Beaches in Orissa

Puri Beach 
Puri BeachPuri is not only one of India's holiest pilgrimage centres, it is also gifted with a fabulous coastline and lovely beaches. The beaches here are ideal for beach sports but swimming is not recommended unless in the company of a life guard, who wears yellow conical caps. There are many beach resorts here which range from the modest to the luxurious. The rough seas don't even allow many water sports.


Gopalpur-on-Sea
Another popular beach resort is Gopalpur-on-Sea, 170 km from Bhubaneshwar, and 15 km from Berhampur. This is a perfect beach, fairly isolated and undisturbed by day-trippers. This place is good for both sailing and surfing.

On the Bay of Bengal lies this favourite spot for sea lovers. Warm and gentle sunshine greets you and the golden beach is an ideal place to swim or laze around. Once an ancient seaport, today Gopalpur-on-sea is a probably one of Orissa's most popular and modern beach resort fringed by sand dunes attracting tourists from all over the world. Nearby are the ruins of an old jetty from where sailors set out to Indonesia in medieval times.
