One of the famous destinations of West Bengal is Digha sea beach. If some Bengali family organised some short there first preference is Digha. This is the beautiful sea beach of West Bengal. Even I had also visited that place almost 4 time and today I talk about my first experience of Digha.
After our Murshidabad tour in puja, 2017 we suddenly planed for Digha.
28th October in the morning we started our journey by Tramolipto train and we reached Digha at 10 am. We booked our hotel in Old Digha. For a long time ago in 2004 I went Digha and after 13 years later we had been visit Digha. Sometime ago I saw some pics of Old Digha but after reaching Old Digha, I saw that the place is totally change and its looks like so beautiful.
“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
– Rabindranath Tagore
The sea beach of Old Digha is front of our hotel, so after reached our hotel we had completed our lunch and then went some places for sight scenes. At first we visited some place of orisha board.
Our first destination was Digha Marine aquarium.
The Marine Aquarium is a must visit place in Digha. This is the largest aquarium and marine research center in India. The main attraction is a skeleton of a whale. A house full of different types of marine fishes, crabs, snakes, snails shrimps. There are different types of coral you can watch. Tuesday is close and no entry fee. A comprehensive view of the sea fishes and animals..
Covering some distance after crossing orisha board we saw that beach. This is very clean and clam beach of Digha. It is look like a beautiful wallpaper of sea beach. We spent some quality time in that place. Near this beach some hotels and guest houses are there, so if someone is willing to stay in that place.
This is one of the famous Shiv temples in Old Digha. This temple is very old. This was built like Kalinga time. Many people came to visit this temple to fulfil their wishes. This temple is 5 km away from orisha.
This is also a very nice beach. This beach is located just at the Bengal and Orissa border. Bike rent is available in that place. The sunset is very romantic at the beach. People drink coconut waters, as the coconuts or dubs are very fresh over there. There are so many hotels available in this place. One can set there and eat fish fry, crabs, prawn, pomfret fish. These types of food stalls are available in that place. This place is also a nice place.
Apart from these, there is also a marine aquarium where one can see different type of sea fishes in that place.
