  • Corals

    Travellers throng the beaches of Havelock for seeing the spectacular coral reefs and rare marine life. It is advisable not to break or even touch the corals. Permits need to be taken from the Fisheries’ Department to even carry a dead coral from Havelock. Our suggestion – preserve ocean and marine life.

Be prepared

  • Sand Flies

    These flying insects can cause skin infections. Protect yourself by using an insect repellent when outdoors.

  • No Nightlife

    If you’re a hardcore party animal, then Havelock might not live up to your expectations. After dark, activities are limited to walks on the beach.

  • Lifeguard and Safety

    There aren’t many lifeguards around the beach so be cautious when entering the sea. The currents are sudden, especially at Radhanagar beach so don’t wade out too far.

  • Intermittent Air Conditioning

    Air conditioning can be inconsistent in the hotels due to erratic power supply.

Describing It

Havelock is the hidden jewel of the Andaman Islands. A one-and-a-half hour ferry ride from Port Blair covering 54 kilometres on the sea, Havelock will welcome you with its silver beaches, crystal clear waters and lush green forests. An eco-tourism hub, Havelock will surprise you with its pristine surroundings. While in Havelock, swim in the warm tropical sea, drink sweet coconut water and enjoy fresh fruits and seafood. Far removed from commercialisation, return to the lap of nature.

Undoubtedly, Havelock’s most popular beach is the Radhanagar beach. Once rated as Asia's fourth best beach by TIME magazine, tourists throng the area for scuba diving. Nearby, the Elephant beach is the perfect place for snorkelling and sighting beautiful corals.

Havelock is where time stands still for you to take it all in!
