The winter is getting bigger, better and chiller, with ECO RETREAT fest echoing everywhere. Visitors have been pouring their experiences on social media. Their words of appreciation for the fest & pictures with the loved ones, on the white sands of Chandrabhaga are sending across invites to many.Chandrabhaga is a perfect getaway. The sun rises with promises and sets with a lot of contentment. The whole idea of Eco retreat was to gift the visitors a lifetime experience, and this couldn’t have been possible without a place like Chandrabhaga running parallel to marine drive in Odisha.
But now it was whole different level feeling listening to the sound of waves and enjoying when water touched our feet and thinking how deep and how far is the limit of this sea, The Bay of Bengal.
Not far from Konark, 8km to be exact, towards the Puri direction, lies the Chandrabhaga beach.
The day came to an end with a short stop to Chandrabhaga beach which is very near to the Konark Sun Temple. It was a day which was albeit hectic but a memorable one.
The beaches in Odisha are unlike others in India. Chandrabhaga Beach is at a distance of 37km from Puri and just 3km from Konark Temple. Pilgrims from the nearby towns and cities flock this beach on the seventh day of Magha (according to the Hindu calendar) to offer their prayers to the sun god. This beach with a lighthouse is one of the most serene spots on the East Coast, especially recommended for photography enthusiasts.
