Tajpur – new virgin weekend beach destination

Tajpur– one of the recently discovered beach destinations of West Bengal is fast becoming popular.

The untouched beach of Tajpur fringed by dense forest of Tamarisk and Casuarinas trees provides an ideal setting for a relaxed weekend holiday away from the humdrum of the city life.
