Gopalpur on the Bay of Bengal. This languorous beach with coconut groves, casuarinas, and gentle dunes is deserted for miles. This exotic beach is a paradise for marine lovers. An ancient seaport, Gopalpur beach gives space to a lighthouse as a small reminder of the seagoing days located in the southern part of the state, its untouched Bhupendra shore is only used by fishermen now. Despite this fact, tourists love the amity of golden sand blended blue sea-water, and quite famous among them as a nice place to hang loosely from the regular humdrum of the city. This place is also of high national interest because of a guided missile center, a fact that many travelers do not know. This quiet beach is a splendid retreat for sea - worshippers, located about 16 km from Berhampur. Once a humming seaport, Gopalpur offers its visitors a slice of serenity in environs that are conducive to introspection and conviviality. You can still see the crumbling walls and pillars of the jetty, witness to its past glory of commercial activity.
