Chandipur Beach, Odisha

The specialty of this beach is the ebb tides that recede around 1 to 4 km during low tides, creating a rhythmic disappearing act. This provides a spectacular view of the rising sun and the sun sinking beyond the waters, which is truly a feast for the eyes. When the water disappears, you can even take a jeep ride towards the sea.
