    It's better to have your own vehicle.

    To reach Frasergaj/ Bakkhali you can travel by road( 140KMs) or take EMU train upto Namkhana port then cross the Ferry ( see picture) and then by bus to Fraserganj 23KMs. But it will be better if have own vehicle or take a car taxi from Kolkata as hiring a taxi at the island may prove to be expensive.

    BAKKHALI IS 132 KMS ROAD DRIVE FROM THE CITY OF KOLKATA. LOCAL TRAINS ARE ALSO THERE BUT UPTO NAMKHANA, ABOUT 30KMS BEFORE. BUT THE TOURIST TRAVEL ONLY BY BUS OR CAR. THE ROAD UP TO NAMKHANA IS GOOD BUT NOT WELL MAINTAINED. THOUGH UPTO DIAMOND HARBOUR THE ROAD IS THE PART OF NATIONAL HIGHWAY, BUT HEAVY TRUCKS GOING OUT OF THE PORT HAVE DAMAGED THE ROAD. THE OTHERSIDE OF NAMKHANA THE ROAD UPTO BAKKHALI LIGHT HOUSE IS EXCELLENT. THE TOTAL TIME TAKEN FROM KOLKATA IS ABOUT FOUR HOURS TO FIVE HOURS AS ONE HAS TO CROSS FERRY AT NAMKHANA ( THE HATANIA/DOANIA RIVER) INCLUDING THE VEHICLE . FERRY CROSSING CHARGE IS RS.150/- PLUS TAX OF LOCAL MUNICIPALITY RS.20/- BUS FARE FROM KOLKATA IS ABOUT RS.100/- PER HEAD. WEST BENGAL ROAD TRANSPORT CORPN. OPERATES DIRECT BUSES FROM ESPLANADE TO BAKKHALI SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.
