Shankarpur, only 14 km east of Digha, along the Digha-Contai Road, an almost virgin beach as yet, is a recent discovery. It is considered to be the twin of Digha, around 10 km from it. It offers nearly all the pleasures of a private beach. This beach too is cupped with casuarina plantations. It is also a fishing harbour. Shankarpur developed as a sea resort, with hotels, tourist lodges and other facilities. Other accommodations such as Guest Houses of the Fisheries Department and lodges under Benfish and small private places for accommodation are also available.
