TRAVEL GUIDE TO HAVELOCK ISLAND

A pearly white treasure nestled beautifully in a sea of turquoise – Havelock Island is a treat to the eyes, no matter which way you look. There is a quaint charm attached to this place, the air of being untouched by commercial tourism and the allure of untamed tropical beauty that makes Havelock one of the most popular destinations in South Asia. So if you are planning a trip to the Andaman, we recommend you ensure that you save at least 2 days in your package itinerary to explore the gem that is this island.

Havelock Island – What makes it so special?

Holiday packages planned with Andaman Excursion are designed by nature to be a special experience for travellers, and Havelock is the main highlight of the trip. There is a reason why this place is known as a vacationer’s paradise. Silken white beaches, sparkling blue sea, twinkling teal shadows, sublime green forests all around and of course, magnificent panoramas – this place has it all! You can chill out on the glittering white sand of Radhanagar Beach or explore the untouched beauty of Beach No. 5 or explore the sheltered sands and crystalline waters of the lagoon at Neil’s Cove. You can hike through the jungle to reach Kalapathar Beach and get away from the crowd. You can relax at one of the many cafes on the island and enjoy sea food as you have never experienced before. You can take a diving course and witness the mesmerising underwater sights of one of the best diving destinations in South Asia. Your Havelock package can be designed to include just about any kind of relaxation that may catch your fancy!

Havelock Island – How to reach the place?

This island is truly one of the biggest attractions that the Andaman has to offer. And so, there are a surprising number of options that you can explore from Port Blair if you are wondering how to reach the place. The distance between Port Blair and Havelock isn’t longer than a couple of hours so don’t worry – your precious time in the Andaman wouldn’t be wasted in a long commute. To reach the island, you have the following two modes of transport:

You can choose to travel to Havelock from Port Blair in total air conditioned luxury on a Catamaran ferry. The ride will get you to reach the island in about 90-120 minutes during which you can experience riding the up-and-down waves on the open sea as your vessel cuts through the water at high speeds. Or you can choose to travel via Government run ferries and enjoy the open sea for longer. Here is all you need to know before making your choice:

  • run ferries are quite cheap but take longer to reach Havelock – 90 minutes via speed boat and 3 hours for slower ferries. The ones that go via Neil Island take an additional 1 hour to get you to Havelock. All ferries leave from Phoenix Bay jetty.
  • Private ferries are more expensive (almost twice the cost of government run ferries) but are a lot faster and way more comfortable. Makruzz run by Mak Logistics, Port Blair & Coastal Cruise operated by Coastal Seaways India Pvt. Ltd., Green Ocean and Bhagya Express are the options that you can choose from.
  • Schedules are subject to change, but usually, you can select a ferry between 6AM to 2PM from Port Blair to Havelock. Most ferries begin their return journey between 3 and 4 PM.
