HolidayIQ Reviewer Akash Banerjee says, “Pristine white sand Beach and nothing else Havelock Island is a 2-hour journey by ship from Port Blair. I toured the Island as part of my honeymoon package, designed by M/S Experience Andamans, Port Blair. ... The beach is wonderful and is a picture to behold. The sunset at the beach is a wonderful sight. There was a dearth of activities when I was there but I guess they pick up during the on-season.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Gupta says, “Clean beach with white sand Beach is meant for people who want to be away from the maddening crowds and the chaos associated.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kanishka Batra adds, “Beautiful blue beach. As far as your eyes can go you will see blue water. With a white sand beach, the best time to visit Alleppey Beach would be the sunset or the sunrise. There are not many shops around at the place and it doesn’t have any eatery to offer at the beach. Atleast not during the day time when we visited it. But as soon as you cross the road there are small shops selling nice food. There is a huge parking also available right across the road so going in your own car shouldn’t be a problem ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sumeet Samat shares “This beach had amazingly clear water. We decided to step in and enjoy the water for some time. There was a sandy island a few feet away from the shore all surrounded by water. We decided to head there. But we had to wade through knee deep water. And the water was absolutely clear and gave us complete visibility of the floor. You can take a ride in the glass bottom boats here and they will take you a little inside the sea to see the corals - yes the water is that clear.” Read Full Review

It is a nice one to visit which is a long stretch of white sand with beach shacks, food stalls, restaurants, pubs, and bars. It is also famous for the nearby "Our Lady of Mercy church".
