Havelock Island is the most visited of the Andaman Islands. It's becoming popular for its beaches, laid back vibe and great scuba diving. About 38 Kms. from Port Blair, this island provides idyllic resort in the lap of virgin beach and unpolluted environment. Camping facility is available near Radhanagar Beach. A guesthouse of Tourism Department "Dolphin Resort" is available for the tourists.
Scuba diving is probably the biggest activity on the island other than lying around and eating great seafood. Andaman Bubbles, Barefoot Scuba and Dive India are the top 3 paid certified dive centers, provide good equipment and offer training up to instructor. Snorkelling and Trekking are the other tourist delights at this island. The majority of accommodations on offer are cheap palm-thatched beach huts.
The beaches have been given a rather boring numbering system instead of names, although some names like Radhanagar are in popular use. The arrival port is at Beach #1, the junction at the center is Beach #3 (aka Govind Nagar), the junction near Dolphin Resort is Beach #5 (Vijay Nagar) and so on. Govind Nagar, the main "town", is small and has only a handful of shops and local dhabas. Most accommodation is grouped along the road from Beach #3 to Beach #5. From the 'junction' near Beach #3 a road veers off to Beach #7 (Radhanagar Beach), the most beautiful spot on the island.
