Pentha Beach

Sreshti Verma
Spend this day either taking another boat safari or a walking tour of the Bhitarkanika mangroves or head out to the Pentha Beach, which is 10km from the sanctuary. Take a detour from Rajnagar on the Bhubaneswar-Cuttack route to reach the Pentha Beach. Pentha is part of the 35km long Gahirmatha Beach where Olive Ridley Turtles nest in large numbers. You can also visit the hatchery developed by the Forest Department for the conservation of these eggs.While exploring remote areas, make sure you travel responsibly and follow sustainable practices.
