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.

I had never imagined I could enjoy myself so much in Andaman on a scuba diving adventure. Starting from the minute we were picked up from the hotel to the minute we finished our scuba diving, the experience was wonderful. Finding such great instructors and such amazing support at this rate was a pleasant surprise. We had superb support at every step of the diving. Being underwater was great. I loved that the team made us go into the shallow waters first as my wife was nervous about jumping into the deep ocean at once. Her fear went away with the shallow water diving and she had a great time. We also received amazing photos of our experience.

I wanted to go to Andaman in December 2016 and was searching for snorkelling activities there since I had heard it was the best sport there. I found this package where I could go and snorkel in Andaman for less than 2k. I jumped on the offer and I must say, I was not disappointed. The team was supportive from start to finish. The booking service was smooth and the guides in Andaman had good knowledge and were friendly as well. Though the activity was only for 30 minutes, I had a lot of fun in them.

Best combo offer I guess, we had so much fun doing trekking and snorkelling. First we started with our trekking activity through the mangrove forest. We could hear the chirping of birds and spotted few rare species of birds as well. We were accompanied by our guide Ravi, he was very well aware of the trekking routes. We reached Elephant beach and there we went for the snorkelling activity. After a short brief we went for this activity, it was really great, the waters were soo clear and we saw many fishes too. Really good package. Loved it.

My husband and I decided to go sea walking in Andaman but the timing was wrong. The day of our sea walking, it started raining badly, so the instructor called us to say that the day’s trip had to be cancelled. I was disappointed more than I can say. But soon we received another call from the Thrillophilia team saying that they would try to change the date of the activity. They even asked when it would suit us. I told them the date and they arranged a sea walking tour for us swiftly. good experience.. thanks

It was on August 2017, when I went for Andaman trip with my family. We did snorkeling and kayaking in Havelock Island. It was really a great adventure for all of us. We had a very good instructor and he was detailed about our whole activity. My 16 years old son had so much fun while doing Kayaking. Once we completed our kayaking we were taken for our snorkeling near the Lighthouse. The underwater world was full of colourful fishes and other marine creatures. Best time spent with family.

My biggest concern while thinking of sea walking was the safety. I was very afraid of being attacked by the underwater animals. When I expressed my concerns to the instructors, they were very patient and explained everything in detail. They assured me that safety was taken care of, and they were right. The walk was well managed and no animals attacked us. We could actually touch the fishes and the plants. It was beautiful. The photos are a great reminder of the time.

The price of the activity first attracted me. I had not come across such a reasonable sea walk package in my searches and I quickly went for it. It was a wonderful idea. The pick up and drop off was on time and the instructors were great. There were some other people in our group and one of them was feeling afraid before beginning. The instructors comforted her and helped her properly all the time during the sea walk. It was good to see.
