Radhnagar beach on Havelock Island in the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar islands is clean, relatively deserted and untouched by the tourist trade.
The nearby Barefoot resort is a group of 10-15 bungalows set in the wood with good access to the beach. Good seafood, plenty of relaxation and one of the best beaches in India. For those who find lying on the beach tiresome, nearby Port Blair on South Andaman island offers plenty of relics from the days when the Territory was a British penal colony.
Colonial structures strewn across the island are reminiscent of the opulent Imperial lifestyle. In its prime, the island housed an ice-making factory, a brewery, a church and graveyard, a swimming pool, tennis courts and a cricket pitch, besides other sprawling buildings that were homes to British officers. The chief commissioner’s residence with its huge gardens and grand ballroom was perhaps the most lavish.
As you walk around the island, you will come across small huts that were used to imprison convicts and the aborigines. The island was colonised by the British mainly for use as a penal settlement, where the aborigines were trapped as hostages to ensure good behaviour on the part of the others of their tribe.
A small settlement of the Indian Navy and some deer are the only inhabitants of the island now, besides the imposing creepers of course. As one goes beyond the stories and relics, one is filled with a sense of awe and reverence for the powerful force of nature, which in this case, has fought back its past splendour!
