Time to go to another beach which is once rated as the No. 1 beach in Asia by the Time magazine! Radhanagar beach, also known as Beach No. 7 in the Havelock Island, is the largest of the islands which comprise Ritchie’s Archipelago, a chain of islands to the east of Great Andaman in the Andaman Islands. It is on the south coast of Havelock Island is a beach of outstanding quality. It was pretty crowded by the time we reached.
At Radhanagar Beach, we got no time to breathe as we got soaked in the natural beauty. Not only does Radhanagar beach casted a spell over with emerald and indigo colors of the sea and soft powdery white sand, it transported us to a different world no sooner do we set foot there. The beach is flat and of a low gradient it continues for almost some 100 metres from the shore. Ideal place to play and swim! This beach is also famous for undersea activities and almost all the resorts in Havelock throws packages for the tourists.
This one is also perfect for lazy ones like me who just wants to sit, read a book and pass the time 🙂 One can just sit at the seaside and plunge oneself in the serene beauty all around; swaying palms, forests with branches swooping down intermittently to kiss the warm water, sea shells punctuating the white stretch of sand a few noisy sea-birds competing with parakeets. And not this alone, hills spring up at a distance – the sight better than any on a painter’s canvas.
Radhanagar beach has got good changing rooms and they were clean too. Time for our lunch; we had our lunch at a resort, where the food is ok-ok. Went back to our dolphin resort, loitered around the shore and took small naps before we set out for the next activity. The important thing is one should not miss the sunset at Havelock island and the best place to watch the sun set is the Island jetty. The beauty of the sky and the sea is unparalleled.
We took a walk along the roads of this beautiful island. There are lots of coffee corners, excellent seafood to gorge on and several local garment and trinket shops and Sahil and I brought some bright colored beach T-Shirts, while Harsha and Mounica settled out for some accessories 😉 . We had our dinner at the Barefoot resort, which is one of the best resorts in the island and probably the most known thing about this resort is the elephant ride in the sea-waters provided by them.
The food is great over here and the ambiance is simply awesome. The tree huts and restaurant with dim lights and the wide range of cuisines are amazing. We walked back to our resort and called it a day 🙂 🙂
