Digha Things to Do

  • Excellent C Food!!

    I love seafood and Digha is a superb source for seafood. There are many cheap “restaurants” all over Digha, serving cheap, but excellent Bengali dishes. There are some expensive restaurants where continental food is available, serving delicious food. Digha is a great place to enjoy fish cuisine for which Bengal is famous for. Try Pomfret, Rohu,...

    Though people have made it a beach for fun, but heart and heart it remains a beach for the fisherman, who live by the sea. It is the only source of their livelihood. But since the invention of Deep sea fishing Trawlers their livelihood has become limited. The trawlers get more fish and the bigger fish, who get more value. We witnessed fishing by...

    It is difficult to pass the evening as per your choice in Digha. So what do you do in the evening? Just behave like Romans in Rome, well I mean do exactly what the locals and people from Calcutta do. Just take a stroll of the Beach, eat fresh fish fry, watch the crowd, watch the shops selling sea shells or just watch the sea. But please dont go...

    This beach has no clear blue water as the depth of the Sea is less. The real pleasure of Bathing in other Indian beaches like Goa, Kovalam, Vizag, Puri is not there. But what is available people make use of it, to the most.

  • Gourmet's Delight on way to Digha.

    While driving to Digha we had Lunch at this great place called Azad Hind Dhaba. Dhaba means eating place. In olden days Dhaba used to cater to the Truckers only and the food was Typically Punjabi style like Roti, Tadka( lentils) & Chicken. In the Last about 30 years Indian roads have developed a lot and now they are almost at Par with their Asian...

  • Digha Restaurants.

    We had all meals at hotel only. But Digha has many restaurants. While coming back we thought we shall have Biryani ( Mutton or Chicken), at Biryani house. The food is just average and not at anything near to Quality what is available at Kolkata. But this place is worth trying while in Digha, only for Indian Mughlai Food. Mutton Biryani & Chicken...

Big stones and solid steps are use to seize the beach. The beach at Old Digha is not pretty good for swimming as there are stones and rocks, so there is...

  • For travelers, who don't like...

    Since Old Digha is one of the very few popular beaches in West Bengal (India), it gets overcrowded, especially during the winter. And it's little more dirtier too. The better option would be New Digha Beach, which is around 2 km far from the old beach. This new beach is bigger and better than the old beach. It is clean and is not surrounded by a...

They came shouting, fighting , Using FILTHY Un- Parliamentary Language, threatening to burn down my...
