Rank2 out of 3 attractions in Konarak
One of the best beaches along the eastern coast, this is the perfect place if you are seeking peace and some quality time amidst the beauty of nature. The golden sands of the beach are a sight to behold and according to history this place has witnessed the rise and fall of the Konark Temple along the years and also witnessed it being rebuilt. The Chandrabhaga Mela is a week long fair on this beach where many cultural activities are organjsed and the celebration is worth being a part of.

Reviews of Chandrabhaga Beach • 4
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.
Quiet place, clean water and beautiful weather.
The sea here is untamed at its best, compared to the quiet, docile waters in Puri. And then walk the balance 3 odd kilometres through cashew plantations on one side and a wildlife sanctuary on the other. There is even a sign somewhere which asks you to drive slowly and lookout for crossing animals.
With a clear view of the beautiful Sunrise at the east coast of India, this is one of the most amazing beaches of the country.
