Where to stay in Havelock Island

Havelock Island has been developed in a manner sensitive to its pristine nature. The island's main accommodations by and large stick to this ethos, with the main choice consisting of rustic beachside huts, eco-friendly lodges, and low-impact resorts. Positioned close to the beaches in the northeast and northwest, the accommodations make up for in positioning what they lack in additional facilities. A good number of camping grounds located close (but not too close) to the main beachside urban areas offer a particularly atmospheric island experience.
