Gopalpur Sea Beach – Ganjam, Odisha | Gopalpur Beach Tours & Travel Guide

Gopalpur is Odisha’s most popular sea beach. It is located 173Km from Bhubaneswar,Odisha. The great thing about this place is charming and alluring. One can view both sunrise and sunset at the Gopalpur Sea Beach. The sunset and sunrise reflecting the salty waters of the Odisha are some things immediately an artist’s canvas.

Gopalpur may be a town which holds a noble history as a seaport with connections to Southeast Asia , the evidence of which remains scattered throughout the town within the sort of old decapitulated buildings and heritage resorts. After independence, it slid into the tag of a sleepy, forgotten town until Bengali holidaymakers rediscovered it for its tranquil seashore. Later, after the arrival of the Mayfair Group, the place received a way needed makeover to spice up tourism within the region. And since then Mayfair Group has tried to single handedly put Gopalpur on the tourist map. Well, they need done exceedingly well from my observations.

How to Reach: Gopalpur Sea beach is only 170 kms away from Bhubaneswar and is well connected by Rail and Road. NH5 is at it’s best and barely takes 2 and 1/2 hours to be there. And this place is 16 kms away from Berhampur city. The nearest railway station is also Berhampur and has good connectivity from the state capital as well as from Vizag (Andhra Pradesh).

Where to Stay: Gopalpur Sea beach offers a variety of places to stay. OTDC PanthaNiwas is something I will suggest to contribute to the governments efforts. It has 4 independent cottages and AC and Non-AC rooms with dining facility. Mayfair and Swosti are there for Luxury. All these are on the beach and have brilliant views.

What not to miss: The sea at Gopalpur is quite violent in compared to other beaches in Odisha and watching the Sun-Rise is a pleasant experience along with an early morning stroll.


What to Eat: If you are a foodie, then berhampur is the place you should go to have a different culinary experience. 15-16 kilometers is hardly a distance to have some good food. I personally had been to ‘Girija Restaurant’ and not to mention the butter chicken they make is an absolute delight to have with Stuffed Bread. And so is their Chicken Pakora. Though this place lacks a bit on cleanliness but the taste is guaranteed. Berhampur city also has many famous South-Indian food joints to offer a great breakfast experience.
