Say Hello to The Bay of Bengal and Detox Here at Talsari


Unwind from the daily hues in the solitude flared up all over the pristine backwater coastline of Talsari, Odisha in India, amidst the cluster of boats, shells, crab-holes, Subarnarekha and the Palm (Taal) trees.

The livid waves crashing on the long stretches of the shining beige dunes of the beach with the wind lapping on your face, complemented by the panoramic view of the palm trees pronouncing the horizon, Talsari is one quick relaxing getaway (ex-Kolkata or ex-Bhubaneswar) from the everyday blues. Unlike its sister beach-retreat Digha, this coastline along the Bay of Bengal has not been contaminated by over-tourism.  A road trip through the State Highways and through ruddy would have you landed here.


The cold waves slashing against your foot, and then you move ahead to a knee-deep water so as to feel the sea.

The backwater course plays hide-and-seek here with its water level fluctuating every so often. One need to cross a dry riverbed, to reach the brackish sea beach. However one might find the same, brimming with water and the boats come to your rescue with a meager charge of 50 rupees.

But unquestionably, that stretch of water separates you out on one of the less exploited beach Bay of Bengal has to offer. Seated on the wooden plank of the boat, one could easily feel transmitted to an entirely different world, inflowing through a hidden doorway to one serene land encircled by lines of palm and cashew trees. The noise paradigm shifts from the jangles to the rhythmic and soft sound of the waves crashing on the sands- no honking of bargains or offers of hawkers or tourists.

The best time of the day to visit is afternoon. The never ending expanse of water turns to various hues of blue as the day proceeds from twilight to evening. There is something magical in the air with the ebbing waters, has a calm ambiance unique to the place. The solitude could be relished over a miniature beach picnic seated amidst the cashew trees.

One will find only sand dunes on the beach, amidst the beige shades there are shells strewed everywhere. The estuary of the river Subarnarekha River can be seen in the distance. With the setting sun the beach turned into a dream-scape.

  3. Looks like an amazing place to chill and have a great time. Love the pictures and their description. I have been to Digha and hated it, heard Mandarmoni is divine.

    1. Same here. Digha is becoming a hard result of over-tourism.

  6. Talsari looks nice, much better than the Digha stretch. Afternoon is surely a great time to visit as the crowd is really less then. Is it safe to swim in the water there?
