Its under construction & dirty.Not suitable for elderly.The beach is not kept neatly & we couldnt find place to enjoy the sea view as seating arrangement is improper.

It was a vlean and pristine beach then. Catering to the fishing fleet. We stayed at the Benfish guesthouse. Great views from the beach specially the numerous red crabs shuffling along. The smell for the fish rotting in the sand wasn't too nice though.

This was a long and empty beach. There was a lot of fishing boats and ice making factories. We had rented a small Maximo car from Digha to visit there. I hope you will like this if you are a beach lover.

Beautiful beach can be reach from Mandermani or Digha by taxi or local Motor Rickshaw from Ramnagar,very clam and quite far from crowed, very small waver of sea and cool wind blowing gives a soothing relaxation at morning session, very limited snack stall can be seen here,but the best is the Red Crabs on the beach which looks beach red...
