In off season August.
I stayed at Gold Star Resort. I paid 1000 rupees for an AC room. Its not fancy but a reasonable place for the money. Or not? Because I didnt look elsewhere.
I rented a scooter from the rental right outside the resort. 250 for 24 hours which was deducted on return from the 1000 bucks deposit. It was pay for your own fuel. 90/litre at the rental. 70 at the oil dealer. There are two oil dealers in Havelock. At least that’s what I saw.
For the first time, I did snorkelling in Havelock Island. The resort arranged for me a boat and a guide for 1200 rupees. It could be cheaper if you go in a group.
We rode this speed boat from the jetty to near the light house.
I’ve just returned from a trip to Port Blair and Havelock, Andaman – one of the few places with clear ocean water in India. I spent two nights in Havelock and a night in Port Blair. I rode the ferry. I lived on a diet of fish curry and rice. I did snorkelling, glass boat ride and many more but no trekking or cycling. Pictures and more posts in the days to come. Stay tuned.
