If you reach it early in the morning you can observe trollers and fishermen trading in fish. Buy coconut water, vodka, and other drinks and seafood at shacks and bars on the beach. Swimming in the water is not recommended for children. Make Shankarpur Beach part of your personalized Digha itinerary using our Digha travel itinerary maker.
