Mandarmani is a seaside resort village in the state of West Bengal, India. It lies in East Midnapore district and at the northern end of the Bay of Bengal. Mandarmani is connected to Kolkata/Howrah by a highway. It is argued to be the longest driveable beach In India.Mandarmani boasts of a 13 km long motorable beach, probably the longest motorable beach road in India. This is a drive-in beach.

Geomorphologically, this area has relatively low waves than nearer tourist beach of Digha. However still this beach is deposition with formation of neo dunes in several areas specially around Dadanpatrabar.  From Contai this can be travelled through a place called Chaulkhola.

Mandarmani is best reached by road. The nearest train station is at Contai and the nearest airport is at Kolkata.

Pack your bag with light cotton clothes to avoid the summer heat; Don’t miss out to carry sunscreen lotion, as it will help you to minimise the risks of excessive tanning; Before you set out for a drive on the motorable beach, gather information on high tides, because during high tides the water might reach up to the beach level, which can be dangerous.

    I visited Mandarmani last year with my family and have some unforgettable memories of Mandarmani. The place is well known for its exquisite sunrises and sunsets and it is a good place to unwind away from the hectic life of the city. Tourist across the seas comes here to visit the amazing location.
