I stayed in Havelock island for a day. It is easily reachable by ferry. There are a lot of quirky cafes.The night life is vibrant while the day is peaceful. I scuba dived here and was awestruck by the colourful underwater life. I suggest you stay here for more than a day roaming around and spend time mingling with other friendly foreign tourists.
