Beware of the dogs on Havelock Island

Havelock Island is the jewel of the Andaman tropical archipelago paradise, but it also has the dubious distinction of having the highest concentration of street dogs in the Andamans. It is said that no one is safe from these street dogs and that includes the locals too.

I learnt it the hard way when I got attacked by three of them and bit by one while walking the sands of Beach No. 3. Luckily for me, these dogs had already been sterilized and my wound wasn’t that bad. But, it ruined by beach holiday as I couldn’t get into the water for seven days. So, if you are planning a beach holiday to Havelock Island…Remember to watch out for the rowdy local dogs!
