Radhanagar Beach (Beach #7)
Radhanagar Beach also takes the alternative name of Beach No 7. Its white sands, which gently slope into the waters of the Bay of Bengal to a backdrop of verdant forest, are regularly voted one of the best in Asia and the world.
Radhanagar Beach lies on the western side of Swaraj Dweep, which is still often known by its colonial era name of Havelock Island, part of the Andaman archipelago. Facing south, it is at the end of one of only two main roads on the island. The island itself is far out into the Bay of Bengal closer to Myanmar (Burma) than India which governs it.
At times after rain the beach can be split into two by a river running down from the hills, and is overlooked by a Hindu temple at its easternmost extent. There are no restrictions to swimming here, though its recommended swimmers don’t head out further than ten metres, where the currents pick up. Lifeguards are on duty throughout the day.
When it comes to facilities, Radhanagar Beach has pay-to-use showers. There are also lockers should you want to leave your things safely when you head out into the light blue waters.
