The Bichitrapur Mangrove is created by the confluence of Subarnarekha River and the Bay of Bengal. Located in the state border of West Bengal and Balasore district of Odisha, this mangrove forest is home to Red Ghost Crabs, Horse Shoe Crabs and numerous birds. The Olive Ridley Turtles also visit this area for nesting during winters. The major attraction here is the boat ride through the mangroves which is organised by the local eco-tourism committee. The service is available from 8:30 am till 5:15 pm.
