Experienced snorkelling instructors will be present to guide and assist you at every turn. After snorkelling, you can also spend time sun-bathing at the beach, with beautiful views of the sea.


Elephant Beach is a soft and sandy beach on the coast of Havelock Island. The secluded beach is accessible only via a boat ride from Havelock jetty or a 2-hr trek across tropical rainforests. The pristine, turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea at Elephant Beach make for one of the best spots for snorkelling and swimming. The underwater visibility is relatively high, providing exquisite and unfiltered views of the sea. The silver white sand of the beach, peppered with the trees of a tropical forest, make for a great spot to kick back and relax after half an hour in the Andaman Sea.
