Radhanagar beach is the most famous beach on the west coast of Havelock Island. It is a bit like the Kauai’s north shore beach where you have mountains form a backdrop for the beach.
Day trippers to Havelock island from Port Blair visit this beach, spend the day, snorkel and beach bum before going back. Unfortunately due to ferry timings they cannot enjoy the spectacular sunset from this beach.
We rented a bike and drove to the beach. There is virtually no traffic on the beach so it was fairly safe. Varun was thrilled to ride a bike – his first.
We drove to the beach, played in the sand, took photos and came back! The shades of reds, yellows and oranges and the pink afterglows were stunning. And the reflection in water made the Andaman sea glow.
Driving back in the dark after sunset was a bit tricky especially since our bike’s lights didn’t work. But we found a couple of bikers who rode ahead of us to provide light. Everyone who has been to Radhanagar beach raves about it. Don’t miss it if you plan to go to Havelock island.
