Junput

Junput [1] is in Southwest Bengal in India.

Get inEdit

Junput is about 9 km from Contai town and is 40 km away from Digha by bus. From Kolkata side you have to drive to Contai and then take a left turn towards Junput. It is basically a small fishing village. There is no beach as such in Junput.

Get aroundEdit

If you go there having the sea in your mind then you will be quite disappointed. The water has shifted far off from there and the only thing left is white muddy sand. The sand too is only visible at either Gopalpur (not the one in Odisha, this one is about 2km from Junput) or Haripur. At Gopalpur, one could find a beautiful beach with fir trees and red crabs along the beach. Be sure to go during the high tide. The fir trees provide an wonderful place for picnic. The beach is really deserted and is very tranquil.

SeeEdit

  • Brackish water fish Cultivation and Research Center
  • The little woods just behind the resort

DoEdit

Leisurely walks on the beach and picnic in the fir tree plantations.


BuyEdit

Fresh fish from the local fishermen or bone-dried fish (Shutki)if you can survive the stench.

EatEdit

Eating places are a rarity and the only place you will be able to eat is the Resort. They have a package system charging Rs 275-300/- per head for Bed Tea-breakfast-Lunch-Snacks-Dinner. The food is not really very nice though.

DrinkEdit

You can have lots of fresh coconut water. There are no bars or liquor shops in Junput.
