The beach is also home to biodiversity and supports a wide variety of sea animals.
Well, believe us or not, the beach is not a constantly existing feature on the map. At least it doesn’t look the same every time. Is it surprised? Hence, whenever you are at the Chandipur beach. You can actually see the sea disappear in front of your eyes, and come back again and see the area of sand dunes.
So, when you are at the beach during the ebb. You can see the water receding massively from the beach and then coming back during the high tide in order to fill up the emptiness. This Hide and Seek of the sea comes to play with you twice a day. However, the locals are fully aware of the time of the high and low tides.
This is the reason why the beach is home to a host of unique species, i.e., horseshoe crab and the red crab. It’s a surreal experience to watch the sea disappear before your eyes and walked on the exposed sea bed. One can find pearls, seashells, crabs and tiny fish on the shore during the times of low tide.
This is not something that every other beach offers. The sight of Casuarina trees and sand dunes also call for a visual treat. The ultimate golden colored sea beach has gorgeous casuarina trees and the solitary sand dunes which make the ambiance over there more peaceful and soothing.
