Mandarmoni is a calm sea-beach in Purba Medinipur District of West Bengal State, one of the southern districts of West Bengal. It is almost 180 KM from Kolkata and just 14 KM from Chaulkhola-more a place on Kolkata-Digha route. The birds dot the sky and little waves wash the very calm, clean beach, as a few fishermen do their daily duty noiselessly. It's just you and the beach, not a second person to disturb you. A tranquil place where you can just relax, swim and enjoy the beach. You are not likely to have many visitors around and that's the beauty of this beach. The climate also suits everybody even in summer days.
A virgin sea-beach
It is not a long past that the present sea beach had no road to access. The road ended at Dadanpatrabar, a village about 3 KM before present 13 KM long sea-beach. The land adjacent to beach had gained importance for shrimp culture. But gradually, tourism overtook its importance due to it's virgin look and serenity. Mr. Deb Dulal Dasmahapatra's initiative has turned it to a pleasant second home for the peace loving tourists today. Shrimp culture as well as tourism runs simultaneously, thus contributing to local economy. Had it been received Government attention towards tourism development, today's Mandarmoni could have been one of the decent sea-beach of the country.
