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. 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.
The first and only ecologically-friendly resort in the Andamans, our eco-resort at Havelock is located exclusively on what TIME Magazine rated as the best beach in Asia, and set in seven acres of tropical rainforest and fruit trees behind a lovely stretch of white sand at the quirkily named Beach No. 7 on Havelock Island. The resort consists of 18 beautifully designed and environmentally sensitive cottages spread out in the tropical foliage. Activities include yoga, escorted nature walks, snorkelling and scuba diving.
Andamans can be visited from October to May, however the best time is from January to May (summer).
