Playing with the sea wavesOne fine morning, I felt the urge for spending a day in a lonely beach so I searched such beach in Bengal and promptly decided to pay a visit in Mandarmani. I picked up my small luggage and boarded on a bus heading towards Digha from Esplanade bus terminus. After a drive of around 4 hrs I arrived at Chawalkhola from where I hired a local cycle rickshaw that dropped me directly to my pre-booked Hotel Panthatirtha. Hotel authority greeted me warmly and took me to a neatly arranged spacious double-bedded room. The hotel was at a walking distance from the beach so without any delay I kept my luggage in the room and rushed towards beach. There was separate area in the beach where the tourists are allowed to take bath in the sea water. This area is well protected and monitored by the life guards so that no unwanted accidents occur. I found that place and quickly got into the chilled sea water. After playing with sea waves and soaking myself in the salty water for more than a hour, I returned back to my hotel. A delicious lunch along with sea food dishes awaited for me in the hotel. Finishing the lunch I sat on the hotel's balcony ton witness the beautiful sunset at the sea horizon. In the evening I went for a long walk along the sea shore. Then I spent quality time just sitting in the beach to see the high waves coming towards the shore. I also relished the crispy fries of fresh sea fishes while making my feet wet in the sea waves.
Having fun at MandarmaniI didn't want to miss the majestic view of sunrise over the sea, so I woke up early in the morning to capture such beautiful moments. No word can explain the true colours of the beach while the Sun throws its first ray on the sea waves. I was just enchanted by such scenic view and the refreshing atmosphere of the beach in early morning. After having a healthy breakfast accompanied by cup of ginger tea I got ready and went outside to explore Mandarmani. The clean extended beach of Mandarmani is itself so attractive that you don't want to go any other nearby destination. Spending hours in the beach is itself a token of eternal rejuvenation. I wanted to take part in the different sports activities offered by Mandarmani beach so I experienced the thrills of Jetskiing and ATV biking. Then I opted for a pleasant boat ride which took me on a tour around the Delta (Mohona). I strolled through the fishermen' village and tried to know more about their daily struggle and lifestyle. I bought some sea shells and memorabilia from the beach side shops and enjoyed a finger-licking lunch in the local eatery. At late afternoon, I packed my luggage and ride on a cycle rickshaw to reach Digha bus stand. From there I boarded on a bus heading Esplanade (Kolkata) and reached Kolkata in late evening. The solitary beach of Mandarmani sketched a beautiful memory of the trip in my heart with its pure beauty and serenity.
