Unknown to many people in the past Henry Island is slowly becoming a popular tourist destination in Calcutta. For those of you who want to cut themselves from worldly chaos for some days. It is nice place to be. Located near Bakkhali in South of 24 parganas this island is named after the European who surveyed it in 19th Century. There is abundant natural beauty all over. You can see dense mangrove forests parted by numerous canals. What you can enjoy over here are long walks on the un spoilt beaches or simply if you feeling very lazy, just lay on the calm beaches. You will not be disturbed by anyone except one or two fiddler crabs going silently nearby.
Sunsets are wonderful to watch at this place and for a better panoramic view of the whole area you can perch yourself o the top of Sunadri Complex tower and the view from here, is a feast to your eyes. If you are lucky enough you can also watch local fisherman catching fish and may be make some purchase too.
