About

Sitting at the head of one of the many sounds slicing through the northern shore, Havelock is the perfect stop to enjoy the calm waters bordered by green mountains. Rent a boat to explore the waters, or to fish in the pristine waters. Kayaks are also available for those who want a little exercise after a long drive, and are the perfect way to take in the surrounding beauty that towers overhead. For those weary of the water, there is also plenty of hiking and biking trails in the surrounding mountains, with gorgeous views of the winding coastline. The one thing that can definitely not be missed are the towns most famous export. Havelock is known as the greenshell mussel capital of the world, as it is the center of production for these delectable treats. You can take a cruise to see how they are fished out of the water or just gorge on them at a local restaurant housed in the quaint colonial buildings.
