Stay options vary from 2k to 10K+ per day - choose according to your budget. Do visit Samudrika museum to understand Andaman better. Skip the english sound and light show as the dialogue is drowned out by the background music in many places and do the Hindi version if you understand Hindi. I used the services of this agency and was satisfied.

Each beach has its charm. Do visit the natural bridge in Laxmanpur beach 2 and engage a guide to show the marine life - it is worth it. Laxmanpur beach 1 for sunset, Sitapur beach for Sunrise and Bharatpur for water sports. Decide on the basis of cloud and visibility.

Day 3: Niel Island to Havlock Island : Evening Radhanagar Beach : (N/s : Havlock)
----Q: On arrival day Kalaphatar Beach can be covered ?
Cover Kalapathar typically when the tide is not too low or too high - guess 1330 - 1500 would be ideal. Leave for Radhanagar and reach before 1600 so that you can explore the beach before the sun sets around 1700.

Visibility determines the fun you have while doing scuba/snorkeling/seawalking. Check before you embark on these. You will finish by 1200-1400 and try to visit Govindnagar and Vijaynagar beaches definitely.

I cant answer your other questions as I restricted myself to Neil and Havelock and enjoyed them much.
