Bakkhali, FraserGanj and Henry Island road trip

Bakkhali is one of the most popular weekend getaways. We recently went to a trip to Bakkhali from Kolkata. We took the Diamond Harbour road from kolkata and reached Diamond Harbour.

After a quick breakfast we headed  for Bakkhali. We reached Namkhana where you have to cross the Hatania-Doania river in a ferry.

We then reached Fraserganj. The sand here is white. The beach is not crowded.

Next stop Bakkhali.

We took a dip in the sea and had lunch at Bakkhali. Next we went to Henry Island. It is a beautiful place. We wend through the mangroves and suddenly in front of us was the  breathtaking Henry Island.

As the sun set it was time to go back home. Bye
