Travel to Kuakata after Corona
Kuakata is one of the tourist areas of South Bengal. However, if you look at Kuakata today, it will seem like a lonely town on a deserted beach. This coastal tourist center has come to a standstill due to the impact of Corona. But the atmosphere here seems to have regained the taste of freedom. Sea life blooms on this deserted beach. Groups of crabs have started arriving more than ever on the noiseless beach. The coconut trees on the beach have become greener and brighter. Nature has become more alive than before. The presence of oysters sleeping silently on sandbanks has increased. Plastic bottles or packets of chips do not float in sea water. Only the roar of open waves in the blue ocean. Now there are no tourists in Kuakata to enjoy such nature.
Kuakata tourism is not made up of only one beach. Apart from beaches, several tourist spots double the excitement of Kuakata travel.
