Henry's island is an offbeat tourist destination hugging the western boundary of the greater Sunderban region, and dotting the south-end corner of the 'Mouths of the Ganges'. Kilometers of empty beach, placid sea, clear sky and excellent food are some of the attractions of this island. In recent years the place has gained prominence and is slowly making its mark as a budget friendly sought after destination.
A few years ago, the West Bengal Government decided to turn into a tourist spot. Today, there are two beach resorts - the Magrove Resort and Sundari resort, located on the island. More often than not, you will have the beaches mostly to yourself, except for a lone red crab or two scampering across the sands. There is a watchtower inside the Sundari Tourist Complex, from where you can get excellent views of the natural scenic beauty, and sometimes lucky glimpses of the surrounding wildlife.
