These range from jewellery items like necklaces and earrings to decorative objects like wall hangings and mirrors.

"Excellent location to have a great vacation" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Excellent location. Good experience. Beach is flat and driving is allowed in beach. Perfect for those people who are busy whole days and therefore want to spend a relax along with enjoyable life for few days, are highly recommended. Besides train services, many AC buses are available from Kolkata. The journey is comfortable in those buses. Beach is also perfect for family persons as unlike other beaches, Mandarmani beach is good to bathe in sea water for all ages as it is not dangerous in terms of water levels for few meters. Excellent.!!

"Nice place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Spend a relaxed short vacation and enjoyed the quiet and calm beach of Mandarmoni. The hotel we selected (Calypso Hotel n Resort) from MakeMyTrip was just awesome. Tried some authentic sea food, which was also awesome. People travelling to Mandarmoni should also visit 'Mohona' and 'Red Crab island'.

"Overall experience is good in Mandarmani beach"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I visited this beautiful beach with my family and stayed at Hotel Sonar Bangla. There are few hotels which are situated on the beach so you can choose any one of the hotel and can spend 2 to 3 days in a quiet calm peaceful place. You can drive car in sea beach at the high tide and low tide time. The beach is flat so the sea batch will be interesting and good. You can enjoy hard drinks and snacks throughout the day and night. If you stay into the hotel at night you will be safe. The area of all most all hotels are big and you can enjoy the free from the crowd. So I can say this is best beach in west bengal. The last important thing is go there in group so you can enjoy more and more.

"Best weekend getaways"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Mandarmani perhaps have the longest beach in India. It is huge and you can drive on it. All sports and outdoor activities can be carried on. You can even hold the World Cup of Beach Soccer with ease. 180 Kms from Kolkata and the last stretch of the road finally completed by the State Government makes it one of the best weekend getaways. You can travel in groups, couple or family for 2N/3Ds and get yourself detox. The sea is very calm and suitable for bathing for people of all ages. The best thing is, budget is not a constraint in travelling to this beautiful beach. Carry suitable amount of required medicines. Mandarmani is an all season destination.

"Nice beach place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's a beach located in West Bengal. A very nice place to relax and get apart from the daily busy schedule of life. Must go to the delta and enjoy a long walk through the beach. But should carry medicines with you as there are no medical shops. In brief it's a very nice place to visit nearby Kolkata at cheap budget.

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Mandarmani is located in west Bengal. From Kolkata it will be 165 km by road, its is a perfect destination for holiday. Very beautiful place around with sea beaches and nature beauty. Very good restaurants mouth watering food especially sea food like fish crab also good vegetarian food aloo posto palak paneer. Very peace and neat and clean place people are friendlier. West Bengal tourism board provide bus to easy way roaming around the place. At least two night three day have to be spent here. Sea beaches are clean good view of sun set and sun rise after that you may go a place known as Digha located at 30 km you may spend there.

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Mandarmani beach is in West Bengal. Mandarmani beach is a calm and quite beach. It is few kilometer away from the most busy and populated beach Digha. This beach is for those who likes to enjoy the sea breeze in a calm atmosphere. It will a very soothing experience to them who leads a busy city life if they come to Mandarmani.

"Beauty and serenity!"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
If you are looking for a peaceful gateway not very far away from home and also without the city hustle then Mandarmani is the perfect destination. The only thing that I find very non facilitating is the lack of electricity. Every thing runs on diesel and this makes everything quite dearer. But if cost is not a constraint then simply pack your bags and leave for the rendezvous of the sea, serenity, the horizon and you.

The beach is crowd less and awesome. Go for the hotels which have their own beach front. Most of them do so no need to worry. The air is fresh and abundant. Almost all have arrangements for good food and drinks. Savouring the sun and the sea with green coconuts in my hands is the best way I love to relax. Also don't forget to spend the evening on the beach although try to keep a little distance between you and the sea as the water keeps rising along the night. Holidayiq.com can and will get the best possible deal for you.

"Mind blowing Mandarmani!"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 29, 2015
Digha beach : over crowded
Tajpur beach : not up to the mark

Now which place in West Bengal will come into rescue when you are looking for a beach where the sea will touch your feet and will refresh your mind, body & soul? Mardarmani is the answer.

You can ride in the motor van to visit the estuary(where a river is meeting the sea). Food is good at the beach side. Specially fried prawn and pomfret. The price is reasonable & you will enjoy the fresh cooking food a lot. Most of hotels come with swimming pool, badminton court and other amenities. So the time can be well spent besides sitting at the sea side. Beach is clean.
