Bakkhali Beach

Bakkhali Beach

Bakkhali Beach, Bakkhali Beach tours, Visit Bakkhali Beach of West Bangal, Travel to Bakkhali Beach, Beaches and LakesAt Bakkhali, the beach is long and sandy, the waves twinkling in the sunlight. Dense casuarinas groves drape the beach. Red fiddler crabs march in line on the beach.

It is so near Calcutta and yet so very diverse from the bustling metropolis that is Calcutta. Bakkhali is only 132 km from Calcutta.

From Calcutta to Namkhana by bus (105 km.), then a short diversion by the ferry across the Hatania Doania River, and then another hour and a half bus journey to Bakkhali.

How To Get There

: If the prospect of this long journey by road seems very tiring, one can always opt for a train from Sealdah (South) Station, which goes to Keronjia, after which the visitor has to board a bus for Namkhana.

Road : Buses leave Calcutta for Namkhana throughout the day (6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.) from the Shahid Minar bus terminus. Buses can also be boarded at Belghoria and Garia. At Namkhana, one has to cross the Hatania-Dowania River by ferry or barge, from where private buses take the passengers to Bakkhali.

There are buses from Salt Lake, which halt at Shahid Minar terminus, cross the barge at Namkhana and then go on directly to Bakkhali. These buses take five hours to reach Bakkhali and charge Rs. 40 per head.
