Walking by the beach is something that you would have surely tried, but have you ever walked INTO a beach. Ok I haven’t gone mad. The Chandipur beach is located in Orissa near the Balasore village which is approximately 200 kilometers from Bhubaneswar the capital city. This is one of the most lesser known beaches in India and in reality it provides this unique opportunity where you can actually walk into the beach. This is because the sea water moves back some 5 kilometers away from the shore line. This happens during the ebb tide which is the time period between the high tide and the low tide. Isn’t this strange and mysterious? Well it surely is something so unbelievable. The mystery doesn’t end there, as once the water recedes it stays behind until the high tide comes. The water then literally ‘returns’ the back to the shoreline.
While the water moves back, you would see many people walking into the beach, many are scared too as they have lurking fear that the high tide might hit the shore any time and take them away too. An amazing and common site to see the locals riding their bikes into beach during this time. Well the locals are quite familiar with the timings of the tide, guess this is the reason they can freely attempt to ride their bikes at the beach.
