At a distance of 2 km from Shankarpur Beach, 4 km from Tajpur, and 18 km from Digha Railway Station, Chandpur Beach is another beautiful beach located near Digha, West Bengal. Situated between Shankarpur Beach and Tajpur Beach, it is one of the lesser-known beaches near Kolkata and among the secluded places to visit as part of Digha Packages.

Flanked on the coast of the Bay of Bengal, Chandpur Beach is the newest beach destination as well as the cleanest stretch of beach anywhere near Kolkata. Boasting a beautiful seaside view and clear emerald water, the beach is considered ideal to relax and unwind. The beach, however, is different than the other beaches in the region as its seashore is slightly eroded and there is a recession caused by seawater.

If you want to enjoy the sunrise view over a vast panoramic sea without any obstruction, Chandpur is the perfect place for you. The clear water along with the beach of Chandpur reveals its truest color during the full moon nights when the sea seems to turn into silver and the beach golden. The beach is almost inaccessible during high tide. However low tides reveal a large part of the beach, where you can try to get yourself wet.
