Best Things To Do in Havelock Island

Covered in beautiful beaches that run from shore to shore and surrounded by crystal clear waters that sparkle invitingly in the sun, Havelock Island is an Indian paradise. Colourful shallow corals which houses colourful schools of exotic fishes’ peep out daintily from the seas, while the sun shines brightly in the clear blue skies. Some of Andaman’s most popular places are to be found on Havelock Island. While Elephant Beach renowned for its shallow coral reefs near the shore and the variety of its adventure sports, Radhanagar Beach is famed for its magical sunsets. One of the best things to do in Havelock Island are its sunrises that can be experienced on Sitapur beach, which are altogether marvellous and memorable as well while those looking for some blessed solitude will find it on Laxmanpur Beach. Kala Pathar Beach presents an interesting contrast to the otherwise white sand landscape. To have all these beaches with their own unique characteristics on one single island is the great thing about Havelock Island. Since Havelock Island is a part of Ritchie’s Archipelago, it is extraordinarily rich in marine life, and therefore presents excellent diving and snorkelling opportunities. There are a great number of dive points close to the island that can capture the interest of both beginners and professionals alike.

Several dive schools on the beaches offer PADI courses too. Tourists can also enjoy Sea Walking which involves donning on suits and walking on the sea beds at depths of 25 metres or more. While Havelock Island features a great variety of resorts and hotels, camping on the island can be a source of everlasting joy. There is something extremely special about curling up next to a bonfire on the beach in front of your tents while the waves softly lap the shore and the stars twinkle overhead. This is one of the best things one can do on Andaman trip on Havelock Island at night, though engaging in night fishing on the silent waters follows close behind.
