Bankiput Beach near Contai
Bankiput is an unexplored beach in Bay of Bengal
Surrounded by a dense forest of Casuarina trees located very near to Kolkata. You would hardly find any mortal soul on the beach accepting the millions of red crabs popping their heads from their burrows. At Bankiput, it’s only the sea – the sand – and the silence for you. No speeding cars on the beach and no picnicking crowds would spoil your day at Bankiput. If you have always dreamt of spending a day in a completely deserted beach lending your ears to the chirping birds and the crashing waves then Bankiput is the place to be this weekend.
