GOPALPUR SEA BEACH IN ORISSA

Gopalpur on Sea in Orissa, is a beach resort in and as one of the famous tourist destination. Tourists like me really enjoy the roar of the waves and the breeze bustling through the palm trees. With an increase in the inflow of tourists from the late seventies, Gopalpur-on-sea saw a slow revival and is today one of the foremost beach resorts inIndia. One can sit on the concrete finished staircase, like the beach benches, or can take a quite nap in front of the breezing sea.
