“Go for the ride not the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

After you have been to Radha Nagar beach, no other beach would appeal so much. But one should go to Kala Pathar Beach for the pleasure of riding through the woods. Hire a bike and ride all the way to kala Pathar beach all along the sea. I bet you would want to do it again and again.

“Kaala Pathar Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

The Kalapathar beach is situated on one corner of Havelock Island. The beach gets its name from the surrounding village, which is Kalapathar Village and the black rocks (known as Kalapathar in Hindi) that adorn the coastline here.There will be very little crowd of tourists.If you want to take bath at this beach then you can but ladies beware as there are no changing rooms you have to return to your resorts and change.You can rent a two wheeler and have a visit at kaalapathar beach.Its not too far from havelock.As there are less crowds you can take your own time there and enjoy it.It is a very clean beach.If you want to stay there for long hours take some snacks with you and of course drinking water as there are no shops nearby to this beach.

“Very beautiful, not so clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

The Kaala Pathar beach is very comparable to the Radhanagar beach except that it is not very well maintained. The water is very murky and dirty right at the beach, something not very welcome for people like me who do not go beyond 10 feed :). Otherwise a beautiful beach, you should take a bike and ride along the beach making pit stops on the way. Some of the naturally bent trees look very beautiful.

“Untouched beautiful beach…Best way to spend a morning on beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

We visited this beach in morning and its really amazing untouched beach. Nothing special as such but very lonely and feel like our private beach. When we were on this beach there were hardly 3 couples. Good place for couple photo section. Tripod is needed as you won’t get any one to take your snaps or you have to wait.Very safe place but not a good for swimming.

We loved this beach so couples can think of this to spend good time with each other.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Go there in the morning when you will get very little crowd. There are stretches which are rocky, but you will be able to find safer places. You will feel as if you are enjoying the sea at your private beach.
