Digha revisited

Had a chance to revisit Digha last week. I really do like that place. Nearest beach to our home. My last visit was on August 2013. If you follow my last visit you will get some details on the place.

I usually take bus from my place to Digha as we have direct bus connection and it takes around 5 hours. This time we did it differently, took a train. Howrah-Digha Superfast AC Express is a nice train to travel with. The AC Chair car has a huge legroom and descently comfortable seats. Foods are not so good, not so bad either (when compared to the IRCTC restaurant services). It is around 3 hours on the train.

Last time I visited this place was nowhere near like this. Everything changed. New Parks created and lots of benches installed so you can spend lots of time enjoying the sea view. Cows are unavoidable though!

This is the center of the Biswa Bangla (বিশ্ব বাংলা) Park. The globe with big B inside looks good!

The cranes welcomes you to the Park. They illuminates after evening.

You can buy some good looking handicrafts items from Old Digha markets attached to the beach.

A breathtaking view from the hotel. You cannot simply get down and start swimming at this place. There’s separate public beach built for that.

And this is that public beach. Here you can enjoy a nice seabath.

Enjoy your stay.

Beautiful Beaches of West Bengal, India

We don’t have any beach here at Kolkata. One popular beach in West Bengal is at Digha, that is almost some 4 hours driving from Kolkata. We have many other beaches here in West Bengal. Only one other I can remember now is at Bakkhali, that is at South 24 Parganas district.

Digha, is situated at the district of East Midnapur which is having many more beautiful beaches in addition to Digha. Whenever we visit Digha, we make sure to have a round-trip to those beaches as well. They are very near to it.

Old Digha and New Digha, that is the two major parts of the area. If you love crowds, lights, markets, peoples, foods you must stay at Old Digha. If you love to be in silence, peace, pure nature and large beach, you must stay at New Digha.

One hour drive from Digha, there is another beach which is equally famous in this area. Guessed it right! Mandarmani.

It is new beach so the markets are still growing there. You will find everything from Hotel fare to restaurants foods a bit expensive there. But the view you will get at the beach is priceless!
