Take a local bus from the Diglipur Bazaar and visit Kalipur Beach. With unusual volcanic grey sand and crystal clear water, this beach is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Though you should watch out for jellyfish which are found in abundance here. Kalipur is special because it is one of the few beaches in the world where four species of sea turtles - Olive Ridley, Leather Back, Hawksbill and Green turtles - come to nest their eggs. A hatchery has been constructed on the beach for the turtles, so if you’re lucky, you may even see the endearing sight of baby turtles making their way into the sea.
