Welcome to Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep)

Havelock has been developing fast in recent years, with a sharp rise in domestic tourism and concrete-clad resorts chasing away many of the original bamboo beach huts. But much of the island's 92 sq km (it's the largest in Ritchie's Archipelago) remains untouched, and the beaches and diving are as bewitching as ever.
