Digha Tourism & Travel Guide

Digha is the most famous seaside resort town in the state of West Bengal. Situated only 187 kilometres away from the capital of the state, Kolkata, it is well equipped with hotels and various other tourist facilities. The sunrise and sunset reflecting off the misty blue water of the Bay of Bengal offer the most picturesque view. Digha was originally known as Beerkul and it started gaining fame when in 1923, an English tourist by the name of John Frank Smith got so greatly allured by its charm and magnificence that he started living there and writing about Digha. Being a seaside resort town, Digha naturally offers a number of stunning beaches such as Digha beach, Udaipur sea beach, Junput beach and Shankarpur beach. Chilling at these beaches, swimming in the water, or simply lying down admiring the view is a blissful experience. Besides its beaches, Digha also offers other places of interest, the most popular being Digha Gate, Marine Aquarium and Research Centre (MARC) and Lord Shiva Temple at Chandaneswar. With its extremely picturesque beaches and enticing charm, Digha never fails to impress its visitors.

Weekend Getaways from Digha  

Kolkata, or Calcutta (also Cal), is a kaleidoscopic melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. There's quite possibly no Indian festival that the city doesn't celebrate with glorious hoopla. Each month sees small festive marquees popping up at every corner of the street and come October, throngs of women enwrapped in silk sarees and red bindis convene around the city, undeterred by the ever-present rains. This celebration alone is reason enough to travel to Kolkata. From the glut of vibrant attractions, the city also holds a rich vehicular heritage ranging from the big yellow taxi that floods both parts of the city (Calcutta and Howrah) divided by the reticent river Hoogly, to the hand-pulled rickshaws and rickety trams meandering the roads. Tourists will hardly ever run out of things to do in Kolkata. Starting from Kumartuli, a traditional potters’ quarter, famed for its sculpted idols of gods and demons, to the architectural spectacle, that is the Howrah Bridge, Kolkata city will engulf you with its sights, sounds and scents. Calcutta’s biggest, most prismatic wholesale flower market on Mullick Ghat, Victoria Memorial, the old Chinatown Tiretta Bazaar, the magnificent Nakhoda Masjid and Jorasankho (Rabindranath Tagore’s ancestral home) are few of the most picturesque places to visit in Kolkata.
