Chandipur Beach Overview

Ranked 2 of 12 sightseeing in Balasore
Chandipur Beach is a popular tourist destination situated in the coastal village of Chandipur. Also known as Chandipur-on-sea, during low tide, it is a spectacular sight to see swarms of red crabs sticking their heads out of the sand. Visitors can also enjoy the view of the vast expanse of Bay of Bengal with its small fishing boats and motor launches.
A small fishing village community is found adjacent to the beach which is lined with casuarina trees and from where one can hire a boat and venture into the Bay of Bengal. For the more romantic, take a cruise at the confluence of the Budhabalanga River on a moonlit night.
Other than being a tourist spot there are quite a few temples like Panchalingeshwara temple and Bhudara Chandi ShrineTemple situated not very far from the beach.
An elaborate beach festival, showcasing the dance forms, art and culture of the state, has become an annual affair here and takes place every February.
Chandipur Beach is easily approachable by road.

Its having less salt percent

Mostly polluted beach with local pollution and missing of most unique place of Balasore. This place is not to take bath or have fun on waves but very useful for beach activities as its having less salt percent with hard packed beach.

Not worth!

We were a group there during 26-Jan-2016. The sea appeared only for sometime in early morning. Evening was dark so we avoided. The water of the sea has yellow oil in it. As a sea beach it is not worth to visit.

Sea beach with vast expanse of hard sea bed

Recently visited this beach in first week of Oct 2015 also have been there in the same month of year 2014. Chandipur Beach is located around 14 km from Balasore Railway Station. There are number of private cabs available for hire. The place is little high on temperature so it is advisable to visit either early Morning or late Evening. Being in Bay of Bengal, one has to visit the beach early in the morning to witness the sunrise. the speciality of the beach is that based on tide cycles, the sea water recedes to 3-4 km and one can walk on the hard sea bed expanded to 4 km. one of the rare opportunity to see vast expanse of land before water. There are plenty of shacks selling seafood along the beach. One has to check the tide cycle with locals before heading to the beach. Panthnivas, a Govt of Orissa run hotel is situated just along the beach, some other private property are also available for stay. Be careful to stroll through as the other end of the beach is under Defence control. Good outing for 2-3 hours in the morning or late Afternoon.

Great place for relaxation

Its a very quiet beach away from the city of Balasore. One can only hear the music of waves, no noises or crowd. The waves are strong enough to thrill you. Lots of sea shells, one can collect here, lots of good resorts near the beach to have fun. Great food available, don't forget to have taste of 'fish dishes' here. I loved spending time here.
