Not as good as the beaches in Orissa.

Yes, the view, the overexcited tourists, the infidel men and women, all of this adds up to your entire experience. But then the sea-food isn't that good. At least I've had better... read more

Yes, the view, the overexcited tourists, the infidel men and women, all of this adds up to your entire experience. But then the sea-food isn't that good. At least I've had better sea-food in Orissa and Tamil Nadu. You get cheap as well as costly hotels near the sea-beach. Do avoid going there during national holidays or during the new... More

After a 5.30 hours journey from Kolkata you will reach New Digha. I visited there at the 2nd weekend of May. It was a rather cloudy day. The sea here is exiting but the beach is dirty and really overcrowded. You can play here with the waves but you cant get a peaceful place to watch the sea. The evenings... More

The Sea beach is firstly muddy. Secondly waves are too small for anybody to enjoy proper Sea-bathing. Thirdly there are treacherous places in the water in which accidents happen every year. Boulders are strewn to arrest encroachment of land by Sea. The entire beach area is strewn with plastic cups,coconut shells,nick nacks and what not ! The place is full... More

The place is overhyped & there's lack of basic amenities for a comfortable travel & stay. I would suggest visiting other places like Balasore or Chandipur beach instead.

Digha beaches used to be much better in the past, with lesser people and shops, etc. Although much has been done recently to improve the atmosphere around Old Digha, but lots more need to be done. I'd recommend visiting Old Digha for a few hours, and then go and stay at New Digha. On the flip side, security in New... More

This was a visit in May 2015 with a friend, although I have been to Digha and to its beach many times before in my life. This time it was with a friend for a day only,and this place keeps making me cringe as its way too dirty and teeming with utterly mad mad crowd. On any given weekend,Digha is... More
