Rank2 out of 30 attractions in Puri
Mainly known as a pilgrim's beach, this is also the place which attracts thousands of tourists from around the world. The ones who come to pay homage to Lord Jagannatha make sure to take a dip in the waters of the Puri Beach. Talking from a traveller's point of view, the views of the sunrise and sunset are awesome here. The relaxed and calm atmosphere of the beach is soothing during a vacation and the sand art displayed especially by internationally acclaimed Sudarshan Pattanaik are a visual treat. There are also a number of shacks here selling fast food and other small items here and there. For a quieter experience you should move towards the eastern end of the beach and just sit there and watch the fishermen at work. High tides are a common trait of this beah so be careful to follow the rules guided to you.

We had spent the first day at the Puri beach laving in the sea. In the evening my mom and sister got busy with street shopping. While they were buying those traditional Sambalpuri kurtas, shell keyrings, tiny jagannath statues and Shantinikeetan purses bargaining till the last penny; my dad and I focused on the Chena Gajas, Roshogollas and Malpuas!
Amazing weather. Beautiful sea.Soulful friends. These six words basically sum up my entire trip of Puri. There was also the famous Jagannath Temple of Puri which is a holy spot for Hindus very near the beach.
Lively beach, beautiful place to watch sunset.
One place which one cannot miss visiting. I was lucky enough to get a room in the Railways Guest house and had the privilege to visit the beach at odd times, such as in the early morning. Get lost in the surreal experience of after you visit the place.
