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.

  • Puri beach was hit by a cyclone in May 2019. A clean beach for India permanently cleaned. Lots of people and no shadow. Camels from the vendors and, to the north, a Rabi seafood hut that prepares prawns for 200 rupees and even brings you a beer. Not a dream beach but the sea is beautiful, dangerous and I think not very clean. a stinking river flows further into the ocean. In short it's India!
