A small sea resort just 255 km away from Kolkata, the tiny town named Chandipur in Orissa makes our list of honeymoon-worthy places because of its serenity. Chandipur is known for its ‘receeding beach’ – during low tide, the water disappears so far back that you can even take a jeep ride towards the sea. Besides the beach, there are a number of outdoor activities like bird-watching and swimming that will keep you and bae active through the day.
You can also spend a day with nature at the Similipal Forest Reserve where, if you’re lucky, you can spot deer, crocodiles and even leopards. Trek up to Nilagiri and enjoy not just the adrenaline-inducing climb up but also the breathtaking views.
