Beaches in Odisha can truly engulf you in a holiday spirit. As you bask in the glory of a moderate sun here, the golden sand beaches leave you still asking for more. Lovingly embraced by the Eastern Ghats at the eastern coast of India, the state of Odisha is one of the most beautiful ones in India. And it is to the striking sandy beaches with white sands and various tribal communities living in the most aborigine style that Odisha owes its beauty to. With a vast coastline spread over a lush area of 500 kilometers, Odisha still houses some relatively virgin or quite unexplored beaches. Endowed with nature's bounty, meandering rivers, impressive waterfalls, forest-clad blue hills of Eastern Ghats with rich wild life, Odisha is dotted with exquisite beaches like Chandipur, Puri and Gopalpur on Sea with each having a unique feature of its own.
