Talsari is a place where the river meets the sea. The beach is actually started from the ending line of the river Subarnreka and ended in the sea Bay of Bengal. Apart from the serenity, you can find here the river estuary and sea beach as well. This is the uniqueness of this beach. Talsari is situated in the Baleswar district of Odisha, which is the borderline of Odisha and Bengal. It is the less exploited beach of Odisha as it predominately customized for fishing rather than tourism. So, if you get bored in regular sea beach and want to enjoy some different kind of beach, visit Talsari beach and explore its Uniqueness.
How to go to Talsari?
We visited Talsari from Digha. We went Digha of Paschim Medinipur ( Bengal) by Train ( Buses are also available from Kolkata) from Howrah and after spending a day in Digha, we visite Talsari by a local cab. Motor van and Toto are also available from Digha to reach Talsari at the cost of 200-300 Rs ( for 10 Km).
Nearest Airport– Bhubaneswar (300Km) from Odisha side and Kolkata (190 Km) from Bengal side
Nearest Railway station– Jaleswar (36Km) in Odisha side and Digha (10 Km) from Bengal Side.
How to explore Talsari?
The name Talasari is derived from the two words Tala which means Palm and Sari or Sarani is the row. The palm trees surrounding the place give such a name to it. The word Tala also means rhythm, which is reflected in the sea waves lapping against the shore.
The Beach Island:
As very few tourists visit this place, you can enjoy the full tranquillity of the beach. Walking in the early morning on Subernarekha River is an awesome experience. Subernarekha River is accessible by foot throughout the daytime. But, when the tides come, you have to take a boat to reach the main beach. The tides come gradually. The bike ride on the river bed which have little water is really thrilling. You can enjoy the bike ride at the nominal cost of Rs-50. The Sunrise on this beach is amazing. I didn’t see it but I heard it from the locals.
This beach is customized for fishing. Here you can see a different kind of fishing art and also you can buy the fishes, prawn, crab in the cheap rate from the fishermen. The whole beach is covered with the red crab. As you step on the beach, the crabs near your feet just go to the hole in the sand to hide. It’s really difficult to hold them in hand as they always try to escape in the fear of predators.
There are local attractions like Chandaneswar (4 km), Kirtaniya (23 km on the way to Bhushandeshwara), Bhushandeshwara Temple (26 km) and Udaipur beach (6 km) from OTDC Lodge of Chandaneswar. I always suggest staying Talsari instead of Digha at the OTDC lodge of Talsari or Chandaneswar and visit Digha in a day trip. Digha is really overcrowded. A weekend spent in a tranquil land where the blue sky meets the green palm trees and the river meets the sea is a lifetime experience.
