Puri sea beach is the right place to spend and enjoy morning and evening, which shows you an amazing color-play of light in the sky during sunrises and sunsets. The waves of the deep blue sea, is virtually stunning, as the revelers soak on the golden sand. According to Hindu belief, there are five great holy spots(Pancha Tirthas) at Puri out of which sea is the greatest and holiest for tourists and travelers. The beach is very wide and exposed and there's not a scrap of shade to be found. You can also enjoy water sports on the beach.
