Govind Nagar Beach 

The first location on our list of best beaches in Andaman and Nicobar Islands is the one that is home to our Symphony Palms property. For those of you who have been looking for places to go on underwater adventures, this beach is widely regarded as the place to go scuba diving in Havelock Island. People of all experience levels can witness some spectacular sights at nearby Nemo's Reef. Visitors are advised to only indulge in sub-aquatic adventures under the supervision of a trained professional.

Radhanagar Beach

Arguably the most famous beach in Andaman, the picturesque beauty of Radhanagar Beach is shaped by the surrounding coconut palms and the lush foliage from the nearby tropical trees. Explorers are allowed to bring their own food to the beach. So pack a couple of sandwiches to munch on as you witness the gorgeous sunset after a long day of splashing around! If the beach seems too crowded for you, you can visit the breathtaking Neil's Cove, which is only a short walk away. It is a lagoon made up of crystal-clear water, enabling visitors to witness the vibrant marine life in its natural habitat.

Tucked away into a little corner in Port Blair, Wandoor Beach is an hour away from Symphony Samudra Beachside Jungle Resort and Spa. The pristine shore is one of the best beaches in Andaman. It is part of Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park, which requires an entry permit and prohibits visitors from bringing any plastic objects into the premises. Travelers are advised to bring their own food and drink in eco-friendly containers. There have also been sightings of crocodiles in the surroundings, so be on the lookout for them!
