A great beach, it was named "Best Beach in Asia" by Time in 2004. Three elephants walk briskly along the white sandy beach most days, the females occasionally splashing in the shallows, then head into the trees for their daily watering. The bull elephant stops at the local spa and was fondly bathed by his two faithful mahouts. Ashore, a great Italian restaurant. Fortunately, tourism here is low key, back-packer based and easy on the pocket. The local market town on Havelock Island is a delightful experience. Ginger spiced samosas, enjoy a glass of chai and stock up on fresh produce picked at local market gardens.

Havelock #7 beach often has great waves, just perfect for boogie boarding and body surfing. Catch a few waves and chill out before late afternoon fishing. However, arriving by dinghy on this beach is often challenging. Stripping off to minimum clothes becomes the norm, pull the dinghy up above the high tide mark. Later spray on lotion to ward off the sand flies and relax! It is still a favorite anchorage.
