Saving up for your holidays? We have good news for you. TripAdvisor, a travel planning and booking site has announced the winners of its Travellers' Choice awards for beaches. And this is the list of the top 10 beaches in India

Radhanagar Beach – Havelock Island, Andaman and Nicobar Islands

The Time Magazine had listed it as one of the '7 best beaches in the world' a couple of years ago. And this pristine beach is the most popular on the island. It is not surprising that you will find it a bit crowded – but there is enough space for all – you just have to walk a little bit away from the main entry point.
