"Digha - the Goa of the East." I'm really impressed by the new tourism initiatives by the West Bengal Government. This is a perfect weekend retreat for the people living in and around Kolkata. I have been here twice since childhood and seen the place change from nothing but a simple town to what it is now. * The beach... More

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.

Its a very good place to visit with friends particularly, not very expensive yet luxurious. The beach is not very clean yet very crowded and full of fun. 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

Read the complete review at: http://worthavisit.blogspot.in/2014/04/digha-beach.html Old Digha or New Digha? New Digha Pros: The place is very calm. The beach is not too crowded. You can enjoy adventure sports. It is near to railway station. Cons: There is literally nothing apart from Hotels and Beach on New Digha Side. There are no food joints or restaurants in New Digha....

Very gushing water waves unlike Goa and other western beaches.. this really takes your heart away.. the Mandarmani beach was quieter and less dingy than the old Digha beach.. The scarlet colour of the sky that reflects on the sea is really amazing.. Njoyed the water scooter withing the waves was really njoying.. A short trip for a day or... More

Well, Digha is a pleasant place to visit, especially if you want to get out of monotonous stress. A visit of 2-3 days would be the best. If you wanna take a bath, then I suggest you to go to Old Digha. It's just 15 minutes away from New Digha and proper transport facilities are available.Market of New Digha beach... More

Digha is less than 200Kms from Kolkata ( Calcutta ), India and well connected by Rail & road. The journey by train excludes the hassles of road travel but I personally prefer to travel by car. Digha has two parts - New Digha & Old Digha. I prefer the hotels in Old Digha as many of those are just beside... More
