    Fine sand, clear warm sea. The main thing to take along food and water. Shops and restaurants there. Snorkeling disappoint. The truth is, a place where inhabited marine crocodiles-scary creatures-no morals. Not so long ago, they say, ate a tourist on the island of little Andaman island. The place where these are found crocodiles designated special plate. Say, in the evening you can watch on the shore. I have not seen. Adjacent to the beach, jungle, recent hurricane severely damaged many of the fallen trees.

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.
