Tajpur: Know Everything and Find Best Places to Stay

Tajpur: Know Everything and Find Best Places to Stay

Why is suddenly a lot of people talking about Tajpur?

“At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much.”

This quote by the famous American sailor, Robin Lee Graham perfectly describes how the sea can help us find the important things in life. Furthermore, it helps us to take a break from the humdrum of routine life and the crowds that suffocate our thought and creative side. There are several famous sea beaches in West Bengal, but with fame comes the crowd. The sellers and shops cramp natural marine beauty in places like Digha or Mandarmani. Therefore, if you prefer to relax and rejuvenate your tired soul, Tajpur is the perfect place for this need. It is a well-connected but relatively less explored beach in the East Medinipur district, not very far from Digha even.

Knowing Tajpur in Details

The serene beach in this place lies across a stretch of bay water from Mandarmani, visible from here. Bereft of the cacophony and chaos, the place is unspoilt and free from the pollution common in the nearby beaches. The road that takes you to this place passes through marshy land, large fishing lakes or “Bheris” on one side and the sandbanks by the sea on the other side. The patches of forest comprise dense tamarisk and other species of trees which is another major attraction to this place. The coconut-tree clad beach is a favourite habitat of sea-gulls who spread their wings to the wind at the break of dawn.

The properties here are small but full of all the necessary amenities and luxuries. Thus, if you wish to avoid the rush of the mass and enjoy tranquillity with the song of the sea, Tajpur is the perfect place for you to take the much-needed weekend trip.

Tajpur Beach:

The beach in Tajpur is famous as one of the virgin beaches near Kolkata. It is a yellow-sand beach, which is not affected by the pollution that comes with a heavy tourist rush. Tajpur beach is well-known for its red crab population. Even in the daytime and late afternoon, you can see thousands of red crabs coming out of their hidey-hole and running across the sandy beach. It looks like a red curtain is moving across the beach, leaving an intrinsic design created by the tiny feet, soon to be erased by the constant sea-waves.

Sea-Beach-Tajpur

Sea Beach Tajpur

When you are not taking a dip in the sea, simply sit on the beach in a chair and enjoy the marvel of Mother Nature, along with the magnificent sunrise. You can enjoy beach games and bathe in the sea with friends and family without any interruption on this secluded beach.

Beach food

Moreover, when you are tired from all the running around and famished, you can enjoy the scrumptious beach food. There are a number of small shops and shacks on the beach who provide delicious and fresh seafood dishes, generally made from the early morning fishing. You have to pay in advance and select the dishes though, as they do not store the food.

Fishing-Boat-on-Tajpur-Sea-Beach

Fishing Boat on Tajpur Sea Beach

Relax on the beach in noon or the late afternoon with a chilled can of beer in your hand, which is available in the small shops. However, this is a small place and upon heavy tourist arrival, the stocks tend to run out soon. So, it would be good if you can bring your own supply in an icebox. When the sun sets down, it creates a romantic ambience on the beach. Sit in the hammock or benches by the shacks on the beach and sip the hot tea with fries and snacks, coconut water or a can of beer in your hand. Under the star-studded sky, the long shadows of the trees come creeping on the beach, while you enjoy the endless crushing sea-waves and the amicable sea-breeze removes all the tension and worry from your mind and heart.

Top 10 weekend destinations near Kolkata which are ideal if you do not like the crowd.

The perfect short trip list for the budget traveller

For the working professionals, the motivation for earning the loaves and fishes is the primary objective, which can often result in a stressful life. For those who are seeking peace and a bit of solitude from this daily grind and pressure, a weekend break is the most welcoming thing after a hectic week. While you can relax and detoxify yourself in the place which resonates with your soul, the wrong place only adds to the stress. Kolkata, the capital of one of the most diverse and sweetest parts of India, is a well-connected place with so many transport options. Not only there is a steady increase in the number of the weekend destinations from the city of joy, but also the well-known weekend destinations are often tainted with crowds, which reduces the natural charm of the place. Without much ado, here goes a list of a few aesthetically pleasing and not so-typically crowded budget-friendly weekend destinations from Kolkata, which are experienced first-hand by someone just like you, for those for whom travel is a passion and a source of solace.

The place lies only about 6 hour’s car journey away from Kolkata. The Nomadic Resort Baranti, at the bank of the lake, offers a beautiful view of the waterbody from the windows and the lawn. The early morning sunrise from here can be a great start for the day which will then go on to a hike on Baranti hills, visit the Panchet Dam in the afternoon and the sunset over it. When there is a group of people traveling, you can take out the guitar and jam under the star-covered sky with music and delicious food in hand too. Winter chills can offer the most in this place with the fresh vegetables, birds in the lakes and the rays of sun over the departing fog. For those who are interested in butterfly watching, July-August months can be a good time for it too in the grassy trails around the property. One may even doze off sitting with the hooks and lines in search of a fish on the bank of the lake, and the expert anglers will be prized with the tasty catches, which can then be prepared in the resort kitchen into mouth-watering dishes. For the shopaholics, Raghunathpur village is a must visit the place from here for the exquisite Tussar Sarees and other handicraft items.
