Midnapore - Medinipur OR Midnapur OR Its pilgrim centers

The Midnapore East District of West Bengal boasts of numerous lovely sea resorts, such as Digha, Mandarmani, Tajpur and Shankarpur which inspire the lovers of sea, sand and sun to visit them round the year and from far off places to spend their family vacations, and have a great time in the serene and tranquil surroundings of these tourist places.


Picturesquely located in the Midnapore East District, and at the northern end of the Bay of Bengal, Digha is a lovely sea resort which happens to be one of the best tourist places in West Bengal. Famous for its lovely beaches, Digha is thronged by thousands of visitors every year. In fact, this place enjoys high popularity as a lovely holiday destination amongst the people of Kolkata, who just love this place and do not seem to have enough of it.

Earlier known as Beerkul, Digha finds mention in Warren Hastings's letters where it is referred to as the Brighton of the East. An English visitor named John Frank Smith also fell in love with this place and he was quick to realize the amazing potential of this place as a sea resort. Much impressed with the site’s potential, he went on to write extensively about this charming place and eventually even convinced the West Bengal Chief Minister Bidhan Chandra Roy to develop this spot into a wonderful beach destination.


It is another beach resort in the Midnapore East District, West Bengal located on the Kolkata - Digha route -- at a distance of nearly 180 km from the Kolkata Airport. The beauty of the beach is that it is not very crowded, unlike other famous beaches of the region. One can enjoy beach cricket, beach volleyball, not to mention boat cruises at this charming tourist place.

This one of Bengal's recently developed tourist hotspot is located near Digha and Shankarpur – both leading sea resorts of the state. Incredible sea beach, sun and surf, untrammeled silt coloured sand...all this makes Mandarmani pretty popular among the visitors. Other attraction of this beach is that it has the longest motorable beach road (13km) in the country.


Yet anther charming sea beach of Bengal, the Tajpur Sea Beach, situated in the Midnapore East District, besides the Bay Of Bengal Ocean, boasts of numerous attractions including Kazu Trees, Red Crabs, Coconuts, etc. No wonder, it inspires visitors round the year. Several Bangla films are routinely shot at the stunningly beautiful locales of this beach, which has numerous budget hotels, resorts and tourist lodges to accommodate the visitors. Tajpur Beach is close to Mandarmoni Beach, Digha Beach, and Shankarpur Sea Beach.


A comparatively recent discovery, Shankarpur is the twin beach of Digha, and located nearly 14 km away from the latter, along the Digha-Contai Road, in the Midnapore East District. This virginal beach – which has a pleasant climate across the year - offers almost all the joys that one may be greeted with at a private sea resort with beautiful casuarina plantations. Shankarpur comes loaded with all the advantages of Digha, and helps lessen the crowd from the latter. The Shankarpur Fishing Harbour Project is the chief attraction of the place, besides, of course, the long, tree-lined beach.
