Bakkhali tourist place Our Holiday Story
A few weeks ago we(me and my husband) just looked at the calendar for a holiday and to decide a tour plan. Suddenly we found that there were 4 holidays together in this year. So we tried to make a holiday plan. That time our first choice was Digha. The train ticket was available but when we called up for accommodation we wandered. We made more than 100 phone calls but there was no room available near the sea beach in Digha. Moreover, some ordinary hotels were demanding a huge room rent like 1500 rupees to 2000 rupees per day. So we decided to go Bakkhali.

First, we took a train in the morning from Sealdah to Namkhana. There is two local sealdah to namkhana train. One is in 5:12 am 7:14 am. You can not find direcly in the rail time table(search sealdah to laxmikantapur ). It takes 2.5 hours.
After that we took a local van for ferighat, fair was 7 rupees per perupeeson. Riksha and Toto are also available. We crossed the river “Hatania-Doania” by paying rupees 1+toll tax 1 rupees per person. After crossing the river again took a van for bus stand by paying rupees 7 again. There are several options for going to Bakkhali Maruti, toto, bus etc. Bus fare is very nominal just 20 rupees, as it is a local journey.
Good news guys! The work of Bakkhali bridge is completed. The bridge is opened now (2019). That means no need to cross the “Hatania-Doania” river. Currently Toto and personal vehicles are crossing this bridge. Its save risk factor and time also.
It will take 1 hr by bus. But we chose Maruti as a private vehicle it reaches the destination by 20 minutes for 350 rupees. Share option is also available. Total journey time is 3.5 hr from Sealdah to Bakkhali. We stay at ”Sea View”. Hotel accommodation is good for family but its far from the beach. Water purifier generator and playground are available. We have to take toto or van to the beach (2 km approx)we stay 3 days in Bakkhali.
The first day we only go to the beach at evening. Investigate for high tide time basically, need to know the “Tide ” time for the bath. At the lean hour, water is far away from the beach.
Lots of local food option offered there by the local shop in Bakkhali sea beach. We eat some see fish and We took dinner at the hotel.
