Sights to See

Beach
A serene environment, immense sailing opportunities and loads of fun and frolic awaits you at one of the most pristine beaches of Orissa namely Gopalpur on Sea. Despite the crumbling walls and pillars of the jetty, that are a witness to a past glory of commercial activity; the beach offers peaceful ambience conducive to introspection and conviviality.



The beach with its golden sand of the blue sea has its own sleepy charm. The beach is a very quiet and a comparatively clean place to swim and sun bathe, but take precautions because of treacherous undercurrents. Watching Gopalpur's endless empty shoreline being swarmed with fishermen with their hand-nets full of catch is interesting and enjoyable to while away time in the stunning stillness. The old lighthouse open to visitors each afternoon, but for a very short duration, offers good views.

During the days of the Kalingas, the place was known as the port of Paloura from which traders sailed as far as Java, Bali and Sumatra and piled up wealth dealing in silk and pearl. Later it was a transit point to export sugar and cheap labourers for the tea gardens of Assam in north eastern India. The crumbling walls and the pillars of an ancient jetty together with some ruined bungalows are witness to its maritime past.
