Getting there & away
Overcrowded minibuses regularly run along the coastal road between Puri and Konark (Rs 20, one hour). There are also regular departures to Bhubaneswar (Rs 40, two hours). Konark is included in OTDC tours from Bhubaneswar and Puri. An autorickshaw will take you to Puri, with a beach stop along the way, for about Rs 200. Because the Puri–Konark road is flat, some diehards even cycle the 36km from Puri.
