Mid August this year, I had been to Mandarmani (a newly discovered sea beach in southern West Bengal) with a group of friends.

Now, the obvious question would be - "How was the place?" I could write a lot on this, but to save you from the boredom of reading, here's a short audiovisual that says it all...about how/what I think of this place:



How to get there:
From Kolkata --- VidyaSagar Setu --- Kona Expressway --- Mumbai Road. Drive till Kolaghat and take the left turn (towards Digha). About 2 km before reaching Contai Town you will come across the newly built Contai Bypass Road. Take that road and drive down to a place called Chaulkhola. Turn left from there and follow the (extremely bumpy) village road (about 8km) - just follow the street signs till you hit the beach. Then it's a mindblowing 6km drive down the beach (see pic below).(IMG:http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/7361/mandarmanidrivebeachcs2rj1.jpg)
VERY IMPORTANT: But I would strongly recommend you to reach here during the day because from around 5:30/6:00PM onwards (if not earlier), the sea starts proceeding due to high tide and covers this entire drivable area.

The total time taken to drive down from Kolkata to Mandarmani is approximately 3.5 hours.
