Talking about West Bengal's most popular sea resort, Digha was known as Beerkul during the times of Warren Hastings. This place was discovered in the 18th Century by the British. Later a poet named John Frank Smith loved this place and settled here in 1923. His writings have prominent mention of this beach in a number of places and he was the one who later requested former Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Ray to declare this as a sea resort. The natural beauty of this place is picturesque. The shores are lined with casuarina trees which also help in preventing erosion of the sand dunes here. This is a shallow beach with soft waves and thus it is a perfect beach for swimming. There are also a number of tourist resorts around for you to stay. The sunrise and sunset are both beautiful from here.
