About New Digha

voted as clean

New Digha is an extension of the older part of Digha and has many hotels and other accommodation facilities that make it a hotspot among tourists. Apart from the beach, a very new addition to the list of attractions is the Science Centre that was founded by the National Council of Science Museums.

The science centre helps to enjoy as well as learn some science. The centre also has a park that represents the Jurassic Age. Besides, Digha also hosts one of the biggest Marine Aquariums in India, just opposite the Digha Hospital. A park with the Amravati Lake offers opportunities for boating. Deepak Mitra’s Snake Farm is located very near the lake.

"Huge Crowd on Beach"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This beach is full of crowd. More or less there is no place to relax. Also you have to have luck to take Bath on the beach.

You have to pay huge price to buy anything. Please do not carry huge money with you. This place is not good for that.

Probably the most visited sea beach in West Bengal, Digha is one of the popular tourist destination in India. When you are planning for a 2-3 day vacation with family or friends, Digha can be a perfect option, if you are in West Bengal - preferably Kolkata.
Time has taken its toll and Digha is not a virgin beach anymore; since it is crowded by thousands during most of the times of the year, yet there are small beaches like Talsari and Mandarmani, close to Digha which are less crowded and are more tempting for the ones who prefer peace and serenity amongst loneliness. If you want numbers, there are over a lakh footfalls each year in Digha.
Probably all bongs have some memorisation moments associated with Digha - be it their childhood, adolescence or adulthood. I have been of no exception to this rule - Digha has always been a special retreat for me as a child and I always cherish those golden days I had enjoyed with my family.

Awesome beach sides. Marble finishing boundaries to sit and food of many varieties. Many things to buy from this place. People are too good. Police protection and safety is also there.

"Walk away from the crowd following the coastline"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 19, 2016
If you stay in the crowded region then this would feel like just another beach of India but if you dare to walk away from the crowd following the coastline the beauty of the beach would unfold.

There are lots of activities to do in the beach here. Horse ride, shooting games, tasting foods, banana ride over water thrive in the beach during day time. During night time the beach is much less crowded compared to old Digha.

New Digha will appeal to all kinds of travellers. The fun seekers, the crowd lovers and also the solitude seekers like me!

I followed the coastline in the morning at about 8AM and kept on walking away from the main beach and then I was in a totally empty patch of the beach. So serene it was. I hiked up to the nearby small hill and took loads of photos!

Peak season for visiting Digha is winter and off-season is summer whereas Spring and Autumn can be considered the shoulder season. Mornings and evenings are the best time of the day to explore the beach, particularly in summer when the Sun glares up in the sky after 11 AM.

Oh well don't forget to swim in the sea! It's fun!

"Excellent place to relax"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 13, 2016
New Digha is excellent location to spend holidays. Railways are connected. Duronto Express runs from Kolkata. One can get A/C Volvo bus from Kolkata whole day from Dharmatala, Kolkata. Very comfortable journey. It takes 4 and 1/2 hours to reach. Very good beach to spend holidays.

"Good Beach with lower average tourists"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Mar 8, 2016
New Digha is having a very good Beach with lower average tourists and without boulders so you can swim and enjoy. People here are below average class and I found the crowd very cheap here.

Disadvantage are the hotels are not very close to the beach, you need to go few distance to the sea.

Good for family trips and recreational purpose. Must see the sunrise and sunset with the coconut water... :) "Gem of place in West Bengal". 2 days trip to Digha Beach was really awesome. Ok for a weekend gateway. You can find many budget hotels very near to beach.

"Better than Old Digha"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Feb 15, 2016
The beach is better here compared to Old Digha. Market is also good around the beach. Government has taken new initiatives to improve this area. Besides for bathing in the sea it is more comfortable here as deposits of sand is less.
