GOPALPUR-ON-SEA

THIS QUIET seaside town was, iinn ancient times, a great seaport for Orissa’s maritime trade with Indonesia . The British later developed it as a beach resort and it now has a sleepy charm, except during the Durga Puja holidays in October, when it swarms with tourists from Bengal. Swimming in the sea is not safe because of treacherous undercurrents, But the beach, lined with bungalows and clotted with easuarina groves, is a good place to spend the day, watching the fishing boats and the sunset.
