Digha is a beach destination that is just 5 hours away from Kolkata by road. Hailed as West Bengal's go-to holiday location, it is a vast expanse of scenic beach washed by the waters of Bay of Bengal. The entire shoreline that extends throughout the premises of Digha has been divided into two parts, namely Old Digha and New Digha. Other attractions in Digha include an extensive aquarium that houses the local aquatic fauna, quaint beach sides and a scenic temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
One of the main reasons to visit Digha is to enjoy the freshest and the most succulent of sea-food preparations. Restaurants, street stalls and eateries cook the live fish, prawns, and crabs right in front of you the way you prefer and present it to you. And all of it comes at a very reasonable price. Cashew nut farming is practiced in Digha, so don't forget to buy ample cashew nuts & conch shells from here since you get it at relatively cheaper prices.
The Perfect Time to Step In
The best time to enjoy dipping in the seashore for endless hours is definitely during the summer. So head out during the months that follow after March and you are bound to have an impeccable vacation right here.
