Ganga Sagar (Sagardwip) in Monsoon (June - September)

Monsoon season in Sagardwip lasts from June till September. The south-west monsoon winds brings rain in abundance and being a marshy area, the whole place becomes muddy. Transportation to and from the island is disrupted because the ferry rides depend on tides and ocean current. Ideally, you should avoid travelling to Sagardwip during this time. But the whole place looks completely mesmerizing and the heavy rainfalls are also accompanied by mist which makes Sagardwip look magical. The pristine and pious Ganga River comes alive after being dried up in the summer season.

A number of beautiful hotels provide you with the best amenities so that you can spend the day relaxing. But, if you want to roam around exploring the pristine temples and enjoy the various water sports, this is not the right time of the year to visit Sagardwip.
