Puri beach is famous for its golden sands, soothing sun-bath and the colourful sunrise and sunset. There you can bathe and laze or enjoy seeing, the local fishermen plying their catamarans and sail boats. This beautiful beach is quite long and wide extending for miles.
North-west of Gopalpur and 50 kms from Berhampur, amidst greens lies Taptapani, famous for its hot water sulphur spring. The water of the spring is channelised to a pond to facilitate bathing.
BALASORE & CHANDIPUR
16 kms east of Balasore is Chandipur one of the most pleasant beaches of the country. Here the sea, recedes five kilometres at low tide and then flows rhythmically after a regular interval every day. This play of the tide combined with bracing environs make the spot an excellent value.
