Talasari is one of the most tranquil and unspoiled beaches of Odisha. The name Talasari is literally means (row of Palm leaves in Odia). The waters of Bay of Bengal are very calm which means it’s one of the safest beaches that one can come across.

The name Talasari is derived from the two words Tala (ତାଳ) (meaning Palm) and Sari/Sarani (ସାରି/ସାରଣୀ) (meaning row). The palm trees surrounding the place gives such a name to it. The word Tala also means rhythm, which is reflected in the sea waves lapping against the shore.
