Shankarpur, a virgin beach as yet, is a recent discovery. It is a twin beach of Digha,
around 14 km from Digha, along the Digha-Contai Road. It is now developed as a
sea resort with hotels It offers nearly all the pleasures of a private beach with casuarina plantations.
Shankarpur is mainly credited for all the advantages of Digha and decreasing the crowd of Digha.
It can boast of a wide and unspoilt beach, casuarina groves by the side of a gentle sea and a
good climate round the year. Apart from the long, tree-lined beach,
the main attraction is the Shankarpur Fishing Harbour Project.
