The beach stretches over a large area and allows visitors to undertake long, soothing walks. The ambience is so serene that for a few moments, you completely forget the tensions of everyday life. A visit to this place is the perfect way to revitalize your energy and re-energize your spirits. Swimming at the Konark Beach is not really advisable, as the waves come with a great force sometimes, which may prove quite dangerous for you.

Located on the eastern coast of India, Konark beach holds the distinction of being one of the finest beaches of the world. It is bordered by clean white sands. Located nearby is the pond where Samba, the son of Lord Krishna, was cured of leprosy. On the festive occasion of ‘Magha Saptami Mela’, people come to the Konark beach, from various parts of the country, to take a dip in its holy waters. The beach looks marvelous, especially during the evening when it is illuminated.
