Hotels in Chandipur
Chandipur Beach is another world famous for its uniqueness. The Sea water recedes into the sea every day which is 3 to 4 kms away and then retreats back and hit the coast line. This phenomenon takes place almost once in 24 hours. The water stays for 4 to 5 hours and then slowly starts retreating and it retreats so slowly that one can walk along with waves and when it comes one can walk down along with the wave up to the beach. The important thing is that water is 2-3 feet deep. There are only two such unique beaches in this world (another one is situated in California).
