This time it’s a Travel Theme….I am sure exploring new places is always a fascination for creative Souls.
Dagara….an Unique Virgin Sea Beach
It’s a Beach on North-Eastern Odisha in the district of Balasore.It is hardly 68 kms away from Balasore town and well connected by road.On road it takes around 1.5 hours with all comforts of journey and the scenic paddy fields of Baliapal on both sides of the road from Gandhi Chak till Dagara adds pleasure to your your journey if you are true Nature lover.
The unique feature is the flat bed with a wide beach range and casuarina plantations being it’s natural vegetation here adds to the beauty.
It’s quite unique to see local youths playing cricket 🏏 on the beach being a real source of enjoyment for them without disturbing the flora & fauna and the tranquillity of the area.
Dagara has a scenic beach that draws local tourists during weekends. The beach is noted for red crabs, silvery sand, and Casuarina evergreen trees.
“It is one of the few beaches from which both Sunrise and Sunset can be viewed over the Bay of Bengal”.
Visitors come to enjoy the pleasant picnic areas, especially around the Christmas and New Year holiday season. Fishing by small boats with the local fishing flock is very popular.
Dagara Beach is relatively unknown beyond the states of Odisha and West Bengal, but the state government is taking measures to promote tourism in the area. Recently, a beach festival has been launched.
Dagara Beach Festival
The Dagara Beach Festival attracts thousands of visitors from the state of Odisha and neighbouring West Bengal. The festival is a platform for performing artists and connoisseurs of classical dance.
The tourism department has prepared a composite plan detailing the infrastructure to support visitors, such as the construction of hotels, improved road connectivity, proper lighting and other facilities on the beaches.
The nearest bus stop for service to Dagara is located in Kalipada, at a distance of 9km only. Dagara is64km from Baleshwar|Baleswar. The train connection is located in Jaleswar(58km). Another railway station, Basta , is 25 km away . The nearest airports are Bhubaneswar and Kolkata.
