Breathtakingly beautiful with clean & serene beach with medium waves, saluburious climate and friendly people, Mandarmani is a must watch destination.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The food at the hotel was sumptous and reasonably priced. Frolicking on the beach, having a ride on the bike on the beach, visiting small shops selling sea articles are some of the things I savour.

Activities & things to do: The beach here is one of the best in India. Not only it is amazingly beautiful, but it is safe also. The ride on the bike on the beach was one of the most poignant memories I have had.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Only 180 kms from Kolkata, the road is OK. It takes about 5 hours to reach from Kolkata, with a break in Kolaghat.

This is an ideal destination for weekend trip; and this place is not far away from Kolkata. You can take your own car. Most of the hotels have parking places. This is better than Digha. Nowadays, Digha has lots of people and it is overcrowded........ More

"Mandarmani, the lovely destination"

It is a picturesque place. The lonely beach, the friendly villagers, an occasional coconut vendor and the floating fishing boats on the blue horizon will take you mentally to a far away place. A leisurely walk along the beach, or a drive on....... More
