What is the best time to visit Digha?

Digha, a perfect weekend getaway for all those who live in West Bengal is the most enticing during winters. October to February is the best time to hit the beaches at Digha. Apart from beaches, there are aquariums and gardens to cover, for which the most comfortable time is during these months. Winter is also the time for the biggest celebration in the whole of Bengal- Durga Puja. Summers in Digha are hot and uncomfortable with temperatures rising up to 37 degrees celcius. This isn't an ideal time to visit the palce. Whereas in July the monsoon rains might wash away your plans to enjoy both beaches and amusement parks.The level of humidity is higher making it less pleasant to travel.

Digha in Winter (October - February)

This is the best time to visit Digha because the weather is pleasant with temperature ranging between 3 and 28 degrees. You can enjoy the beaches and water sports like skiing, scuba diving and lots more, shop at the local shops. Make sure you book the hotels in advance because the rush of tourists is on a high during winters. The beaches are crowded, but the serenity remains untouched. During the days, you can stay at the beaches. At nights, you can walk on the beaches and feel the winds against your face. During winters, Durga Puja is celebrated auspiciously in Bengal. Digha also participates in that celebration, and the entire city, along with the beaches look more vibrant at this time. Besides, beach parties are held during Christmas and New Year's. So, this is a great time to visit Digha. If you are planning to visit the place during this season, make sure to book your hotels in advance because many tourists prefer winters and the crowd are comparatively more.

Digha has hot and humid summers starting from March, with a temperature rising to 38 degrees. Visiting the beaches in the excessively hot weather is not pleasant as it causes a great deal of sweat and discomfort. This season does not invite many tourists and hence is a good time for budget travellers. You can avail discounts on hotels at this time. The crowd is also minimal. Therefore, avoid visiting Digha during summers and even if you do, carry ample sun protection gears.

Monsoon season sets in from July and lasts till September. It brings down the temperature and is a relief from the extreme heat. However, it is still not a good time to visit beaches because of the danger of high tides. Even taking a walk on the beach becomes uncomfortable because of unpredictable rains and high humidity. During the rains, you can take a walk around the neighbourhoods near the beaches and enjoy the city instead. But since water sports and beaches cannot be experienced during monsoon, people avoid visiting Digha during monsoon.
