Puri Beach, Puri

(3.7/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Puri vacation route planner, you can arrange your visit to Puri Beach and other attractions in Puri.
