Visit Asia’s best beach!
Stroll by the beach, and enjoy the sunrise and sunset while at Havelock. Obviously, this goes without saying. But, what we want to emphasize upon is the most special Radhanagar Beach, which has been awarded as “Asia’s Best Beach” in 2004 and “World’s 7th Best Beach by Time Magazine!
Get deep down the sea
For those looking for an amazing diving experience, fulfill your dream while you are at Havelock. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or expert, you can have equal opportunities of diving deep down the sea to explore various bedrock structures, corals, reefs, ship wrecks, and a myriad of aquatic species like shrimps, crabs, pipe fish, snappers, barracuda, and eagle rays. The best locations to experience scuba diving in Havelock include the Elephant Beach, The Wall, Seduction Point, Barracuda City, Aquarium, Lighthouse, and Mac Point.
Enjoy the shallow waters
For those too scared to try scuba diving, snorkeling is for you, where you can have a chance to explore vivid coral structures and amazing marine life without going too deep. Elephant Beach is the best snorkeling spot with its pristine waters and crystal clear sea waves. You can view a variety of marine species like Hog fish, Red Hind, and Leafy Sea Dragon while you snorkel in the shallow waters.
Experience walking under the sea
How about walking under the sea? Sounds amazing, doesn’t it!? Instead of swimming and diving, you can simply stand between and interact with the aquatic flora and fauna, and tread between the corals and amazing fish species with underwater walking activities. The best place for this activity is at the Elephant Beach.
Havelock is becoming one of the most popular kayaking destinations too! You can go kayaking through the dense lush mangroves and backwaters surrounding the islands. Explore the mangroves through kayaking, maneuvering through aerial roots called pneumatophores.
Elephant Beach with its white sand and crystal clear waters is a 20 minute ride from Havelock Island Jetty. You can go trekking through the dense forest to reach the beach to experience an amazing trekking opportunity amidst the island landscape. However, if you are visiting during the monsoons, you can take up a boat ride instead, to be safe from the dangers of the damp and slippery forests.
These are just the highlights of all that you can do at Havelock. There is so much more that you can do here, after you are done with these activities and have enough time left. You can rent a bike and go exploring the island on your own, without anyone being able to disturb your privacy. You can also book a charter boat and go island hopping. You can also go game fishing. The list just goes on and on. So, if you want to experience all of what we say and more don’t forget to book a ferry to Havelock after landing at Port Blair!
