Tajpur is a sparsely populated fishing hub on the coast of the Bay of Bengal, 180km from Calcutta. The beach is lined with casuarina trees. Flying cranes and birds you donít know by name give you company as you feel the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the sea breeze on your face.
During low tide, the sea retreats nearly 2km leaving behind colourful shells and stones that are a collectorís delight on the muddy white sand.
It is safe to take a dip in the sea. Just be careful about the stone chips that remain embedded in the sand.
Even if you are not game for a swim, you will not be bored. Just sitting on the shore alone or with your loved one is very pleasant.
Walk to a lagoon on the beach. It looks like a painting against the backdrop of the sea.
