Havelock is widely famous for its Radhanagar Beach. We toured Andamans in Aug, 2013 and soon after visiting Radhanagar, I was in awe of the place.This post is a photolog and incase you want more information about the place then do refer to my previous posts. Radhanagar beach is located a few kilometres from the Havelock jetty and it took half an hour to reach the same. Overnight stays however are good for honeymooners and beach enthusiasts.
I had just arrived and a mere look at the beach is what made me fall with it! Let me describe what Radhanagar beach was like. The place was super clean and had a handful of tourists. Radhanagar beach was guarded by police officials who were also responsible for the safety of the tourists. Next to the beach was a famous hotel chain which provided accommodation in beautiful huts made of bamboos and natural products. The place was serene and calm.
The view of the blue sees was amazing and I had never seen such a beautiful shade of water. The sand was perfect and was near to white. Radhanagar beach also had tourist huts made completely of bamboos. Radhanagar beach is not for the ones who are looking for some action. The beach doesn’t have any facilities for snorkelling, scuba diving or boating.
Everything was just the way I wanted to. It felt as if the place was just not on this planet. P-E-R-F-E-C-T holiday destination. As I write these lines, I find myself lost in the picturesque beach and just want to fly back to the place. Radhanagar beach finds a place on the ‘Top 10 Beaches in the World’ list. And surely it proved itself!
Every time I pointed my camera I found something unique to capture. As my family was busy playing around with the waters, I decided to walk around the beach.
The long stretch of sand attracted me and I wanted to go till the very end. As I progressed I found out beautiful landscapes on the right and the turquoise coloured waters.
I also found a tree house which was the property of Barefoot Andamans.
The view from up there was as beautiful as it could get. In totality, Radhanagar beach was just awesome and one would surely love it the most in the entire package that Andamans offer. I’d be glad if you could share your favourite image from the above lot. Bon Voyage Ghumakkars. :)
Fabulous photos of Radhanagar beach and a wonderful Andaman series, Naman. Nowhere in India can one find such an incredible mix of green woods, pristine white sands and turquoise blue waters in such proximity as in Havelock.
Thanks a lot sir. Indeed, Andaman is one of its kind. :D
My favourite is also your favourite. :-)
I am glad that you liked the snap. Thanks a lot :D
Fab pics but I guess the content of the log has some overlap with the previous story or may be I am getting the feeling of Deja-vu.
Thankyou sir. Agreed, It was copied from my previous post as I was a bit lazy! :P
