Diamond Harbour – A breezy afternoon

Situated 50 Km. away from Kolkata, Diamond Harbour is the ideal place for a short fun drive or weekend getaways. The riverside at Diamond Harbour is well decorated and well maintained. The view is amazing. Hoogly is so wide it looks like sea. The strong breeze from the river is mesmerizing. Ample seating arrangement is there by the riverside pavement. Also you can enjoy the Jhal Muri, Badam Bhaja, Icecream Bhutta while taking the long stroll along the river. If you want to stay there for a day or two, you can stay at “Sagarika Tourist Center” maintained by West Bengal Tourism Dept. or at “Ganga Bhaban”. On a full moon night, sitting down beside the river, the experience will be out of the world.

From Kolkata take the Diamond Harbour road. You don’t need to turn anywhere. The road straight leads to Diamond Harbour. The condition of the road is fantastic. Drive carefully because the road is two way. You can also reach there by bus from Esplanade or by train from Sealdah.
