A grand trip to the archipelago of Andaman Islands happened in mid August 2014 with a team of 9 guys together. And I must definitely say that this trip we had been planning and talking for 8 years until we made it. There are no words that would fit appropriate to express and feel the happiness when you’ve waited for 8 years to make something happen. And hell yeah.. that kind of a trip it is!
The serene South Andaman in the Archipelago of Andaman
South Andaman majorly covers the main South Andaman Island, Henry Lawrence Island, Havelock Island, Sir William Peel Island, Outram, Lakshmanpur, Rutland Island, North Sentinel Island and many other small islands.
South Andaman Island is the main island where the capital city Port Blair is and it is densely populated. To stay in a home stay kind of a room would be the best and the most economical option in the heart of the city and we did no different to stay easily accessible to foods and stuffs. Lots of people, houses, vehicles, forest areas, agriculture lands, farm houses and beaches which would just reflect how the mainland India is. Hindi, Bengali and Tamil are the most spoken languages here. South Andaman Island has lots of forest areas and most of the forest areas are highly preserved and very well conserved.
You bet on me! Havelock Island beaches are the amazing ones in the whole of the Sub-Continent and well it could be the best in the whole of the South Asia. Havelock island is around 60 km north east of the city Port Blair. Havelock island covers area of around 120 sq. km, roughly 1/3rd of the city area of Las Vegas. This island is great in vegetation, sea food and stunning coast lines. It has quite a lot of beautiful resorts lining up the sea shores.
It would take around 2.5 hours to reach Havelock from Port Blair in a ferry. This ferry travel would make you cherish for your life time with the beautiful mountains come along with you right from Port Blair until you reach Havelock, Steep and green island-like rocks while nearing Havelock, spread out tiny beautiful islands in the blue sea of Andaman, stunning pod of Dolphins taking deep dives, eye-catching Flying Fishes taking a long stretch of fly over the water surface, large groups of Jelly Fishes flashing along and amazing sun sets down the mountains.
Andaman sea is very much gifted with all these extra ordinary nature phenomena.
