Wild Orchid Resort Havelock Island

Day 2: We were transferred to harbor from our hotel at 5:45 in the morning to catch the ferry going to Havelock. Initially we booked for private ferries (Makruzz etc) to transfer from 1 island to another. However in Sept they were not running so we took Govt ferry and I can say that we are lucky to catch Govt ferry. Govt ferries have 2 decks (open) where people can actually stand in open. 1 deck is in the back and other is at the top of the ship. The views are amazing, which people taking private ferries might have missed. We even visited captain's room from where he is controlling the ship and navigating it. After transfer to hotel we had half day at leisure. In afternoon we proceed to visit RadhaNagar beach. Words simply can not express how beautiful it is. For people running away from the crowds and daily lifestyle, this is the place. We observed a decent enough sunset from here, could have been better if the sky was clear. Even though the sunset here is very famous, there was only a footfall of approximately 50-60 persons on a daily basis, as compared to hundreds of people at Goa beach. Day 3: We had Elephanta beach in our itinerary for today, however sea was rough on that day so we were given a option to visit Light House. We indulged in water activities like snorkeling, banana boat ride etc. In afternoon we hired a scooter and roamed at our will. Havelock is very small island and there are only 3 roads which covers all the places.
