There are two beaches at Digha: the old one and the new one, which is usually known as New Digha. Two days are enough for this place as the place doesn't have much to offer but beaches. The water is choppy and swimming doesn't really look like a good option here as the beaches seem deceptive at times. Although, it can be a good weekend getaway near the beach.
