Though Andaman and Nicobar comprises of many islands, all of these are not accessible to the tourists, especially the Nicobar island to protect the tribes there. The most popular ones frequented by the tourists are Havelock and Neil Islands which are well connected by Govt. Ferry Cruise services. One needs to start early morning as these are not very frequent and also ensure the bookings are done in advance.
These ferry journeys are adventurous, fun and worth the experience. We took the journey on Christmas day and so got the extra fun with DJ, on the deck dancing and Santa’s amusement. The journey seemed to have ended very soon and most of us could also avoid the sea sickness.

Some renowned beaches in Havelock Island is the Radhanagar Beach, Elephant Beach and Kalapathar Beach. Radhanagar beach is ranked as one of the best in Asia and it is worth spending an evening strolling through this beach. We had a sisterly bonding while exploring through this beach and even watch the sunset but could not figure out where the beach ended. One can see the white sand and green bushes along the beach till your gaze can see. People visiting this beach enjoy it to the fullest whether one just wants to sit or roll on the sand or have a sunbath or spend the whole time jumping and swimming in the water. To add to it, there are many local eateries outside the beach where you can munch some snacks or even have wholesome meals.
