The vast endless stretch of clear blue water,stunningly silent at times and rising and falling with loud roars the next moment,the setting sun filling the evening sky with a lovely crimson colour,the golden sands along the sea watching the playful children and relaxing couples...the beauty of the sea beaches of Odisha is simply awesome.With over 480 km long coastline,the State is home to some of most pristine and exotic sea beaches of the world,which have an enticing appeal. Chandipur,16 km from Balasore has one such splendid sea-beach but with a unique distinction.
