Digha is said to be one of the most favourite sea beach destinations of West Bengal. Located in the southern part and 187 km from Kolkata it is described as the ‘Brighton of the East’. Discovered by the British in the late 18th century, Digha was originally known as BEERKUL. A perfect weekend destination, Digha is actually famous for its golden sea beach where you can enjoy the scenic beauty of both sunset and sunrise. A blend of solitude and charm, the picturesque sea beach is encircled with casuarina trees all along the coast. You can enjoy the gentle waves that fondle your feet while you savour sea food delicacies like variety of fried fishes, crabs and cashew nuts.
