HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhijit Pal adds, “The sun sets in the horizon to make a spectacular sunset. With the Casurina forest in the background and the blue sky makes an excellent combination. Do not get misguided by the red color of sand – those are the color of crabs, who take time off to take sun-bath. However, if you want to see those from near, they dig deep in the sand and vanish from sight.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Tanmoy Biswas shares, “ The environment was fantastic. I can't describe in one word that how I felt there. The best time to spent there was the sunset-time. I suggest that New Digha is an awesome place for those who love the sea.”

Digha

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.

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.
