Tajpur: Incredibly “ A beach for yourself”. In fact, one may get a feeling of ‘owning’ the beach. Tajpur is one of the most secluded beaches in India. Tajpur beach is about 180 kms from Kolkata , lies in the Purba Medinipur district of South Bengal, one of the southern districts of West Bengal. Tajpur is one of Bengal’s recently discovered tourist destination that lies close to ever-popular Digha and Shankarpur. This beach is slowly becoming popular among the tourists, although the beach here is usually exposed only when the tide ebbs. The casuarina trees, kissed by the gentle breeze at Tajpur are a soothing sight.

 

Tajpur as a weekend trip option from Kolkata  will take you far from the maddening city crowds.  Tajpur is the new place to be and  little less explored, something that still had the smell of fresh sea breeze, the feel of untrampled sand. This small beach is full  of red crabs is the paradise for  nature lovers and  the place where a river meets the sea. The estuary ( mohona)  is perhaps the reason for the  crazy waves here.

The speciality of Tajpur is that, despite the influx of tourists and revelers in its close vicinity, this place still retains its virgin, remote-village characteristic, with not even the basic urban amenities of life, including electricity. It is almost unpopulated, consisting just a small hamlet of fisherfolks, a wide, hard motorable appraochway connecting it to the state highway and a wide variety of fauna—including the almost extinct Gangetic Wild Dolphin (sighting of which, though depends absolutely on luck), the depleting Olive Ridley Turtle (a seasonal species that comes ashore to lay eggs) and a variety of birds, including cranes, different species of ducks, the common bulbul, magpies etc.

 

Things to do

Nothing much to do except  bathing at the sea, enjoying the long lonely beach, exploring the casuarinas jungle and relax.
