How to get there [edit]

Fly to Andaman Islands International Airport (IXZ). Next take one of the numerous ferries from Port Blair to Havelock Island. Usually it is difficult to buy tickets, as well as to get to the ferry. So try to buy tickets in advance (at the port, in a travel agency or in the hotel), and choose more expensive boat.
