The location was awesome and especially the sea beach of Digha was a great attraction for the tourists. The atmosphere was so good and the couples were friendly and behaved like our own friend. But the road needs to be improved; otherwise a weekend in Digha is an awesome idea.

Wish you a very happy and safe journey and last but not the least, keep this tourist place as clean as possible (Incredible India).

Enjoyed the tour completely. You will have to take cycle rickshaw from Digha Station to go to Old Digha. Nearest airport is Calcutta Airport. From airport, you can take car to go to their directly in 7-8 hours.

I love holidays and specially on the wide and smooth expressways. I stay in West Bengal and definitely will share my last expressway travel from Howrah to Digha. Whenever I get holiday, I donít forget to go out for long drive with my SUV. I really love long drive as from Howrah to Digha is 200 km long and at average time had taken 5 hours. A drive for 5 hours from Howrah had taken me to an all seasoned ever thronged tourist destination Digha which is awesome sea beach in eastern India. The expressway made to give ultimate driving experience towards a holiday travel and make it ever memorable. The road is super smooth and well made. Driving on it is a pleasure. Here with pleasant sunshine, breeze salty wind, rolling and roaring waves, lush green cashew forest, this beach has become ever popular among the weekend traveller and honeymooners. A stretch of calm sea with considerably shallow water in New Digha provides fun scope for beach swimming. Apart from Beach Strolling, one can enjoy Sun Bathing in the sandy stretches of the beach. It is also best for bike riding for long drive. This tourist expressway only made to offer ultimate driving and travelling experience. It is truly awesome for November but when you have an exploring mind set then you can enjoy every season like me.

It was a khatara car with damaged horn and the journey by car was quite troublesome. Dear friends, please go to Digha by Duronto express from Howrah. Its comfortable and is a 3 hours journey. But the road condition was good. Only the driver was not nice. They just know money, nothing else.
