Extending from Banki muhan, near Puri to Keluni muhn nar Dalkuni, this is perhaps the only protected area with about 100 blackbucks. The coastal flora and fauna, lush green vegetation and undistributed sandy beaches make this a popular Eco-tourism spot. The sand split is a favorable nesting place for Ridely sea turtles. The land is also the source of more than 30 springs, which are renowned for their myriad wildlife-they are home to more than 300 species of rare plants and animals. Accommodation at Saikat Nivas, near the marine drive road gives a distinct wadding of the forest.
