Situated at the end of what was once voted the ‘best beach in Asia’, Barefoot at Havelock is one of the finest hotels in the Andamans.
There are just 19 elegant wooden cottages and villas with en suite bathrooms built using indigenous materials in keeping with the resort's impressive eco-credentials.
There is the choice of either Indian or European dishes at the restaurant, and as we often advise in more remote locations, it's probably best to stick to the local cuisine, including the excellent fresh seafood.
The most popular activity from the hotel is diving, and the team at Barefoot Scuba is the best in the islands, arranging trips to several superb local sites, including extensive coral and wreck dives, in the nearby Ritchie's Archipelago and around Neil and Long Islands.
Other activities on offer include snorkelling, guided nature walks, fishing and kayaking and for the green-minded, beach clean up walks.
