The Andaman Island's tourism is increasing noticeably and nowhere more so than Havelock Island.
The sustained and significant promotion of eco-friendly tourism by the Indian authorities has lead to its popularity.
It is now the most visited of the Andaman Islands and the reason is undoubtedly its superb beaches like Radhanagar beach and slow-paced relaxing vibe.
Add to this unrivaled scuba diving sites with tropical marine habitats and you have the ideal combination for a superb travel destination.
The best time for diving combines with the best weather conditions which is commonly from January until the end of April.
The climate during the first half of the year is mostly sunny and hot with calm flat seas.
Avoiding the area after May when the monsoons arrive is advised although diving is still available at some selected sites.
Although Havelock is still an emerging market for diving, in fact the sites have plenty of diversity to satisfy different skill levels and even snorkelers.
You may be surprised to learn that the majority of the best scuba sites are relatively shallow by modern standards. Although deeper spots are being challenged there is enough reef activity above twenty meters to satisfy almost anyone.
