Its a small beach at one end of the island.Less crowded and natural beach with white sand and waters with different shades of blue .Can be compared with some of the best beaches of the world in terms of beauty.

It is one of the best beaches in the world, if not the best. I have been to beaches in Hawaii, Caribbean, Peurto-Rico, Phuket, Langkawi etc. This belongs right amongst the best. Crystal clear green water with white sand. Picture-perfect. Hardly any waves and no crowd. Fantastic place to unwind.

As mentioned it's like a picture perfect beach. Enjoy your time there and avoid swimming because this place seems rock heavy and u can get seriously hurt if not professional swimmer

Much to see and explore and enjoy! There's much more than beaches on Havelock Island. I wish I had more time, was here only a couple of days.

Kalapattar beach is near Havelok town. There we can see dark black stones where water gushes. Hence it is called as kalapattar. I think that once it was a beach of coral reef for unknown reasons the coral have become dead and stones are out of water. There is no scenic beauty here. We can see the local fruit pandas... More
