You'll most likely be walking between your resort and the beach, however if you need to travel longer distances, avoid the temptation to drive on the beach. It's already had an adverse affect on the local ecology, and you'll only be making it worse... stick to the roads. One thing to be mentioned is that from Chawlkhola you will get mechanised/non-mechanised cycle vans which will take you to a place known Dadanpatrabar. Though this is not proper Mandarmani which is about two and half Kms. away but you can stay here also. Worth mentioning are Hirak Jayanti Lodge and Samudra Sakshi Lodge. One thing what everyone should remember before going to Mandarmani is that there are no proper motorable road after Dadanpatrabar. After you reach Dadanpatrabar, you will have to drive through the sea beach. If there is high tide the beach gets partially submerged and sometimes you will have to wait till the low tide starts
The beach - birds dot the sky and little waves wash the very calm, clean beach, as a few fishermen do their daily duty noiselessly.
The loneliness - It's just you and the beach, not a second person to disturb you.
Relax, swim and enjoy the beach. You are not likely to have many visitors around and that's the beauty of this beach. Activities include table tennis, carrom, beach cricket, beach volleyball, and boat cruises.Fishing Sunbathing - only possible from October to February Swimming

Remember : Be careful about "flies". In places like Debraj Resort, those are a menace. Take precaution during your "morning walk". You will find locals relieving on the beach. Don't expect any life post evening. You have to remain inside your hotel.
