Reasons to go to Digha

1A Drive To Digha
A Drive To Digha

Any Kolkatan will swear by this road journey, Most of them have taken it atleast 4 times during their lifetime. There’s reason to, too! The road is basic and pleasing, great for revving up your vehicles, lined with green patches all throughout. Digha is a favorite weekend trip option for many East Indians for its short and sweet appeal. Walk along the beach or ride a pony in the shallow waters, two days here will take your mind off things and let you relax. This route in India is dotted with plenty of Dhabas, so eating along the route isn’t a problem. The road stretches for 180 kilometres and travel time is almost 3 hours. Enjoy the delightful drive, clicking snaps all the way! HolidayIQ Traveller Arnab Dutta shares, “Since Kolkata is a city full of traffic and roads are terrible, hence, a drive along the highway to Digha is quite comforting. If weather is cool then the drive becomes more better which in our case was good as it was a winter day. Its a total of 180 km from the outskirts of Kolkata to reach Digha. One has to pass by a lot of small towns which are very crowded so driving has to be proper. Moreover since almost of the distance is single road and narrow highway so one always has to be cautious about the traffic which usually are tourist buses and car”

Nice place. About 5 sea beach. Charming scenary. Available star rated hotels, guest house. Cheap level to business class available room . Govt holiday home available . But problem is communication . No available train from Kolkata or other places, no airport facilities, no available bus. You have to wait for that or depend on your own car. Otherwise everything good. Beat to enjoy Digha trip should be at least 3 days. Best is sea food in udaypur beach and many more .

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.

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.
