The Andaman Islands are a group of archipelagic islands located in the Bay of Bengal between India to the west and Burma to the north and east. Of the 572 islands, islets and rocks that constitute the Andaman and Nicobar chain, as little as 36 are inhabited. Of these, Havelock Island is the largest and the most popular holiday destination. Virtually inaccessible for centuries and long shrouded in mystery and legend – these undulating islands have just started to emerge on the independent traveller’s list of must see places in the world. Due to the government’s strict controls, the added stigma of a former ‘penal colony’, and the untiring efforts of environmentalists, the Andamans still retain their original wild untamed character and remain breathtakingly pristine and beautiful till date. Scuba divers and snorkelers alike have jumped at the rare chance of being able to dive in these unexplored waters. The azure waters surrounding the Andaman Islands make it a treasure trove for novices and experienced divers alike and Havelock is the nucleus of diving in the Andamans. Pristine dive spots and enchanting fish life have ensured that the Andamans are now considered as a diving hot spot and divers from all around the world make their way to these islands simply to scuba dive. Don’t miss the opportunity while on these islands to don that tank of air, snap on that mask and view the colourful world beneath the waves. Wander for miles on practically isolated beaches, simply relax in a hammock or experience a fun-filled holiday. Complete with an array of exciting activities for all age groups, Havelock has it all and is definitely the place to be for honeymoon couples!

Whilst there are numerous popular destinations that have been commercially exploited, there still exist some truly breath-taking, serene locations that are relatively unexplored. One such amazing revelation is the quaint coastal village called “Manapad”. Manapad is a small hamlet that is nestled between naturally formed sand dunes on one side and encircled by clear blue seas on three sides. The naturally formed hillock converges into the sea resulting in an unique point which has been formed due to ancient lava flow that extends well into the ocean. This inimitable natural splendour also provides a great location for adventure water sports and fascinating leisure activities. Manapad is also entrenched in history as one of the places for the advent and spread of Christianity in India. It’s towering churches and European themed castles still adorn the narrow lanes of this coastal village. Manapad is also surrounded by many other places that are of great religious, heritage and tourism significance. This extension is designed for those who loves unexplored destinations and deserted beaches and sand dunes. In this pristine locality, far away from the most famous tourist attractions in India, you can relax and enjoy the sea or experience water sports such surfing, canoeing etc. You can add this 4 days extension during the tour in Tamil Nadu so to unwind on these exotic and uncontaminated beaches of Manapad, before returning back home.
