Really amazed with a tour

Paradeep is just 125 km by road from Bhubaneswar. On the confluence of the river Mahanadi and the Bay of Bengal, Paradeep is a beautiful city with a very nice beach. The beach is famous for its clear blue water, green forest, stones along side the beach, a good marine drive and the biggest port. Visitor can spend some hours by frolicking in the lovely indigo water. The scenic location of the beach gives an ideal destination for tour.

Apart from the beach, the other tourist attractions are Bhitarkanika National Park, Port, jhankad an old Sarala temple, Baladeva Temple.
