Frasergunj constitutes twin towns near Bakkhali, now forming one continuous locality. Casuarinas trees line the beach. It was named after Sir Andrew Fraser, Lieutenant Governor of Bengal (1903–1908), who discovered the place.

Henry Island is an island near Bakkhali in South 24 Parganas. It is around 130 km from Kolkata. Dense mangrove forest parted by numerous canals covered the area then.
