DighaDigha, West Bengal's most popular seaside resort town is just 183 km away from the capital Kolkata. It lies in East Midnapore district and at the northern end of the Bay of Bengal. Renowned for its beaches, Digha is visited by thousands of tourists every year. With season time round the year, It is mostly famous as a weekend destination for Kolkatans. Located at 21°41′N 87°33′E / 21.68°N 87.55°E / 21.68; 87.55 and with an average elevation of 6 metres (22 feet), Digha is enriched with casuarinas plantations along the coast enhancing the beauty of this place. These trees apart from beautifying the sands also aid in reducing the erosion on the dunes as the place sufferred a lot of erosion during the years. Digha's old beach isn't as wide as it used to be due to heavy soil erosion. Big stones and concrete steps are used to hold together the beach. Another problem is the record number of tidal waves during rough seasons that have caused many of the unplanned shacks and smaller hotels to succumb to the sea. The place has a low gradient with a shallow sand beach with gentle waves extends 7 kms in length.

Both the sunrise and sunset at Digha sea beach are charming. The sunsets and sunrises reflecting off the salty waters of the Bay of Bengal are something straight off an artist's easel. The sea at Digha is calm and shallow for about a mile from the beach making it quite safe for swimming.

Digha Originally was known as Beerkul and during Warren Hastings time was discovered in the late 18th century by the British. It is mentioned as the "Brighton of the East" in one of Warren Hasting's letters (1780 AD) to his wife. An English tourist John Frank Smith started living here in 1923 and his writings provided a good exposure to this place. He convinced West Bengal Chief Minister Bidhan Chandra Roy to develop this place to be a beach resort.

Digha is well connected to Kolkata/Howrah by a highway and a rail-link via Tamluk. Regular Buses are available from Esplanade and Howrah Station and trains ply from Howrah/Shalimar for 3 times daily.
