Overcrowded & dirty
Mar 2020
Over crowded & one of the dirtiest beach. Not recommended unless you are on a tight budget. With little extra budget you can visit lots of other beautiful beaches.

I been there with my friends and we enjoyed there every single moment. We had Papadi chaat and fish fry, unbelievably amazing taste. You will get there fresh bbq seafood. Try to go there with your family and friends because you will have chance to do boat ride, horse riding, parachute flying etc.

Weekend Trip to DIgha and nearby
Dec 2019
Recently I planned to go Digha with my family on 22nd and 23rd Dec 2019. Digha is very famous for its sea beach and very famous within all the Bengalis. It is undoubtedly a one-stop destination for families looking forward to spending pleasurable holidays or at least a weekend together. Generally, Digha trip is not a very long one, its lasts as long as only a weekend.
Digha is very well connected from Kolkata, we have all the options available such as Train, Bus and by own car. The roads are excellent and one can easily reach Digha from Kolkata in 4 hr of driving.
Road Route: From Kolkata via Vidyasagar Setu and Kona Expressway take the NH-16 (old NH-6) till Kolaghat -> take a left turn on NH-116 (old NH-41) excellent roads till Nandkumar -> right turn on state highway all the way to Digha, via towns of Contai and Ramnagar.
Since we were 7 people so I have to opts for Train instead of my Car for this trip. I booked ticket on Tamralipta Express (12857) which starts from Howrah station at 6:35 AM. Our was waitlist 234 (2S) but it got confirmed. Generally extra coach is added in this train during peak periods. We reach Digha by 10 AM, Digha station was very neat and clean. Once you get out of the railway station you will find rickshaws and totos. Digha has many hotels of all budgets. I booked Hotel Roopkatha which was in New Digha. Rooms were very decent and beach was hardly 400 meters from the hotel.
After check in into the hotel we got fresh and had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Then we went to the beach walking and enjoyed the sea beach. In the evening we decided to go Old Digha which was 2 KMs from our Hotel. We took motor rickshaw from New Digha . It took 10 minutes for us to reach Old Digha. The rickshaw charged Rs.10 per head. Old Digha is more crowded compare to new Digha. It has market place just beside the beach. The beach in Old Digha is beautifully constructed and decorated. People can sit on the stone seats beside the sea beach. This beach is not suitable for taking a dip in the sea. You can enjoy Jhalmuri and evening tea watching sun set on the beach.
In Old Digha market you will see lots of Cashew nuts shops. Since nearby Digha has lots of cashew nut farm so cashew nuts are very cheap here than other places. The other things found in the markets are ornaments and stuffs made of sea shells, hand woven mats, shankha etc. We took our dinner at old Digha and returned back to our hotel by 10 PM.
The next day early in the morning around 6 AM we went to new Digha beach for fascinating sunrise. It was a refreshing way to start a day. Later on we book a car for Rs.200 (to and fro journey) and went to Chandaneswar Temple for puja. Chandaneswar Temple is situated just 5 km away from Digha in Balasore district in the state of Orissa. This is Load Shiva temple which is not very well maintained. Temple has lots of cow and monkeys roaming all around. Better not to engage any priest/panda here. Just avoid them by keeping distance from them and pray of your own in the temple.
After returning back we had breakfast and went to Old Digha. From the Old Digha taxi stand we booked a SUV for visiting Mandarmani, Shankarpur and Tajpur beach for Rs.1500.
Mandarmani is 40 KMs from Old Digha. Mondarmoni is peaceful sea beach and very enjoyable refreshing beach with long sand bed. You will find plenty of hotels here for spending holidays. The hotels here are bit expensive compare to Digha.
Then we went to Tajpur beach which is situated between Mandarmani and Digha. Tajpur is 25 KMs from the Digha and 15 Kms from Mandarmani. You will get to see the red crabs playing hide and seek in the sand in this beach. Tajpur also has lots of tower wooden houses made in the sea shore which gives a very good view of sea.
Next we went to Shankarpur Beach which was 7 KMs from Tajpur beach. This beach is very less crowded and perfect destination. This beach has very good newly built park providing perfect view of sea. There is a beautiful watch tower and props of sharks and dolphins in the beach. The view of sea is awesome in the beach.
After Shankarpur we returned back to our hotel and had a lunch by 4 PM (very late). Then we completed our packing and checkout our hotel and went to catch return train, Kandhari Express (22898) at 6:20 from Digha station. The train was late by 40 minutes from Digha and got further delay by 2 hours to reach Howrah station by 11 PM.

Crowded beach
Nov 2019
Most part of the beach is covered with boulders. The beach is mostly too crowded. However, it's a wonderful experience to sit with a cup of tea and aloo chop at the shore and enjoy the evening breeze.

Black Rocks Beach
Oct 2019
Digha is a small town. Roadside restaurants and dhaba are numerous. Traditional dhabas are inexpensive. Town's activities revolve around the beach visited by a flock of domestic travellers.
The beach isn't as good as we visualized as it sans sand! The shore has a slanty bed of black rocks and you miss the sand there!
