Only 32-km from Puri on Marine Drive,
one could find a sprawling beach at Konark rated as one of the finest in
the world. With a long stretch of cleans sands - cool blue sea making
rapids in rolling waves - the beach claims to be one of the best in the
eastern coast for having a lovely serenity of its own.
At a strolling distance one finds the famous architectural splendour of the Sun Temple - Konark, a world heritage monument. The Sun Temple Museum of the Archeological Survey of India has a good collection of sculptures from the temple ruins.
About 8-km along the beach is the famous Ramchandi Temple on the confluence of the river Khushabhadra and the sea.
