Mandarmani Info

  • State: West Bengal

  • District: East Midnapore
A beach resort, Mandarmani, is located in south-west Bengal in India. Situated in the East Midnapore district, the destination is a fast developing seaside resort village. Situated at a distance of 14 km from Chaulkhola and near the popular tourist destinations of Digha and Shankarpur, the destination is fast becoming one of the most developed tourist attractions of West Bengal.



Things to do in Mandarmani

This small town is known for its sea beach along with activities like surfing, ATV rides, jet skiing, banana boat rides etc. The most famous attraction of Mandarmani is the 13 km long motorable Mandarmani Beach. Prior to setting out for a drive on the beach, it is better to find out the timings of high tides as water levels might rise up to the beach level.

The place is also known for its beautiful sunrise and sunset views that can be best enjoyed along the beach. At a distance of 5-6 km from the main beach is The Delta which is ideal for taking a stroll. However, the area is best avoided after dark. Numerous red crabs can be seen on this stretch of the beach.



Food & Shopping in Mandarmani

Since Mandarmani is a beach destination, it is a good place to try some fish and other seafood. Fresh fish and crabs can be bought from the local fishermen. Most resorts serve local Bengali cuisine. Prawns and crabs are the specialties of the region. Apart from the resorts, food is also available at small eateries and shacks on the beach. These mostly sell tea and snacks but food is also available provided orders are placed beforehand. But the price of food available in Mandarmani is on the higher side. For shoppers, there are objects made of different types of sea shells and oysters. These range from jewellery items like necklaces and earrings to decorative objects like wall hangings and mirrors.

"Mandarmani in full moon" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It's awesome when sea waves touch your feet. Presently I am enjoying an unexpected memorable moment by standing at the boundary wall of Bombay Beach Resort in Mandarmani, West Bengal. Sea water almost trying to cross the boundary wall and most of the time water comes in side the hotel boundary due to high tides of the sea. I can't express my feelings through writing here. So, if you are a sea lover please come once in the full moon rainy season to watch the natural beauty of the sea.

"Mesmerising Place" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
A trip to be remembered life long. Neat and clean beaches, far from the maddening crowd, one can lie down on the beach for full day. An evening walk on the beach is very relaxing. One who wants to stay far from the hustle bustle of the city and enjoy the serenity of nature must opt Mandarmani for vacation. Body and soul both get relaxed after coming here. Not so many places are there as tourist spots but it doesn't matter. One can enjoy different flavours of paan here ranging from 20 to 200 buck...

"Awesome Mandarmani"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 22, 2017
I have been to Mandarmani several times but this is my first time to stay at the place. Location of Bombay beach resort is no doubt attractive & atmosphere is also very good, all necessary facilities are available there. The hotel is situated just on the beach & from every room sea is clearly visible. I am quite sure if you stay
Here you will get value of money you are spending.

"Mandarmani - Sea Beach of West Bengal, India"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 21, 2017
Hello guys !!
Hope your are doing good. Once again I am back with my travel review on most popular sea beach of Kolkata "Mandarmani".
180 km away from central Kolkata. Most popular for pleasant weekend. People of Kolkata love to spend their weekend with family and friends at Mandarmani. Apart from Mandarmani, Digha is also popular for weekend trips. Reaching Mandarmani is little difficult because no direct bush or trains are available. If you are going by car then it's fine. Mandarmoni is newly developed beach area of West Bengal. Number of hotels and resorts are available at Mandarmoni.
You will easily get sea view room at reasonable prices. Budget hotels are also available. Go for online booking from sites like Makemytripto select hotels please visit my hotel reviews. Thebest thing of Mandarmoni is that you can see seamless seacoast over there.
View of beach and sea is breathtaking. You may spend your time Reading books or watching kids playing into the sea or watching fisherman fishing into the sea.
Few local people sell food on the beach. They cook eroding to your choices. West Bengal government is taking care of these beaches to make tourist more comfortable and safety. Mandarmani beach lack of watersports and fun activities like other beaches. 3 days tour could be enough to refresh you. I am regular visitor of Mandarmoni sea beach and I am giving my pluses and minuses to it
Pluses
1. Silent beach are.
2. Long coastal view.
3. Plenty of hotels.
4. Safe for family travelers.
Minuses
1. Transport services. Restaurant are very few Train and Bus stops.
Hope you guys like it.
Love SBK

Ideal getaway from Kolkata. Good roads. Relaxed environment and secluded beach ⛱. Good for morning and evening walks barefoot. Safe waters. Kids will be safe. Royal pani, packet snacks and soft drinks are generally available. Take care of tanning like any other beach ⛱. Carry your beach caps and garden umbrella ☔. Above all enjoy the serene village atmosphere & the still Virgin beaches ...

"Weekend getaway"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Nov 4, 2016
Away from city's hustle-bustle, quiet, yet beautiful. Nearest beach from town is Digha but it is often over crowded. Hence Mandarmani is an ideal destination for those who look for quality time with their family.

Not much of outdoor activities available there - except few water sports such as speed boat riding, jet ski, etc.

Sunny day, must carry umbrella, cream, camera. Hotel room, food was too expensive, 2500/- minimum cost for one night stay here in Mandarmoni. Shopping here is luxurious, even shopping centers are not here.
