The Kalapathar Beach is a small quaint beach in the Kalapathar Village, Swaraj Dweep. It is a beautiful beach with silky golden sands, blue waters, and lush green trees around. This beach is not a very popular destination and is secluded most of the time because there are no water sport activities that are available here. The way towards the beach is a very beautiful one; you can catch glimpses of the stunning coastline. The beach goes just by its name numerous black rocks are present inside the water and on the shore as well.
The black rocks are the reason why swimming is prohibited on this beach. This is the beach is just the right place to relax and spend some time with nature as this place is not at all crowded. The remains of the trees that were uprooted during the 2004 tsunami are still scattered on the shore making the beach even more attractive.
You can take tiny strolls or long soulful walks along the shore and enjoy the marvelous view of the beach. You can carry hammocks and tie it around the trees lay on it and enjoy the sight of the foamy waves coming forward and retreating to the sea.
Since water sport activities aren’t available here it makes the beach less populated but water sports are not only what you come to Andaman for. Take a break from the ordinary and go spend some time alone staring at the tides and breathing in some fresh air away from the pollution and population.
