Gopalpur beach is a half an hour away from the Brahmapur station in Odisha. What makes it different from other beaches is that the beach is clean, the ambience is calm and it is not so crowded. There are nice hotels by the beach including Swosti Palm and Mayfair. The beach road lines up with small shops selling street food and snacks in the evening, and people flock to them to enjoy some cool breeze along with the food. It is also near Rushikulya and Rambha where you can see the Olive Ridley turtles nesting during January.
