One of the best things of Andaman is it does not come with the normal, otherwise blue, black waters and yellowish grainy sand beaches like the most other parts of India. Another great thing is that it does not have a shortage of the blue sea and white powdery sand beach combinations. 🙂
In fact, one of the beaches in Havelock is among one of the best beaches in Asia, and why.. In the tour of Andaman, if I do not mention Radhanagar, it would be unfair to the island, and Enakshi is never too cruel to be unfair.. 🙂
So on the day after visiting Kalapathhar and Vijaynagar beaches in Havelock, we go to Radhanagar, around 10 in the morning. One look at the beach, and time stops. A long, flat beach, with a shoreline that looks like a well-cut necklace, it is a beauty. in the entire trip, we could find several beaches and before coming here, I was expecting a rather hyped beach filled with selfie mania struck tourists , eateries, beach shacks and what not…but it is different, this beach.
Everywhere one goes to in Andaman, one cannot help noticing that the tourist spots are very well maintained, well decorated, in fact. The facilities for the tourists are well maintained in there as well, and made from the indigenous material , like wood from nearby. Authority has
made sure they are biodegradable as well. Radhanagar beach is no exception. It has its fare share of the seating areas, shades, carefully made thatched roof huts, just off the beach. The beach also has separate shower are and well maintained toilette complexes. So one has ample facilities for taking a shower after swimming and the beach remains clean as well. Bravo! 🙂
Addition to the huts and shelters, there are some high platforms in the beach, very Baywatch style… 😀 And there were life guards as well on all the beaches…real life Indian baywatch 😉 And, as everywhere in Andaman, a crocodile alert sign as well. Eh…friendly crocodiles…here boy! 😛
We enjoyed the beach, walked some and saw some..soaked up the sun from the Baywatch platform… 😀
Had a delicious lunch and went straight to the jetty for the connecting ferry to Neil island, where fate awaited me with some beautiful , calm sights of the island…and a broken (read fractured) foot… 😛
