It is to be kept in mind that Havelock Island is not a place for beginner surfers and should be left only for the experts. The North Bay of Havelock Island has the perfect intensity of breaks and reefs for someone seeking a challenge.

Precaution First

Before you head out with your surfboard for a good surfing session be mindful of the fact the months except for the monsoon months will not give you the thrill you are chasing after. It is only during the monsoon season that the waves set out a plethora of challenges for the seasoned surfers. The waves might reach a height of eight feet and should not be tackled by beginners. With the presence of heavy rainfall and strong monsoon winds, it is best to surf under the guidance of a trainer keeping your safety in mind.
