With a cobweb of innumerable creeks, canals the tributaries of the river Ganga and 54 small islands the Sundarbans is the natural heritage of West Bengal and is considered as the largest Estuarine Forest in the world.

Fishermen - Digha

Mandarmani is a beach resort in Purba Medinipur district of South Bengal, one of the southern districts of West Bengal. It is almost 180km from Kolkata and just 15km from Chaulkhola on the Kolkata-Digha route. Thousand small crabs crawl around the 13 kms long virgin beach making it look like a simmering field of the red flower mandar.
