There is a small sea resort in Balasore District, Odisha, India. It is approximately 16km from the Balasore railway station. The resort is on the Bay of Bengal. The beach is very unique, that the water diminishes from 1 to 4 kilometers during the ebb tide. Because of the unique circumstances, the beach supports bio-diversity.
With the seawater decreasing approximately 5 km during low tide time and advancing to the shore during high tide time every day, the Chandipur Beach at Odisha (Orissa) offers a truly unique and fascinating sight.
It is very rare watching the sea vanish right in front of your eyes and then observing its return. And to add more to this hide and seek of water, the Casuarina trees and climbers sand dunes seem to be bending on a melodious musical note. The beach is also in close closeness to certain other places of tourist interest namely Remuna, Panchalingeswar, Aradi, and Chandaneswar.
