Hi there!

I wanna say hello as this is my first post

I'm going to visit Havelock Island in August. In my studies about the Andamans I got aware of the crocodile attack on a tourist a couple of years ago and that attacks on humans have increased. The idea of a saltie anywhere near me leaves me kind of nervous. I'm wondering how this is affecting daily life and travelling. Are there places where you can swim safely? Is it safe to explore the island by foot? Do I even have to fear them on land?

So many questions, but most of the threads concerning them are years old. Would be very happy If someone can calm me down

Thanks,
Chris

We were there just last week and spent hours in the water - though less than 30m from shore - and found scores of other people doing the same in Vijayanagar, Radha Nagar beaches without fear. We did not venture into the waters in secluded / mangrove areas and stuck mostly to areas where there were just a few people.
