Gopalpur Sea Beach, Behrampur.

When we think of beaches in Odisha, our minds takes us automatically to Puri, the beach town that hosts the famous Puri Jagannath Temple. Odisha however boats of a large coastline, and hence although the popular, Puri definitely is not the only beach town in the state.

Situated 73 kms away from Bhubaneswar, Gopalpur is one such place which for a very long time remained shrouded in mystery, serving only the fishermen community. However, quite recently it burst into the tourism scene of the State, and from then has been on the bucket list of every beach bum.
