Henry's Island Watchtower, NH 117, Henry Island, West Bengal 743339, India
While moving back we went over the watchtower. This has been built to enjoy the view of the Sundarbans forest and we didn’t wanted to miss it. Here’s few of the view to share: the vast stretch of the Sundarbans forest merging with the sea. What a beauty nature has for us to enjoy.

Weekend Getaways from Henry Island  

Kolkata, or Calcutta (also Cal), is a kaleidoscopic melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. There's quite possibly no Indian festival that the city doesn't celebrate with glorious hoopla. Each month sees small festive marquees popping up at every corner of the street and come October, throngs of women enwrapped in silk sarees and red bindis convene around the city, undeterred by the ever-present rains. This celebration alone is reason enough to travel to Kolkata. From the glut of vibrant attractions, the city also holds a rich vehicular heritage ranging from the big yellow taxi that floods both parts of the city (Calcutta and Howrah) divided by the reticent river Hoogly, to the hand-pulled rickshaws and rickety trams meandering the roads. Tourists will hardly ever run out of things to do in Kolkata. Starting from Kumartuli, a traditional potters’ quarter, famed for its sculpted idols of gods and demons, to the architectural spectacle, that is the Howrah Bridge, Kolkata city will engulf you with its sights, sounds and scents. Calcutta’s biggest, most prismatic wholesale flower market on Mullick Ghat, Victoria Memorial, the old Chinatown Tiretta Bazaar, the magnificent Nakhoda Masjid and Jorasankho (Rabindranath Tagore’s ancestral home) are few of the most picturesque places to visit in Kolkata.


About Henry Island

Henry’s Beach is a mangrove forest that is perfect for some alone time over the weekend. It is situated on the western edge of the popular Sundarbans. It is fast becoming known as West Bengal’s favourite beach destination. October to March is the best time to visit the place. It is perfect for nature walks, bonfire nights and bird watching. If you are looking for places near Kolkata, this should feature on your list. Just 50 km south and a two hour drive from Kolkata is a sprightly fort situated on the banks of the River Hooghly. This was once an 18th century fort built by the Dutch which fell to ruins. Transformed into a beautiful hotel which also has lavish bungalows overlooking the river, Raichak is one of the few places near Kolkata that offers a peaceful retreat from the mad rush of city life. Overlooking the Ganges, boat rides here are popular around the time of sunset, and is a suggested activity by everyone who has been here.Distance from Kolkata : 140 Kms
