Gopalpur–on–Sea, an ancient seaport, is one of the most beautiful, unspoiled beaches around this subcontinent. It is a quiet place of rare beauty. Clusters of coconut and palm along lovely and dunes over grown with Casurina separate the blue Bay of Bengal from the tiny town of Gopalpur, 16 km from Berhampur, the major city in southern #Odisha. The backwater with the creeks and lagoons covered with canopies of high green foliage, is the special attraction of the Blue Beach at Gopalpur-on-Sea. Standing mute witness to a glorious past, is the Lighthouse which still beams its powerful beacon across the sea.
