The Vanishing Sea ( Chandipur Beach Orissa)

Hotspotsindia

All of you must be astonished to hear this “ The Vanishing Sea” but yes it is true the sea suddenly vanishes right from the front of your eyes and to observe it returning is a very rare site. It takes time and patience to watch the sea returning back.The hide and seek of water is also mesmerised with Casuarina trees and creeper sand dunes seem to be swaying on a melodious musical note. The beach is also in close proximity to certain other places of tourist interest namely Remuna, Panchalingeswar, Aradi and Chandaneswar.

The Chandipur beach is one of the few beaches in the world which recedes back upto 5km daily with low tide and its really adventurous chasing the waves in a jeep when the sea retreats back.

Some pictures of this mesmerising sea are hereby –
