Puri Beach, on the shores of the Bay of Bengal is just 2 km away from the Puri Railway Station. The Puri Beach is a popular tourist attraction in the city and is considered to be one of the best beaches in India that is ideal for swimming.

Hindus also consider the beach to be sacred. The annual Puri Beach Festival displays sand art which draws plenty of tourists. International award winning local sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik’s work offers a visual treat and is a must watch if you are in Puri during the festival.

The rich golden sand on the long beach along the bay, the soothing breeze, the clear twinkling water and the breathtaking view of the sunrise as well as the sunset have made the beach a permanent attraction.
