Port Blair, the capital city is a bustling overgrown town of immense historical importance. The famous Cellular Jail (that housed Indian freedom fighters during the struggle for independence) draws hundreds on visitors and is perhaps the most visited monument in the Andamans.
Havelock Island is the recommended island and hub of all tourist activity. It is perfect for those who wish to kick off their shoes, have a relaxing vacation or be adventurous and try various activities that include but are not limited to camping, scuba diving and snorkelling.
The two main beaches here are the Vijaynagar Beach (Beach No. 5) and the Radhanagar Beach (Beach No. 7) – the latter has been rated as the Best Beach in Asia. At Havelock Island, you can afford to be lazy and be a complete beach bum or fill your day with an explosion of adventure activities to get that adrenaline pumping.
You will see more activity in a minute while scuba diving in the Andaman’s than you can see in a whole day at safari in Africa. There is no better adrenaline high and given the untouched, pristine coral reefs in the Andaman’s it is no surprise that diving has become the most popular activity here.
Don’t know how to swim but want to scuba dive?
Not a problem at all!
You don’t necessarily need to know to swim to try diving. As long as you are comfortable in the water and have general good health, you too can dive.
