5. Mandarmani Beach

Mandarmani Beach is a resort village located in West Bengal. It’s at the northern end of the Bay of Bengal. The red crabs that dot the beach are a main attraction for tourists. The resort area offers no electricity; therefore, after dark, there are no lights, and it is quiet and peaceful.

6. Puri Beach

Puri Beach is located within the city of Puri in Odisha, India. The area is a major tourist attraction and a sacred place for Hindus. Each year, the beach is home to a popular beach festival that includes sand art displays by local and international artists.

Aside from the picturesque beaches, travelers should soak in the culture, try as many different foods as possible, and visit all of the local cultural and historical spots, especially the forts and palaces

that dot the areas above.
