are unlikely to miss a landmark like Radhanagar Beach. Time magazine ranked him as one of the best in Asia. Fairytale beauty, impeccable cleanliness and pleasant tranquility are the indisputable advantages of this beach.

Beach description

The vast expanses of pristine white sand, emerald blue waves with necklaces of white foam, lush greenery along the edge of the coastline – this is what Radhanagar looks like. It is located on the west coast of Havelock – the largest island of the Andaman archipelago.

The sand strip curved by the crescent moon has a total length of 2 kilometers and an average width of 30 to 40 meters. Due to its impressive size and relative isolation, the beach is never crowded with vacationers. Sand, white and very fine, resembling friable powder, is one of the main treasures of Radhanagar beach. It is also famous for its convenient gentle slope.

The lush green trees that border the coastline offer tourists the opportunity to relax, enjoying the tranquility and charm of nature. A breathtaking view of the sunset will be a great end to a serene day spent on the beach.

Radhanagar is known as the best water sports venue in Andaman. Fans of diving and snorkeling are attracted by the magical world of the underwater kingdom of the Bay of Bengal – marvelous coral gardens and phenomenal volcanic terraces filled with marine life (rays, butterflies, stars, lions, crabs). However, swimming and diving are not allowed after 5 pm due to high waves during high tides, which can be dangerous.
