Mandarmani – A Seaside Paradise

In the East Midnapore district of West Bengal lies the beautiful seaside resort-village of Mandarmani. A special attraction of Mandarmani is the crawling of the red crabs along the 13 km beach side. It was named Mandarboni initially just after its discovery and it was also known as Madar Mani. But over time, it became popular as Mandarmani.

Things to Do

It is said to be the longest drive-in beach in India. Sightseeing in Mandarmani generally involves a drive around beach side. Since the beach is the primary attraction here people visiting Mandarmani spend their time relaxing, walking around, swimming in the beach and sunbathing. Tourists also tend to indulge in activities such as beach volleyball, fishing, beach cruises among others.                                                               

The food served here is typical Bengali style and the prices are on the higher side since the ingredients have to be brought in from far away markets. Expectation on the food quality needs to be kept in check since the cooks here lack expertise. If one wishes to have large quantity of meals, they have it place the orders beforehand. Tourists here shop for sea shells, handmade jewelry, handicrafts, shell necklace, beach balls, hats.                                                                                                 

Accommodation

Being a seaside village there are a plethora of resorts that offer accommodation.  Tourists can choose between budget resorts and mid-range to semi-luxury resorts – which are the more popular hotels in Mandarmani.

With friends the drive from Kolkata to Mandarmani is awesome

Feb 7, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

100 km from Kolkata in NH is awesome. You would love to drive and would take you maximum 1.5 hours to cover up. But once you take a right turn towards the Mandarmani beach rest 60 Kms not such of a comfortable journey. So I would suggest to start early from Kolkata and cover the whole distance before sunset.

Check-in in a resort and take a room facing towards sea. And enjoy your evening with your loved one in the sea beach. Don't forget to eat in SHer e Punjab while your return to Kolkata. It would be the icing on the cake for your trip. Enjoy.

A good journey

Mode of Transport: Car

Travelling by Car is the most apt option rather than travelling by bus, specially for families. You can take a break mid-way for meals at Shere-Punjab at Kolaghat, an awesome place for dining and refreshments. You can enjoy the ride with excellent roads till Contai and thereafter, the Street roads are somewhat narrow and you will have to move a bit slow to reach Mandarmani. The roads from Contai to Mandarmani needs to be broadened to make the journey smooth and fast.

Good road

Jan 14, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

Road conditions are good. Till Nandkumar/ Haldia crossing it was 4 lane highway. After that its a single road. Avoid driving at night as truck drivers do not cooperate with dimmer at deeper with headlights during night. It causes difficulty in vision of driving.
