Bakkhali Reviews

Bakkhali is a popular weekend getaway from Kolkata. It has a beautiful sea beach which remains uncrowded, unlike other beaches in West Bengal. There is not much to do at this place, except for sitting and gazing at the waves. We were advised not to take a dip in the sea as the place supposedly has quicksand. It is basically a rural area so one cannot expect to have modern amenities and services like in cities.We stayed here for two days, and returned on the third day. We also travelled to a Crocodile Breeding Centre from Namkhana, by boat. The boat ride was a pleasant experience. Since we drove to the place during Holi, there was a lot of traffic on the way, so it is advisable to opt for trains if you are visiting during any special occasion.

Excellent road condition from Kolkata. It is recommended that you reach Naamkhana JT by 9.00AM to avoid congestion and save time. ETTF Esplanade to Naamkhana JT is 3 hours (Non stop) if you start by 5.30 AM. After crossing the JT at Naamkhana, the drive to Bakkhali is very soothing. This drive will take approximately 40 minutes to Bakkhali beach.

- Bakkhali is yet to be acquainted with the developments the rest of the world seems to be taking for granted, especially when it comes to plastic money. ATMs and credit cards are not widely accessible. Cash is the only thing accepted at most places. Some bigger hotels and eating joints do accept credit cards, but they are far and few in number. - Also, to be on the safe side, always buy packed food wherever available. Vegetarian food may get hard to find and you may not always be in the mood for non-veg food.

A great getaway in West Bengal. Exotic beaches. The crescent shaped beach is a rare in the world, offering spectacular views of both sunrise and sunset.

  What's not so Great?

The location is very remote. Summers are extreme. Can be crowded during the holidays.

For Whom

Bakkhali is a great getaway for people living in and around West Bengal. It is ideal for a short trip, to get rejuvenated by the beach.
