Chandipur Beach is a phenomenal beach that glorifies the beauty of the state of Orissa, 'phenomenal' being the keyword. Would you believe it if you were told that the beach is not a continuously existing feature on the map? That the sea disappears during the day? Well, as unbelievable as it sounds, it is actually true! They call it the "Hide and Seek sea", and rightly so! Watching the sea disappear and miraculously reappear as it plays with you is an unforgettable experience that will leave you in awe of the miracles of nature.
One of nature's truly wondrous works is how the sea at this beach recedes up to five kilometres during the ebb, and then comes back to fill the emptiness with the high tide. This literally gives us the opportunity to walk deep into the actual seabed. In fact, when you walk on the beach when it has receded, only your feet get submerged into the shallow water and get surrounded by moist sand; so if you take a picture from afar, it looks as if you are actually walking on water.
