Drive away from the city
Sep 2020 • Family

The entire district is situated in the Ganges Delta & is now more popular among pilgrims who come to take a dip in the Holy river.

Just an hour away from the city, this town is a great place to drive to on a Sunday afternoon when traffic isn’t too insane. The sound of the waves gently hitting the rocks has a soothing effect on the mind and is therapeutic
Local fishermen indulge in shrimp farming with locally made nets.

But fresh fish and shrimp

Famous town beside Ganges
Dec 2018 • Friends
This one of the few famous town of South 24 parganas. This town is at the bank of the river Ganges. From here you can see Haldia at the opposite side of the river.

A Quick Weekend Tour
Aug 2017 • Family
The only reason I visited this place was that it is near to Kolkata. There is nothing much to do apart from sitting beside the Ganges and enjoy a pleasant weather.

Had real fun at a resort. Very affordable trip both physically and emotionally. Not to mention avoid week ends for a quiet ambience

wonderful view of the river / sea merger
Jul 2017
One of the busiest places. Though a bit congested, one would love to sit by the side of the river and enjoy the sounds of water splashes. There are lot of small eateries where local fish and other snacks could be enjoyed. One can buy good quality fresh fish also from the local market. Overall a wonderful experience.

Popular because of its proximity to Kolkata!

Nothing much to see. View of Ganga river is enjoyable! Very near from Kolkata. May be ideal for a day long picnic or at most one night stay!

Nice day trip place from Kolkata
Jun 2017 • Family
We had a day outing during the current monsoon. Instead of driving down we took the suburban train to Diamond Harbour and then boarded a Toto (Electric Auto Rickshaw) to the river front opposite the government guest house.
The ambiance, even on a hot and humid afternoon is nice. There are benches to sit on and spend time idly watching the goods ships pass by.
The river front is clean. The fortress, some 2 km away is dilapidated and not worth a look. (However, the pathway up to that place along the river is a good walking trail as long as you can tackle the vehicles passing you you by on the narrow highway)
We did not try the ferry as this was primarily an utilitarian boat rather than a leisure one.

Overall a pretty good and neat place for a day or overnight outing from Kolkata and worth it for a visit every year.
