Abstract: One of the most popular sea resorts of West Bengal, Digha, is fast becoming a victim of soil erosion. Massive coastal erosion, to the extent of 15 to 20 metres a year, has led to loss of land and property. Digha, which has nearly 400 hotels to accommodate the great rush of tourists round the year (over 16 lakh tourists every year), has almost reached a saturation point.
