Puri Beach, Puri, OrissaThe crashing surf on one of India's finest beaches is a glorious sight, as is the visual of hatted fisherfolk guiding tourists through the magnificent breakers rolling in from the Bay of Bengal. It would be best not to be too adventurous since the undertow can be a bit treacherous. The spectacle of dazzling sunsets and the catamarans dipping on the pearly waters are terrific memories to take back home.
