Kalapathar Beach, Andaman Overview

Kalapathar beach is a long stretch of white silky sand with big black rocks beside the blue sea and is one the most popular beaches of Havelock Island. Being located on the one tip of Havelock Island, Kalapathar Beach is named after a Black Road (Kalapathar in Hindi) which runs parallel to the seashore. The beach is small but the way to the beach is very good. Mesmerizing views of sunset at this beach makes it a perfect destination to spend some peaceful time and also the beach is not so crowded which has kept it clean till date. The turquoise coloured water can actually be seen during the drive to the beach which makes it look even more mesmerizing. The black rocks the lie along the seashores make a bright contrast with silver sand. Green dense forests surround the beach from all the sides.

Being a relatively isolated and protected beach, Kalapathar does not have the usual shacks and resorts that other beaches do and hence can be visited as a stopover attraction. The whole beach is lined up with rich greenery and one of the best features about the beach is that it is comparatively silent and has less crowd which becomes a reason for why it sticks close to the visitor’s heart. As the number of people is lesser, Kalapathar Beach is very special for couples and families who would like to spend time in peace and utmost calmness.
