Candy sands, disappearing waves, transformed trolls – if life’s a beach, these are its strangest days. These 10 beaches from Lonely Planet’s 1000 Ultimate Sights might not all be swimmable, but they are all extraordinary.
The sea here has a magic trick – it disappears! At low tide it waves goodbye and heads out for some 5km (yes, that’s unusually far; when you see it happen you’ll know how freaky it is). That in itself may not be enough to draw you here, but while you’re waiting for the sea to come sloshing back in with a ‘just kidding!’ you’ll be able to explore the seabed, complete with shells, driftwood and little red crabs. And when you’re in Orissa, why not check out some of its other off-the-tourist-trail beaches?
