Andaman Snorkeling :
If you want to enjoy the exotic marine life of Andaman and Nicobar island, go for snorkeling, offering experience of the lifetime. Kalipur near Diglipur North Andaman, the Island off the coast of Pristine Beach resort (200-300 rupee huts. Best beach snorkeling place I visited in the Andamans. Very diverse too, great coral between on the beach side of the island on the far side are rocks which go down quite deep with lots of fish especially the northeast corner. Saw sting rays, lion fish, sea snake, octopus, several Giant Parrot fish about 1.5 m long, small barracudas, lots of fish of all sizes. Sea turtles are often seen here as well but I didn't see one
Lalaji beach, Long island (1.5 hour walk from Guest house either along the cost or through the forest) beautiful beach for one lined with a coconut grove, on the left side is a very nice coral reef. I didn't see many big fish but lots of small ones and the coral is very nice there. Plus very easy snorkeling since the reef is shallow and you can walk out on the nice sandy bottom of the beach.
Havelock, the coral is better at Elephant beach, but not as good as Kalipur of Lalaji, I saw more larger fish out on the right and left side of the lagoon at the end of beach 7 than Elephant. Off beach 7 I saw Giant Parrot fish and a sea turtle, in addition to the usual stuff. Guesthouse plug, full power guesthouse on beach seven is a great place to stay.
