How To Reach Elephant Beach From Havelock Island
The Elephant beach can be reached in two ways, one way is by taking a boat from the Havelock Island jetty to the beach and the other is by a trek. Most people prefer a boat ride to the Elephant beach.
Elephant Beach By Boat From Havelock Jetty
You can take a fiber boat from the Havelock dock to reach the Elephant Beach which takes you just 20-30 minutes.
Daily hundreds of travelers move towards Elephant Beach to embark on the most memorable coral island trips. The boats are frequently available at certain time slots. This trip is difficult to be booked on the spot because the permits and boats are pre-booked one day in advance.
Besides, the slots may get missed. Make sure you have pre-planned to visit this place and get your boat tickets reserved in advance. Please note that on any given day only a limited number of boats can travel to Elephant Beach.
Elephant By Trekking Through the Jungle
You can ditch the boats and take the trekking trail to reach Elephant Beach. The path of woods is a beautiful one with lots of trees, birds, insects, and reptiles too. People hardly opt for the trekking trail and go for the boat rides most of the time. The walk to the beach is an amazing feeling for trekking enthusiasts as you reach the shore; the view of the beach from between the trees is a stunning one. However, the trek option is not suggested if you are traveling with kids or elderly people who face difficulty in walking as the trekking trail is not very smooth for them.
If you go by trek, the return has to be by trek only. So make sure you plan to trek only if you are comfortable to do so for both ways.
