Situated on the shores of Bay of Bengal, Puri is the city of Joy. Puri is some 60km away from Bhubaneshwar, the capital of Orissa. Puri Beach is one of the wonderful destinations for holidaying where sun kissed beaches wet your feet and gentle wind simply elevates you from the earthy odor to the clouds. This beach will make you feel as if you are in a perfect dreamy world! Also I have some nostalgia from this place because this beach was my first ever visit to a sea beach when I was in 6th std.! So here is my experience of the”Walk on the Fine Sands of Puri.”
Sea beach at Puri has it’s own golden sandy look and beauties of nature. Like other Sea Beach of the world Puri Sea beach attracts lot of foreign visitors to spend some hours.
The beach is very wide and exposed. Like the other sea beaches of India, you don’t have to worry about the high tides and heavy currents, you can enjoy your sea bath while admiring the mesmerizing beauty of golden sand and beauties of nature.
Fine white sand and crystal clear water, Puri Beach is quite renowned for its calm and serene surroundings. The beach is also renowned for the sand sculptures made by internationally known sand artist Sudarshan Patnaik. The sculptures are usually inspired by the art covering the temple walls or other mythological character or episode. I remember, it was Christmas eve and at that time a huge castle of sand and a Santa with lots of gifts was sculptured by Sudarshan Patnaik.
Puri sea beach is the right place to enjoy sunrise and sunset and for a peaceful walk along the beach in the evening or morning.
