Smell the sea, and feel the sky, let your soul and spirits fly. – Van Morrison
I chose to visit a beach on quite an off-season but my love for the sea got me to this beautiful beach in the town of Gopalpur, located at about 16kms from Berhampur in the southern part of Odisha. This beach is also known as sailor’s paradise beach. Gopalpur was once a thriving commercial seaport and is famous for its pristine beach. Gopalpur-on-sea is small, safe and less exposed compared to other beaches in Odisha yet it is a wonderful retreat for beach lovers.
