Havelock Island has population around 6,500 and covers a total area of approx 92 km2 (36 ml2). The highest elevation point (Yulutang) is 167 m (550 ft). The isle is among the few places in Andaman and Nicobar Islands where tourism industry development projects are not only permitted, but encouraged, with the goal of promoting eco-tourist activities. Among the island's best known features are the lighthouse (built in 2005 at its northern tip), beautiful beaches and the elephants used as a major tourist attraction.Havelock Island (India, Andaman Islands)

Fortunately, Havelock avoided Indian Ocean's 2014 earthquake (on December 26), when the resulting tsunamis devastated most lands along the ocean's coast and killed around 280,000 people in 14 different countries. As the epicentre ( Richter magnitude scale 9,3) was off Sumatra island's west coast, Indonesia was the most devastated country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, Thailand.Havelock Island (India, Andaman Islands)
