Chandipur is a beach in Odisha’s Balasore district. The beach is around 16 kilometers from the Balasore Railway Station and is located on the Bay of Bengal’s shore. The beach is remarkable in that during the ebb tide, the sea recedes up to 5 kilometers. The beach encourages biodiversity because of its unique setting. Horseshoe crab can also be seen on the beach near Mirzapur, a nearby fishing market and village at the Budhabalanga River’s confluence (Balaramgadi). It’s a great area for a picnic. Here is one of Odisha Tourism’s Panthanivas (guest houses).
