This link will give you a list of hotels in Gopalpur http://www.tourorissa.com/hotels%20at%20gopalpur.htm
There is a hot spring in Taptapani 67 kms from Gopalpur
Chilka is 45 kms from Gopalpur
OTDC Panthanivas would be a good place to eat.
You can purchase fresh sea food at local markets and get it cooked by the locals.

an opinion

In the late nineties I was in both places. ABSOLUTELY nothing to do. Does that appeal to you? A friend raved about Gopalpur by sea. I couldn't see the attraction.
Be realistic - demand the impossible!

true - the absolute nothing to do.

gopalpur and puri are ideal weekend / 3-day destinations for folks from calcutta.
being an overnight journey - folks from that city yearn to do nothing - a get-away-from-it-all.
just spending time dipping and bobbing in the sea is what it is all about.
most of the domestic tourists make it to konarak as well, if in puri.
pipli - maybe not.

Freinds, I am planning a quick trip to Gopalpore-on-sea from Kolkata on 29 Dec, 2010. When I search the IRCTC site using BPC (Berhampore) as my destination code, I see only four trains and the distance is less than 200 kms. But, Wikipedia and other sites mention the distance is over 600 kms. Could you please let me know the trains that stop at Berhampore? Also, please give me the Phone number, email ID of the hotel Song of the Sea.

Friends, If you could please reply by today....

The phone number of Song of the Sea is on one of the links on this very page.
And the Wikipedia article that you mention has a link to Wikitravel article that gives a list of all trains. Thats how i got it too. So SEARCH and LOOK before you post.

The nearest station is Brahmapur(renamed from Berhampore) and the trains: http://erail.in?T=HWH::BAM:
