A nice place for a weekend retreat. Old Digha fish market is a place to visit. U can buy fresh fish at cheaper rate and can have it cooked there itself(shops available for cooking fish,meat like u want).Use necessary skin protection creams before getting into the water(must).

This is a very good place for weekend trip. Barrister colony sea beach is the most enjoyable sea Bach. Hard & soft both drink is available in this beach. New digha sea beach is also very good.

If you want to go from Kolkata, there is transport available via Bus and Train, bus leaves from Esplanade area and Train from Howrah. Obviously you can also go in car too.... More
