Golden Beach Puri has an 8-kilometer-long sea beach. The Puri Sea Beach’s golden beach is an 870-meter stretch that runs from Gandhi Park to the back of the Mayfair Hotel. It has been redeveloped for Blue Flag certification as part of the World Bank-funded integrated coastal zone management project (ICZMP). Both ends of the Golden Beach are properly fenced, so visitors can only enter after purchasing a ticket at the entrance counter. Puri’s Golden Beach is also known as the Blue Flag Beach.
Puri’s golden beach will be awarded the prestigious ‘Blue Flag’ tag on October 11, 2020. The prestigious certification was bestowed upon the golden beach by the non-governmental and non-profit organization “Foundation for Environmental Education” (FEE), headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. A beach must meet 33 stringent environmental, educational, safety, and accessibility criteria defined by FEE to receive a Blue Flag certification.
The label is only given to beaches that not only meet the 33 criteria but also promise to maintain high standards of cleanliness and an environmentally friendly approach to their ongoing management of tourists and resources. Golden Beach Puri is regarded as one of India’s cleanest beaches. There are decorated pathways with greenery on the sides for people to walk around, better toilets for men and women, changing rooms, drinking water dispensers, lifeguards, and visitor seating arrangements. Throughout the day, soothing music is played on the beach, making you feel at ease.
The main attraction for children is a small play area. Puri Golden Beach is an excellent location for spending quality time with friends and family. Restriction on food vending on the beach will help keep this area clean. Tourists can watch the sunrise and sunset from this beach, which is a pleasant experience. Golden Beach is one of Puri’s top tourist attractions. Thousands of tourists from all over the world have visited Blue Flag Beach Puri over the years to enjoy its charming beauty.
