"Mandarmani as a Holiday Destination"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is a good place to cool off. The resort arranges good food, and musical get together, in case sufficient number of people are present. Gymnasium and swimming pool are available in most resorts. Table tennis board and carrom board is also generally available. So one should go in a group for up to three days, and just be in the resort, next to the sea. The beach is good for long morning and evening walks. Vodafone and Airtel services support internet. Others will get your calls across, but internet will not be available.

"A lovely experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 5, 2016
We planned for a weekend trip to Mandarmoni Beach, West Bengal. The Beaches are very much clean. You get food to eat nearby the Beach. Shops selling Handicrafts such as Bags, Ornaments made of bamboo and all. For foodies there you will get fresh fishes. Water sports arrangements are present such as jetski and ATV to ride on the beach on good rates. You can see Red crabs. We just Love the experience over there.

"scenic mandarmani"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 22, 2016
Most visited Beach in West Bengal at a low cost. Walking at the beach during sunrise/sunset is an awesome feeling. Can take van-rickshaw to go to the Mohona where you can see Red Crabs. A very pleasant atmosphere during sunset. Plenty of hotels are there and during off season you can get rooms at very cheap rate. One must carry medicine as there are no medical stores around.

"Perhaps one of the top 10 biggest beach in the World"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Feb 14, 2016
Mandarmani Beach without doubt is the biggest beach in India. It is so vast that you cannot see from one end to the other (East West Direction). If properly developed by Indian Government it will give the best beaches of the world a run for their money. You can conduct all activities possible and also conduct car and bike races.

"Bad location and ill behaviour of people out there"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Feb 10, 2016
It's been a nightmare, the location is very bad. Bad smell all around. Bad service, behaviour is very very bad, so the services. The foods are not good. Smell of Shutki Fish, it's like entering your nose and tearing it apart. Ill-behaviour, is like they don't care you are a customer.

"Beautiful sea beach, not much crowd and resort literally on sea bed"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Feb 7, 2016
Totally worth a visit, I am going to visit once again. I visited it with my friends and its 160 Kms from Kolkata. 100 kms from Kol would be a butter ride but after that not much of a comfort ride. But once you reach the destination it's all about resting there. Don't go with an impression of having fun in the beach. It's a place to just sit and relax, have a booze with friends that's it.

I love the place for weekend chill and away from hustle bustle. A great and awesome place to chill close to the city. An ideal family spot with fun, thrill and excitement.

"Fantastic weekend destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 25, 2016
Mandarmani is one of the finest weekend destination in West Bengal. The best way to go there is by Car or by Bus (from esplanade). It is full 'paisa-vasool'. Maximum of the resorts are near beach and you can enjoy the beauty of sea by sitting at the balcony of those resorts. Only one problem is load shedding as many of the resort still have only generator system as electricity haven't reached that place, but seating near sea beach enjoying that sea-air and having beer is heavenly feeling.

"Ideal place for Weekend Break"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 19, 2016
A comfortable 3 hour drive would take you to this haven a clean, beautiful and serene MOTORABLE Beach. YES, the Beach was a pleasure that I can't put in words. Not very commercialised you will find some quaint resorts dotting the Beach. Our resort arranged for a small bonfire for our group by the Beach which was amazing.

Water Sports are also there and you can bargain on their rate card. The Red Crab Area is a must visit although they will hide as soon as we drive close to them. Beware of driving beyond the recommended limits on the beach, your Car may get stuck in the sands!
