Mandarmoni and Tajpur is a large and fast developing seaside resort village of West Bengal. The main attraction here are the red crabs crawling all around the 13 km long beach.During high tide period in rainy season, the beach becomes inaccessible. Very high tide reaches the hotel compound.This is arguably the longest drivable sea beach in India.
Shankarpur is in between Mandarmoni and Digha. It is a recently developed sea beach resort. It is also a big fishing harbour. The harbour is always busy with trawlers and fishing boats. The beach is vast and flat with solid sands bordered by high sand mounds and casuarina plantation. The beach is truly calm and quite with exceptionally fewer tourist. A few good hotels & lodges, both Govt. and private, are now available here.
The journey is not that hectic. The tourists have to get down at Chawlkhola More from the buses going to Digha and will get local transport to Mandarmoni. The hotels can arrange a pick up service from the bus stop as well if informed earlier. Tajpur lies between Mandarmani and Shankarpur. It has also around 1400 acres of land dedicated to Pisciculture.
