Serene environment, immense sailing opportunities and loads of fun and frolic awaits you at one of the pristine beaches of Odisha namely Gopalpur on Sea. Located at a distance of 16 kms from Berhampur, the southern city in Odisha, this humming seaport can be a real retreat to the beach lovers. Despite the crumbling walls and pillars of the jetty, that are witness to a past glory of commercial activity; the beach offers peaceful ambience conducive for introspection and holidaying.
The beach with its golden sand of the blue sea has its own sleepy charm. Watching Gopalpur’s endless empty shoreline getting swarmed with fishermen with their hand-nets full of catch is interesting and enjoyable to while away time in the stunning stillness. Whether it is the rising Sun over the azure waters or the rhythmic breaking of waves shimmering in the bright moonlight, it is an enduring experience. The old lighthouse open to visitors each afternoon, but for a very short duration, offers good views.
The Panthanivas of the Odisha Tourism Development Corporation offer the prospects of a perfect stay outside the hustle bustle of this beach town.
