about chandrabhaga sea beach

Close to the famous Sun Temple of Konark, Chandrabhaga Beach is a lovely and quiet place, deriving its name from the 'Chandrabhaga sea'. Rated as one of the finest beaches, it has a long stretch of clean sand and cool blue sea, creating rapids in the rolling waves. Adorned with lovely serenity, watching the golden sun rising above the blue waters over a clear sky is truly a once in a life time experience. Earlier the river Chandrabhaga joined the sea here, but now only the confluence remains to be seen.

According to a legend, the daughter of a sage, Chandrabhaga killed herself by drowning in the river to protect her chastity from Surya, the Sun God. Lord Surya blessed the river with medicinal properties, in repentance, and named it as ‘Chandrabhaga’. Hence it is believed that a dip in River Chandrabhaga can cure leprosy. Pilgrims in large number take holy dip in this confluence on the Magha Saptami day, which falls in February-March every year. Apart from this, the beach also has a functioning light house, rendering it an old world charm.

I often visit to the chandrabhaga beach. it is one of my favorite place. the beach is really very quite and beautiful . the tides here is very high. don't go for bathing in this beach as it may be very dangerous.
