About New Digha

50%
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.

Just go and sit on one of the rocks and look at the sea; you will feel very peaceful and all your tensions and problems will get lost in the sea for some time. Wonderful place to calm your mind.

"Wonderful to be in New Digha beach" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
I have visited New Digha sea beach just a week ago. We reached very early in the morning at the sea beach to observe the beautiful sunrise. You can take a sip of lemon tea sold by local hawkers.

We left the beach at 9am, returning from the beach we visited a nearby restaurant. A variety of multi cuisine dishes are available there including fish fry made of local vetki fish, pomfret fry, fish lollipop are popular there.

After 11am people gathered in the beach for swimming in the Bay of Bengal. You can hire speedboat to view the sea sight also. It's a wonderful place to visit the place for a one day tour.

"Fine beach with lots of fun things to do" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
The only properly bathable beach in Digha is the new Digha beach. It is a must visit place if you are visiting Digha. You can have fuchka, sit and chat, can play games or can just stroll around the beach anytime except during high tides. The most sought after thing is the fish fries available on both sides of the walkway up to the beach.

Try to go for a bath in the morning and to spend some leisure time in the evening. I am sure you will enjoy every bit of your being here. Avoid carrying your valuables to the sight but always wear your slippers.

It is always awesome to be in Digha with friends/family. I have visited there with my friends group during last summer to avoid the scorching heat of the Kolkata. And we had a lots of fun there, specially the breeze that blowing through the sea beach throughout the night. We cherish those beautiful moments of our trip.

"Nice weekend getaway with friends"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We visited this place during October (2014) when the cyclone 'Hudhud " had hit the shores of Bay of Bengal. We were not sure initially whether to visit this place during the cyclone. Finally we decided to pack our bags and leave for this place. It was a perfect weekend getaway with friends.

Do try Crabs and Prawns in nearby restaurants. Beware of pickpockets.

And for ladies out there there is an advice - beware of cheap people there who might try to take advantage in a wrong way.

"Fried fishes after sunset"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted May 11, 2015
It's good for Bengali people to frequently jump into Digha in the weekend, easy to go and there are plenty of hotels to accommodate every class of people. Main attraction must be fried fishes at beach area after sunset.
