Weekend leisure time I

Digha is divided into two places . Old Digha and new Digha. Old Digha is the oldest beach in west Bengal. Market was established on basis of this. All the major bank atms are situated in the old Digha. New Digha is a kind of planned city. New Digha consist of bus depot, most of the hotel are situated in this location. Water sport is available there. Old and new Digha is crowded. If someone is looking for a offbeat location they can visit the surrounding beaches e. G. Mohona, Udaypur, Talshari, Mondarmoni. It takes hardly one day to visit all the spots.

Digha Overview

History of Digha

Digha is located in the East Midnapore District and at the northern end of the Bay of Bengal. Lying 187 km away from Kolkata and at an average elevation of 6 m above sea level, Digha is the most popular sea resort of West Bengal.Originally known as Beerkul, it was discovered by the British in the late 18th century. Warren Hastings, the first Governor-General of India, described Digha as "Brighton of the East" in one of his letters to his wife.

People and Culture of Digha

The Digha Beach is popular for its views of the Bay of Bengal amidst the many casuarina plantations along the seaside. The sea at Digha is mostly calm and shallow up to a mile off the beach, which makes it makes it safe for various marine activities like swimming, scuba diving, jet ski-ing, and surfing.Lately, due to the erosion of the beach leading to a receded land space, as well as for cleanliness reasons, a new Digha Beach has been developed as an extension to the old Digha beach, at a distance of 2 km from it. Visitors can also head to two other nearby spots: the Udaipur Beach and the Shankarpur Beach, which are relatively untouched.

Things To Do in Digha

The latest attraction of Digha is the recently built Science Centre. Digha also boasts of the largest aquarium in India, the Aquarium of Zoological Survey of India. Some of the other tourist places in the region include Subarnareskha River, Talsari, a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva; the Subarnareskha Delta and the Mandarmani Beach.

Digha has its own railway station and is well connected to Howrah and Kharagpur. Direct buses ply from Esplanade (Kolkata) to Digha on a frequent basis. The Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata is the nearest airport.
