Mandarmani has emerged as a prominent weekend holiday destination recently, thus attracting the tourists, seeking an escape from the crowded cities. The serene beach of Mandarmani, offers ultimate seclusion very rare to find in other beaches around Kolkata. The resorts of Mandermani offer all kinds of facilities to serve the guests and are decorated with all modern amenities. The sea beach is quite clean and wide here and the sea is ideal for taking a dip. You can also visit nearby beach destinations like Tajpur, Digha, Shankarpur, Talsharee, Udaypore and Junput from Mandermani.
Places to see at Mandarmani: You can always rent a car to take you to the sea mouth, driving all along the beach, which is truly an unforgettable experience. The golden beach and the gentle sea are the main attractions in Mandermani but not to mention the beautiful resorts lining all along the beach and the millions of harmless red-crabs peeping out of their holes in the beach.
Nearby attractions at Mandarmani: Tajpur is a nearby destination, which is visited by many tourists coming to Mandarmoni. The patches of lush green forest surrounding the sea shore is the main attraction of Tajpur. The other nearby attractions include the beautiful Udaipur beach and Talsharee where River Subarnarekha meets the sea.
You can also visit the busy beach town of Digha and the somewhat sleepy beach of Shankarpur. The much less-talked about destination is the Junput beach near Kanthi (Contai) which seems an endless stretch of clay beach and the sea is nearly a mile away.
Things to do at Mandarmuni: Wake up early to savour the spectacular sunrise from the beach. The sunset over Mandarmoni sea beach is also a visual treat. The sea at Mandarmoni is clean and not very rough and it is great for a dip. However, the best part of staying at Mandarmuni are the luxurious resorts where you can soak all the sun and enjoy great food. Mandarmuni is a true family weekend spot.
Best time to visit Mandarmoni: Mandarmoni attracts tourists all through the year. If you are not a rough sea lover avoid full-moon nights, as the sea beach is not available and goes under the water few times a day. Mandermoni is great during the monsoons when the sky is filled with rolling dark clouds and the rain is visible from the distant horizon. Winters are also great at Mandarmoni.
