1. Shankarpur, West Bengal
The beach at Shankarpur is located about 14 km from Digha which remains untouched to a large extent. The place is a very popular fishing harbour, which attracts photographers from across various places to capture the fishermen in action. Apart from catching the fishermen in action, one can also visit the large number of temples here which create an identity for the land.
2. Digha, West Bengal
Located at a distance of 185 km from Kolkata, this is one place one definitely has to be at. The place has two beaches, the Old Digha and the New Digha. The Old Digha has a rocky shoreline with large waves which tend to sweep away the small shacks setup on the shore; whereas, the New Digha is a much larger, well maintained and is not clustered amidst the congested localities like the older counterpart.
