Best time to visit Udaipur

You can visit anytime during the year. But I think it is good not to go during the rainy season. Because these times the sea waves are very unpredictable.

  1. Sorry, to interrupt you. Udaypur Sea beach is in state of Odisha in Baleshwar district and it doesn’t belongs to Digha area. The facilities that West bengal is giving is to give the false claims of Udaypur belongs to their part. So my request is don’t spread false claims of West bengal government.
