Ganga Moti Reserved Forest and Jhau Bon
Ganga Moti Reserved Forest and Jhau Bon It is an evergreen mangrove forest located at the eastern end of the beach of Kuakata. As a mangrove forest, Gongamati, like the Sundarbans, offers some protection against tidal surges. However, it too is being threatened by logging and deforestation. The best way to reach the forest is by foot or bike along the beach, where flag-flying fishing boats can be seen trawling the coast. Visiting Gangamati in the late afternoon is a perfect time to watch the sun cast shadows on the exposed mangrove roots.

The most attractive thing at Gangamoti Forest is a series of interconnected lakes.

The evening is the perfect time to view the sun shadows on the abstract exposed mangrove roots of the forest. It is popular to view sunrise and sunset.
