#1 of 87 in Parks in Odisha
A vibrant shoreline fusing beach life and sacred worship, Puri Beach sits on the golden Bay of Bengal, attracting Hindu pilgrims from around the world. Considered a sacred Hindu site for those coming for a purifying dip in the rejuvenating tide, the beach stretches for 2 km (1.2 mi), lined with colorful kiosks offering souvenirs, food, and refreshments. For a more secluded visit, head to the eastern side where you can swim in solitude and check out the impressive sand sculptures by internationally acclaimed artist Sudarshan Patnaik. A visit to Puri Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Puri trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Puri

With Puri such a vital place of pilgrimage for Hindus across the world, and tourists keen to witness the festivities and engage with the history of the place, the city offers a good selection of accommodations to suit its varied list of visitors. In the dense collection of streets around the temple, a few guesthouses and hotels provide good access to the main urban points of interest. Down by the coast, you'll find a variety of hotels offering sea views, with budget options usually set a little further back from the golden sands than the upmarket choices.
