At a distance of 65 km from Port Blair Central Bus Stand (road + ferry) and 11 km from Havelock Ferry Ghat, Radhanagar Beach, also known as Beach #7, is situated on the south coast of Havelock Island and is the most famous Andaman Beach. Radhanagar Beach is counted among the top 10 beautiful beaches of Asia and among best beaches in the world by Time Magazine.

The most visited place in Andamans, Radhanagar is a long white sandy beach that sprawls across 2 km length and an average width of 30 to 40 m. Known for its picturesque sunset, white sand and turquoise blue waters, the beach is a very popular hub lying on the western coast of Havelock Island. The sand is white and very fine in grain. The lush and verdant trees on the side of beach offer tourists an opportunity to unwind and relish the serenity and nature's charm. The breathtaking sight of sunset on this beach makes the tourists forget all the woes of life.

Due to its reputation and popularity one would expect large crowd of tourists rushing to the beach, but amazingly the Radhanagar mostly remains isolated and secluded. The beach is also very safe for swimming. There are no water sports but it is known to be one of the best places for nature lovers as it offers a wide range of flora and fauna. It is also a great place to spend some quality time with family and friends.

The Havelock Island can be reached from Port Blair using government-operated ferries and private cruises. There are also helicopter services. From Havelock Ferry Ghat, one can take a local bus or hire an auto or rent a bike or bicycle to reach Radhanagar Beach.

The turquoise blue sea and white sand make this beach a perfect spot to bask in the midst of nature's bounty. Radhanagar Beach is positioned just 7 kilometres away from Vijaynagar Beach and Dolphin Yatri Niwas and about 12 kms from Havelock Island.
