Chandipur (Odia: ଚାନ୍ଦିପୁର), also known as Chandipur-on-sea (Odia: ଚାନ୍ଦିପୁର ବନ୍ଦର), is a small sea resort in Baleswar District, Odisha, India. The resort is on the Bay of Bengal and is approximately 16 kilometers from the Baleswar Railway Station. The beach is unique in that the water recedes up to 5 kilometers during the ebb tide. Due to its unique circumstances, the beach supports bio-diversity. Horseshoe crab is also found here on the beach towards Mirzapur, the nearby fishing market and community at the confluence of the Budhabalanga River(Balaramgadi). It is a suitable picnic spot. One of Odisha Tourism's Panthanivas (guest house) is situated here.
Normal Indian weather
In summer the temperature is 25-40 degrees Celsius, but in winter it's 17-26 degree Celsius. Nov-Mar is the suitable time for travelling here.
Ministry of Defence
Chandipur-on-sea is also the location of the Ministry of Defence's Integrated Test Range (ITR), at Abdul Kalam Island, formerly Wheeler Island. A number of missiles have been launched from the ITR including the nuclear-capable Akash, Shaurya, Agni and Prithvi, ballistic missiles, just recently being Barak 8. Chandipur is a unique beach because it may not be there when you visit because of high tide.
