Exotic location with a beach where one can relax and unwind!

I was getting bored with the usual pressure at my workplace and I wanted to visit a place which would give a relief from the daily din't and shackles of city life. So I decided to visit Mandarmani for a weekend tour. To tell you the truth, I made the right decision.
Mandarmani is a quiet and serene place. It will relax the mind and soul of the travellers. No sound, no hustle, no bustle- the only sound is the roar of the sea waves. The sea is the perfect host. It goes on rolling its waves and you can sit all day on the beach and count its waves. The sea acts like a soothing balm to the weary city dwellers.
Travellers can try the exquisite sea fish cuisine of this place but it will be preferable to eat from a good restaurant.
Mandarmani is three to four hours drive from Kolkata. Anyone wishing to visit Mandarmani can avail trains or state/private bus facility. Buses stop at Chawlkhola from where it is 18-20 minutes drive to Mandarmani. Tourists can also take their own cars.
There are many good hotels here. But those resorts which provide private beaches are the best ones.
Tourists can also indulge in water sports or just take a Bath at the sea. Local market sells conch shell products. Tourists can also visit Mohona or Tajpur or Digha from Mandarmani.
However, I did not go anywhere. I spent my whole day sitting at the baech and enjoying the panoramic view of the beach. I would recommend this place to everybody who wishes to spend some relaxed time from their busy schedule with their loved ones.

Mandarmani- a weekend excursion

I wanted to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. So I went to Mandarmani with my wife and we both were very satisfied. Mandarmani is a quiet and serene place. The only sound one can hear is the sound of the sea waves. All day long we sat at the beach and counted the waves. No worry, no fear - just the sea and us. We returned home with a relaxed mind.
