It is located 183 km from Kolkata/Howrah via Mecheda and 234 km via Kharagpur, this proximity has probably helped this small hamlet to emerge as a popular weekend getaway with number of good hotels and tourist lodges. Digha is connected to Kolkata/Howrah by a highway and a rail-link via Tamluk.
Originally, there was a place called Beerkul, where Digha lies today. This name was referred in Warren Hastings's letters as Brighton of the East.
An English businessman 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

I love the golden tones to this image, and the line of people walking across the beach makes it seem more like an imagined work of art than a photograph. That sky is just simply stunning. Really nicely captured, a great moment to have snapped.
