Konarka Beach

Different than Puri and Pondicherry/Paradise Beach, this beach was quite and practically deserted –even on a hot (HOT!) weekend day. The surf was high, but only 3 boys chasing waves and a few birds were around to enjoy it. There are kiosks for vendors and ample parking, so perhaps this is a hang out that picks up at dusk.

There are dunes planted with seagrass and other vegetation (something that appears to be a cousin of sea grapes), which is great for the long term preservation of the beach. This seems like a terrific beach to relax reading –a book or enjoy a picnic…(if I wasn’t playing “power tourist” the weekend I visited I would have enjoyed going back… With a vat if sunscreen if course!).
