Mandarmani is a quiet, serene and pristine beach resort in West Bengal. This recently developed beach resort is now slowly becoming popular among the travellers. Mandarmani has a 13 km-long beach which is motorable. This is perhaps the longest motorable beach road in India. Mandarmani has the possibility of becoming a hot tourist destination as it lies close to the popular beaches at Digha and Shankarpur.
Since it is a quiet beach, the only thing to do is to relax, swim and enjoy a walk on the seashore. The beauty of the beach is that visitors are unlikely to disturb. The beach is not frequented by foreign tourists and as such one may keep in mind of the local culture while planning a sunbath.
A major attraction in Mandarmani is Mohona delta, situated at 6 km from the main beach. The shoreline is lined by trees. The tourists can engage in activities like a
ride on ATV Bikes on the beach, ride Jet Ski to surf the sea, ride on sea with several people sitting on a banana-shaped boat and bumpy rides on waves.
There is no electricity on the beach and after dark it is difficult to loiter in the beaches. Besides, as the evening progresses, there may be high tides in the sea. It is advisable to get information on high tides while walking on the shore or swimming.
It is advisable to carry sunscreen lotion as it may help you to minimise the risks of excessive tanning. It is also advisable to carry essential medicines as it may be difficult to get medicines during an emergency.
