Memories have a very deep impact on one's soul, so it is necessary that one must create beautiful memories that will be cherished forever. I was blessed to create few of the most wonderful memories for myself on my trip to the heavenly Havelock island of Andaman. Andaman was never on my list, but thanks to a close friend who always kept mentioning that we must try "Scuba in Havelock" whenever there was a discussion on our next travel destination.
After months of planning and research it was time to board the flight from Mumbai. It was 4.00 a.m. in the morning and we all were very excited to board our flight as our dream was turning into reality. For people who hate Layovers, book a GoAir flight which departs from Mumbai at 04.05 a.m. as this is the only direct flight to Port Blair.
The flight was on schedule and we landed in Port Blair at 7.30 a.m. We then headed to the Phoenix Bay Jetty to board our vessel (ferry) to Havelock island. The jetty is hardly 15 minutes via car and there are taxi services available from the airport. Reached the Port around 8.30 a.m.
After hunting for breakfast, we discovered Anda Paratha at a local stall which was just the right thing that our empty stomach needed. We boarded our vessel at 12.30 p.m and were all set to leave for the heavenly Havelock islands. The Green Ocean ferry was very comfortable and also allowed the passengers to access the deck so that they can enjoy the view of the sea.
The transition of the sea colour from normal to crystal clear blue gave us the hint that were close to Havelock. Our ferry reached the Havelock jetty at 3.00. p.m. and we headed straight towards our hotel which was just 5 minutes away from the jetty.
We had booked our stay at Kingdom hotel which in many ways is one of the best options as it has clean rooms and is at a walking distance from the jetty. We spent the rest of the evening chilling at the Govind nagar beach which was at a walking distance of 2 minutes.
