Who doesn’t need a break from their hectic schedule and monotony of life? And when we think of a break, we mean a long week of relaxation on a beach or a hill top. But often all we get is a weekend to rejuvenate ourselves. A short trip to the nearest beach (and by a beach, i mean the popular Digha) is the only solution for the people of Kolkata.

Aren’t you bored of going to the same beach every time and spending your weekend in a monotonous way? Let me present to you the very charming Bakkhali beach of West Bengal. Not only it is far more tranquil than Digha, but also less crowded and polluted. Here are a few reasons for you to ditch Digha this weekend and opt for Bakkhali.

1. Over-crowded

I think the idea of going on a holiday is to escape the busy and noisy city life and relax on a beach. But what’s the point if the beach you are going to is crowded as well. Due to its popularity, Digha is one of most excessively crowded beaches of Bengal. Throughout the year, a good amount of people flock this place which not only makes it stuffy but also leaves no room for privacy or even a quiet time.

Bakkhali, on the other hand, is perfect for those who like to unwind in nature with friends and family or even alone.

2. Dirty beaches

I think you’ll agree that nobody likes to see a beach full of filthy rubbish littered everywhere. This is the very scene of the beach in Digha. A large number of people come here and leave behind piles of leftovers and food packets. It not only pollutes the sea and land but also looks aesthetically bad. Also, it becomes a breeding ground for flies and mosquitoes.

The Bakkhali beach is comparatively well maintained and thus cleaner. So if you are really wanting to rejuvenate your tired soul and intend to treat your eyes, ditch Digha and head to Bakkhali.

3. Quality of sand

Bakkhali has white sand beaches which makes it better for swimming, bathing or just playing around in the water. Also, the presence of white sand makes the beach feel soft and the water clearer.

The percentage of sand content in the beaches of Digha is more, which means it is more sandy and coarser in texture. To simply put it, white sand beaches are always better than brown sand because the water near the latter will be a little muddier and rough on the skin.

4. Pollution

Imagine going to a beach and hearing blaring horns everywhere. Or coughing your way to the beach because of the vehicle emitted smoke. Not a good sight I guess. That is definitely not how one wants to spend their weekend at a beach. Well, who doesn’t know that a more popular beach will also be a more polluted one? Logic, eh?

Choose Bakkhali for your next beach trip and I am sure you won’t be disappointed. Free of pollution, the tranquility, and serenity of Bakkhali will enchant you completely.
