Nice beach with some snorkeling, to go there take the bus to beach #7, there is a big red green sign, you walk then for 30 to 40 minutes throu the jungle, don't take turns to the right (after crossing a little brooke half left) you will end in Mangrove swamp. After rain it is a difficult way use your oldest shoes. Snorkeling trips with 3 stops...more
Neil Island is more quiet and laidback then Havelock Island with some nice beaches and snorkeling. It's good the rent a bicycle, ar some resorts and at the market you can get them.1 sometimes 2 boats go there from Havelock Island and Port Blair, 195 or 250 Rupies depending on boat, 2.5 hours from both places. Leaving you can buy the ticket only on...more
A particularly nice thing for children, you can have a ride on an elephant on Radha Nagar Beach (no. 7). There is a little platform a little way along the beach from the entrance path - to the right - and you climb to that and then get into the howdah, which holds 4-6 people. The only thing that bothered me was the large chains around the...more
If you want to go and do some proper swimming, Radha Nagar is the place to head for. While beautiful, most of the other beaches have very shallow, coral-filled waters, but Radha Nagar shelves off quite quickly, so is the perfect depth, and even gets some pretty big waves if you fancy body-boarding or surfing. You'd have to bring your own equipment...more
Little kiosk where family of 5 people live, sleep and grow up child. Very simple and very cheap. We went to eat few times to eat brekfast.Milky porage is good. And fish good too. The plate of tiger prawn costs 500rups. Very cheap. BUT you have to oder in advance and maybe pay 50% in advance to be sure that they will go to market to buy them 1st.more
There are several boats per day from Havelock Island to Port Blair, ticket office is next to the pier and you need a copy of your Andaman permit, you can book 3 days ahead, same day and next day boats might be full allready (but the privat, fast and expensive catamaran with a different booking office might still have seats available). There is...more
For 250r a day you can rent a scooter to get you around the island - we booked this through our hostel, but there are places in the main village as well (you might be able to get them cheaper there, but when we looked the bikes weren't as good as the one we had). You can rent bicycles too, if you're feeling fit!more
Little kind are very friendly in Andama,Havelok Island.
They are not sticky at all to compare with Goa's.
In every little kiosk you will find an indian movie on. Our little boy liked to wach it . Kids just sit down on the floor and enjoy
Very, very nice and piceful 2 lagoons just in 40 min after Training elephant camp. Not so easy to walk! During high tide -only via jungle along the paf.Sometimes we didnot sea a paf at all. But during low tide take a beach. I can not say what is better and easy! Almost NOT posibble to acces by scooter. We could not!But i saw 1 scooter in that place!
Beauteful and clean lagoons. NO people around .To compare with lagoon on the beach #7- they ar wild lagoons. I saw only 1 diving boat in a logoon.
Take a food and drikn with you and ready to spend all day there!Super place.
Also posibble to snork.
The damage on the corals is not Bad below 10 meters, the Diving is still god. There are several diveshops at beach #3 and #5, all charge 4500 Rupies for 2 dives and want to start at 7 am. You should look yourself with whom you feel comfortable and who has good equipment. To me DiveIndia looked competent. Equipment is included in the preis, you...more
Some places offer snorkeling trips, for instance the Wifi Internet Café in beach #3 (on the way to beach #4) 3 spots for 600 Rupies 5 spots for 800 Rupies on nearby islands. For people who never did snorkel in tropical waters this is good, stil some corals and tropical fish to see, but if you did a lot of snorkeling in South East Asia it is not...more
You can't walk around any of Havelock's beaches without seeing hundreds, if not thousands of these things. There are at least a couple of different species; we saw some that were bright blue with red legs (sadly couldn't get a photo of them though). This photo is of a gigantic specimen we found that was sadly homeless - we couldn't find a shell big enough to house him! The tide carried him off - I hope he found something.
The hermits on Havelock were mostly aquatic, found in the tidal pools among the mangroves, or on the shoreline. There was a terrestrial species on Neil Island however...and they were huge!
