Digha has two parts - New Digha & Old Digha. I prefer the hotels in Old Digha as many of those are just beside... More

I visit this place often. An ideal place for every sort of visitor. Long beaches, a great place to shop and eat. Wonderful seafood and hotels to fit every pocket. Choose to bask in the sun or splash into the waters. Enjoy a great leisurely weekend.
