Located about 14 km from Chaulkhola, Mandarmani is known to have the longest drivable beach in India. One of the fastest growing tourist attractions of West Bengal, it is located in the East Midnapore district of West Bengal. Known as Mandarboni by the locals, the village offers a peaceful atmosphere for tourists to unwind.
An ideal spot to watch the sunrise, the Mandarmani beach offers water sport facilities like surfing, jet skiing, banana boat rides, ATV bikes and bungee trampoline. Several water and beach sports are conducted during the Digha-Mandarmani festival held in January. The festival also showcases several Bangla bands who perform on a temporary stage built on the beach. For those of you who love to shop, the objects and ornaments made from seashells and oysters are a must have.
The beach is the primary attraction offering tourists to enjoy the sea from early morning to late afternoon. From 3 PM onwards, people head out nearer resorts where beach bikes, ropeway etc. can be availed. There are also a string of local shops selling shells, handmade jewellery and handicrafts. A few locals also offer groups to take trip towards the mohana (Estuary) during sunset.
