The largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest coastal lagoon in the world, Chilika Lake is a brackish water lagoon that acts as a home to a plethora of migratory species besides the native plants and animals. Waders, waterfowl, raptors, reptiles, amphibians and the rare and endangered green sea turtle, blackbuck, fishing cat, limbless skink, spoon-billed sandpiper and Irrawaddy dolphins flourish here along with microalgae, seaweeds, seagrasses, dugongs, fish and crabs. The rich fishery resources can offer you a golden opportunity of fishing. Several islands are there for exploring, such as Parikud, Phulbari, Nalbina, and Tampara. All you need is to take a boat ride along the lake while exploring the white-bellied sea eagle, greylag geese, purple herons, brahminy ducks and many other native birds.
