Beaches of Orissa

At the eastern part of India, in the state of Orissa, there are quite a few fascinating beaches where the waves from Bay of Bengal crash against a jagged shoreline. The shoreline has some of the most popular beaches in the whole world. While some have religious associations, others are out and out famous for tourism.



Puri Beach

Puri beach is arguably the most popular tourist destination in India. The beach is very beautiful. Big waves crash on the sandy shore and people enjoy a nice bath in the sea. The place also has a very important association with religion. The temple of Lord Jaggannath is one of the most visited temples in India. The beach is wonderful and it is perhaps the best place to ride huge waves. There are also life guards on the beach wearing yellow caps. You can always take their help when you are all at sea.



Gopalpur - on - Sea

Among the few places still undisturbed by people, Gopalpur is one of them. It is 170 km from Bhubaneshwar and about 15 km from Berhampur. Small population and lot of space make this place an ideal getaway for all those who prefer to cool their heels in soothing beaches. This is a wonderful place to enjoy surfing and sailing. The moment you step on the beach, you will feel as if there is no worry in the world.




This is one fascinating seaside town where people can plan to stay. It is only 16 km from Balasore. This beautiful beach has everything in it to make your holiday romantic and memorable. The unique thing about this beach is that the sea water recedes to about 5 km during the low tide and comes back everyday during high tide. This is an extremely impressive thing and you will no doubt love to move in deep inside the high-water mark in the time of low tide.
