"Radha Nagar (No. 7) Beach" Havelock Island Things to Do Tip by illumina

Havelock Island Things to Do: 9 reviews and 30 photos


If you want to go and do some proper swimming, Radha Nagar is the place to head for. While beautiful, most of the other beaches have very shallow, coral-filled waters, but Radha Nagar shelves off quite quickly, so is the perfect depth, and even gets some pretty big waves if you fancy body-boarding or surfing. You'd have to bring your own equipment for that though, as there's none in any of the shops on Havelock.

There are a couple of beach hut and cabin 'hotels' right next to Radha Nagar, but they're pricier than many of the others on the island, and a long way from the main village. You're better off doing what we did - staying closer to the village / harbour area, and renting a scooter to get to No 7 and and other beaches. There are buses running on the island too, but I don't know how frequently they go or how much they cost.

There's a small line of shops and cafes at the entrance to the beach where you can get snacks, cups of tea, meals and even books!
