Havelock Island is beautiful island with a good proximity to Portblair. It took us 1.5 hrs to reach here through Makruzz.
It has many beaches, ones that we could visit
Radhanagar beach – Once awarded as best beach in Asia – 2004, its definitely worth a visit – specially if you have a good weather (not cloudy) for sunset.
Elephant beach – Good beach for water sports
Kalapathar beach – Excellent for photography

One of the best places for snorkeling. Even kids and elders can do it with ease. The view is breath taking. Liked the presence of coral and marine life adjacent to the shore. Did not like - no good toilets/ eating places.

Havelock is a beautiful Island which is connected by ferry from Port Blair.

It has three major beaches:

1. Elephant Beach - You can do water sports like snorkeling, banana boating, glass boating, scuba diving etc.

2. Radhanagar Beach - This beach has waves. Yes, it’s the only beach in Havelock which has waves. White sand, water as clean as crystal. It’s a beautiful location to view the sunset.

3. Kaala Patthar Beach - Nice beach even without waves but too hot even in the month of December.

we took a long walk on the beach away from the crowd that assembles near the boat landings... and it is an unbelievable sight. with massive trees growing to the sea or having fallen. postcards are made from such places.

If you love adventure, this is an ideal place. You can do snorkeling, scuba diving and see the beautiful corals and colorful fish, starfish. If you are lucky, you may get to see some creatures like octopus, small sharks etc.

If you are not so adventurous, you can jolly well sit in a boat with a glass bottom and see the corals, take videos.

If you do not like to do any of these activities, just enjoy a swim in the beautiful green waters, float on the waters like fish.

Overall, an excellent experience.
