Chandipur is one of the many beautifully gifted beaches of Odisha. The place is full of Casuarinas and sand dunes. A very unique feature of this beach is that the sea water recedes away from the shore line about 5 kilometers twice a day. The water vanishes and then comes forth rhythmically. It appears as if the sea plays hide and seek.

The waves here are calm. They do not come dashing and hit the shore, rather proceed and recede in a rhythm. Hordes of people gather to this beach to experience this unique phenomenon of nature.

When the water recedes, the beach appears wider. You can enjoy a jeep ride. Also, the sea creatures lay on the exposed beach which appears beautiful. Red crabs and sea shells are most common. It is safer and more pleasurable to take a dip in the waters.
