Travel within city

Gopalpur is a beach town that is around 16 km from the city of Berhampur. Being a small town the local transport options are limited. There are two main local travel options that a traveler can choose from. Taxis and auto rickshaws are the main modes of local transport available in the town. Cycle rickshaws can also be found in certain places around Gopalpur.

Auto Rickshaw

Auto rickshaws are a common mode of local transport. They are found in most areas and are cheap. They are generally un-metered and it is advisable to negotiate the prices. They charge special night fares and one is advised to be prepared for lengthy negotiations with the auto drivers during the night.


Private taxis are available in certain places and most of the hotels have contact with cab agencies. These are a safer option, and you are more likely to get fair prices and hassle free transport through hotels.

Cycle Rickshaw

Cycle rickshaws are a good way to travel short distances, especially during the day and the evenings. They are also much cheaper than autos. There are no fixed prices for cycle rickshaws and it is advisable to negotiate before boarding.
