"HOTEL SHUBHAM" as one of the leading Hotel on the unique Sea Beach at Chandipur, Balasore,Orissa and We look forward to your Visit.

Chandipur is on the east coast of lndia, on the Bay of Bengal, 15 KMs east of BALASORE, the rail head and on NH-5, the first district town of ORISSA on entering from Kolkata / West Bengal.

Chandipur came into limelight over two decades back with the launching of ICBM AGNI. Other state of the art missile systems like TRISHUL, PlNAKl, AKASH and lately of BRAHMOS, the ultimate in weapons system, are test-fired from Chandipur, Integrated Test Range (ITR), built more than 100 years back. This small sleepy village carved a niche in the military map of the world. The euphoria was justified particularly for a developing nation like India.

One may not be aware that it is the same Chandipur; Chandipore-on- Sea, the unique beach in the country and in the eastern hemisphere. Here the sea recedes more than three kilometers during ebb-tide, exposing a breathtaking view of the sea-bed covering an area of approximately 1s square kilometers. Contrary to general assumption, this vast stretch of sea-bed is not muddy: it is solid sand and motorable. And when the high tide comes slowly and caresses your feet, it is another sight and experience. Could one believe that, this phenomenon occurs twice, once during the day and the other during night, every single day of the year. This is so, as because the gradient of the Continental Shelf at Chandipure is very gradual, possibly the flattest in the country, if not in the world. This makes Chandipur, one of safest places for sea bath, even for children and the aged . It becomes still safer as there is hardly any under-current. People can move into the sea upto 3 KMs even during high tide, something unthinkable any where else.

Sea apart the casuarinas plantation in abundance on the beach adds to its scenic beauty. The secluded and clean beach offers the visitor a healthy air. Even after heavy showers, the entire area presents a clean look, as the
sand soaks all the water, leaving no mud or filth to tread upon. Chandipur, a beach without parallel, offers a combination of both beauty and technology at its best. lt is a matter of speculation as to how long this beach remains with civil administration. Why not enjoy Nature's unique spectacle and beauty at its best ?

The surroundings around chandipur has a variety, not normally available in other tourist places; be it the hills of Panchalingeswar, the river estuary of Balaramgadi with its fishing harbor, the temple at Remuna where Chaitanya Mahaprabhu had spent a night; Chasakhand a page out of modern history where Bagha Jatin fought a battle to remember with the British army; the Dutch cemetery at old Balasore where the daring Dutch had landed first, even before the Britishers. All those with an attraction for forests, the Similipal Tiger sanctuary is also within three hours drive. Lulung reserve forest, Devkund lake on the foothills of Meghasani range, Bhitarakanika mangrove forest with Olive Ridley turtles and crocodiles are some exciting accessible places for the discerning tourists. What more could one expect within reasonable time, money and comfort ?
