Tourism Hub at Digha : Call to Developers

The following has been published today:


  1. Now....this one is amazing..... Are we going to concentrate only on Digha for the time being or do we have some major plans for MandarMani, Tajpur, SankarPur beaches as well?

  2. I searched for "How to Reach Madarmani" in Web and this what I got in one of the websites.

    To Quote directly from the website:
    2 km before reaching Contai Town you will reach Contai Bypass Road, a shortcut that will again drop you on the Kolkata-Digha road. Drive another 10 km to reach Chawalkhola. Take a left turn from Chawalkhola and follow the village road till it ends at a sea-side village called Dadanpatrabar, around 8km. From Dadanpatrabar take a right turn along a narrow road that runs for another 2-3 km. At the end of this road, you can either drive straight along the sand or take a right turn again through a narrow village road to reach Mandarmani. The village road is just a soil road with dense vegetation and some population on both sides. There are no lights or any other amenities. This runs for another 3-4 km. It's best to cover the whole stretch from Chawalkhola to Mandarmani before dark.


    We have to make this experience very pleasant to make these places a tourist destination. Can we develop the villages on the way as "fishermen villages" or on some concept theme like that? Can we make the roads big, wide 4-laned and non-potholed?
