    For Me it Was OK OK Beach. Though Its Beautiful but there are no facilities for tourists. They only have seating arrangements, a small park , changing room and 2,3 dhabas near the beach. Also there are no shacks and other water sports facilities at the beach, you can only relax and enjoy the beauty. I had expected something else from this beach. It was not a good experience here. We felt quite boring due to lack of facilities and activities. It’s not for those who loves Beach and Beer and activities.

    One of the best beach i have ever been too. We planned honeymoon last year in June. Radhanagar Beach in Havelock is a real beach gem, something that will sway away your mind once you get the view of the beach from the road leading to the beach. The beach is quite clean and amdist the lap of nature. A perfect spot for honeymooners to enjoy their holidays. I think the beach is still in its original form since there are not many development in the area and the charm of the beach is still intact. A must visit beach on your trip to Andaman islands.

    After hearing so much about Radhanagar Beach in Havelock as one of the most beautiful beaches in Asia. We decided to visit Andaman Islands in FEB 2016 . We were six people from Colombo and stayed for 7 nights in Andaman. And believe me Havelock Islands were the best part of our holidays. Radhanagar Beach holds the most important and unforgettable experience for us. Yes it is one of the most beautiful beach in Asia and world. It’s huge, clean and peaceful. Though there are not much facilities at the beach but you can do lot of things at the beach. We played volleyball, relaxed at the beach, enjoyed picnic, watched sunset. This amazing beach have given us some wonderful memories to cherish. A must visit place in Andaman Islands.

    It’s an amazing beach and the best beach in India in terms of natural beauty and cleanliness. Though there are no water sports facilities at the beach which will be quite disappointing to many tourists who looks for water sports in such a beach. But i think these things are the only one which have kept its original beauty still the same. I would love to visit this beautiful beach again.
